3TEETH, the LA-based band that “mix state-of-the-art sensory overload with a take-no-prisoners level of aggression” (Rolling Stone), unveil the video for “AMERICAN LANDFILL” via Consequence of Sound.
“The director, Matthew Charles Santoro, has been my best friend since 4th grade, so it was really cool to finally be able to work on something together,” says 3TEETH vocalist Alexis Mincolla. Santoro’s credits include the visual effects on “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “300” and numerous other films. “We wanted to make an homage to the ‘90s action movies we grew up on but we also wanted to make an allegory that touched on today’s concepts of surveillance, cyberspace, and exploring the relationship between reality and simulation. To me the landfill represents a giant sentient data dump who’s algorithmic understanding is just trapping you in the echo chamber of your very own inescapable memetic conception camp. It doesn’t matter if it’s cyberspace or reality, no one escapes the ‘AMERICAN LANDFILL.’”
The band recently announced a European trek with Ministry:

July 3 Glasgow, UK SWG3
July 4 Birmingham, UK O2 Institute
July 6 London, UK O2 Shephard’s Bush Empire

North American tour dates will be announced soon.
The video debut and tour news follow the announcement of a July 5 release date for METAWAR, 3TEETH’s third album and their RED Music debut. Pre-orders for the Sean Beavan (Nine Inch Nails/Marilyn Manson) produced album are available now.
3TEETH released their self-titled debut album in 2014, seeing the 14-track collection top the iTunes electronic charts and gaining the outfit widespread attention, both amongst music lovers and musicians, leading to the band’s opening slot on two legs of Tool’s 2016 North American tour. Once off the road, 3TEETH locked themselves in the studio, releasing their sophomore album, <shutdown.exe>, in the Spring of 2017. The album hit #23 on Billboard, and took them across North America and Europe — headlining, and supporting acts such as Rammstein and Danzig. 3TEETH is Alexis Mincolla (vocals), Xavier Swafford (keyboards), Andrew Means (modular synth/bass), Chase Brawner (guitar) and Justin Hanson (drums).
