Published Sep 18, 2015Calgary's DRI HIEV play a truly strange blend of noisy post-punk and intense industrial music, and they've pieced together more of those unique sounds on a new EP called ContraVirtual.
Exclaim! is happy to premiere the five-song release, which demonstrates the band's penchant for ear-piercing yelps, snapping drums and fuzzed-out bass. Listen to it in full below.
DRI HIEV will release ContraVirtual with a show at Calgary's Bamboo on September 23. The cassette will arrive via Shake! and Bunghole.
