VICE Records are pleased to announce the signing of Brooklyn, NY-based trio Growing, kicking off 2010 with the release of their new album PUMPS on April 6th with a free download for the transcendent album track “Hormone” available now. Growing’s latest offering is another top-shelf freakout of glitch, fuzz and drone. Drum machines create dense tribal rhythms and form the bedrock for the loneliest dance floor in the universe. Vocal samples swoop in and out like starlings over effects laden synths and guitar. Growinghas given birth to a magical creation with PUMPS – it’s the audio equivalent of coming out of an anesthetic haze with a squirming pile of joy wrapped safely in your eardrums.

Work on PUMPS began March 2009 at Ocropolis Studio in Brooklyn and was painstakingly arranged and mixed over a period of nine months. In between bouts of working at the studio, 2009 found Growing touring Japan and Italy for the first time, concluding the year with a second appearance at All Tomorrow’s Parties and joining Fuck Buttons for a national US tour. 2010 tour dates to be announced soon.
