Syracuse, NY eccentric punk-grind trio Dialysis are soon set to release their debut LP, titled Pretty Men, through the band’s own Ryan Canavan’s label Hex Records (Bleak, Ed Gein, Godstopper, etc.). Following two seven-inch releases and a split with Bleak, the new album comprises 20 powerful and dynamic tracks that feature elements of noise and thrash. Various samples are also included in their quirky punk- and hardcore-filled grindcore approach, which Dialysis have now expanded with the introduction of saxophone on this record.
Pretty Men also incorporates humour into their unorthodox sound, with bizarre and colourful artwork by Ryan Besch, as well as tongue-in-cheek lyrics that bring a light-hearted aspect to the album while tackling some serious subject matter. In this recent interview with Svbterranean, Canavan (vocals, saxophone) discusses Pretty Men, how the release compares to their previous material and the decision to bring saxophone into the mix. He also talks about Dialysis’ diverse sound and the album’s lyrical themes, as well as the Syracuse music scene and much more.
