Carpenter Brut Drops Surprise Album 'Leather Teeth'
French synthwave hero Carpenter Brut has popped up out nowhere today to give us a surprise album. Titled Leather Teeth, the full-length is out now.
The eight-track record comes No Quarter Prod/Caroline and is an imagined soundtrack from the mind Carpenter Brut. According to a press release, the story is a shy American teen named Bret Halford, “who can’t get the girl and will do anything he can to win her over, including becoming the singer one the most talked about bands in mid-’80s glam-metal, Leather Patrol.”
As for how that actually sounds, though, Carpenter Brut says to expect “pure frenzy like Master Puppets, or any the good old metal albums: eight tracks wrapped in 32 minutes sound. Put it on repeat if it’s too short.”
Down at the bottom the page, you can stream Leather Teeth in full — and put it on repeat — or pick it up over here the service your choice.
Along with the new album, Carpenter Brut has a North American tour coming up, complete with Canadian dates in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. You can see the full schedule below.
