A band that has averaged 100 shows per year, sharing stages with Metz, KEN mode, and a litany of other greats from across the noise-rock and post-punk spectrums, Tunic is no stranger to the road. The band – vocalist/guitarist David Schellenberg, drummer Dan Unger, and bassist Tomas Ingham – will tear across half of North America once again this May, this time performing songs from its glorious new album, Wrong Dream.
Recorded and mixed at Machines With Magnets by Seth Manchester (The Body, Liturgy, Lightning Bolt), Wrong Dream smashes the boundaries set by the band’s previous work and represents a giant step forward. The core elements of Tunic’s anxiety-ridden sound are intact – a herky-jerky assault of pummeling drums, distorted bass, discordant guitar, and wild-eyed vocals, somewhere in the noise-punk territory between Amphetamine Reptile and Three One G – but Wrong Dream is the band’s greatest and most engaging work to date. The band’s tangle of dissonance and angst is laced with heart-swelling moments of melody and startlingly vulnerable lyrics, making for songs that cut deeper than what came before.
Adventurous and painfully honest, Wrong Dream is the sound of a band having the courage to fulfill its potential. While still rife with sounds that will perk the ears of old Tunic fans, and most AmRep or Three One G devotees, Wrong Dream sees Tunic assume an accessible new form – something closer in spirit to Fugazi than to anything that can be neatly boxed as “noise-punk” or another such genre.
