· You can always rely on !!! (Chk Chk Chk) for a party. The iconic New York City dance-punk outfit have proven themselves to be one of the most consistent acts of the 2000s, cranking out album after album of righteous grooves and slamming basslines.
· Wallop is another stellar addition to the wildly impressive catalog they’ve built over the course of over two decades together and stands as a testament to their hardworking approach and ceaseless desire to push things further.
· Recorded over the past year in lead singer Nic Offer’s Brooklyn apartment, the band picks up where 2017’s Shake The Shudder left off, further exploring the fringes of dance music with a focused edge, a carefree spirit, and their signature knack for big hooks, leading to new creative highs in a career filled with them.
· Wallop sees friends from across the spectrum appearing on a number of tracks, including Liars frontman Angus Andrew, Maria Uzor of British dance aesthetes Sink Ya Teeth, and Glasser's synth-pop wizard Cameron Mesirow, who all join Offer and !!! co-vocalist Meah Pace on this barn-burning party of a record.
· With an array of producers lending a hand—including Cole M.G.N. (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Beck, Julia Holter), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck), and long-time collaborator Patrick Ford—Wallop was stitched together to reflect the colourful, body moving tapestry that its end result represents.
· With Wallop, !!! have managed to maintain both their knack for crafting killer dance-punk and their sense of adventure.
