Hammered Hulls, a new supergroup of sorts, debuted quietly last year. The Washington, DC-based band is led by the core duo Mary Timony of Helium and Ex Hex and Alec MacKaye of Warmers and Faith, and rounded out by Philly’s Chris Wilson (Ted Leo, Titus Andronicus) on drums and Mark Cisneros (Des Demonas, Kid Congo) on guitar. The four-piece just announced their first recorded material, a self-titled three-song single that will be released on August 9.
According to Hammered Hulls’ bio, “Every person in this band is a fan of every other person in this band. Mutual respect drives this train. But to say they are an odd collection of influences is to understate the point. If you tried you couldn’t imagine what this band might sound like.” With the three new tracks, “Written Words,” “Self Inflicted,” and “Looking After You,” you won’t have to catch the band live to hear what they sound like.
