Birth Defects are the L.A. band that play hard, fast, loud AND ugly—too many people leave out that last one—and when they're really setting themselves on fire they come off like the Dicks' Gary Floyd fronting some bar-breaking Zeke-style punk. They're back now with "Yolf," the first salvo from their coming second album—produced by Ty Segall, just like the last one—and it's ninety nasty seconds of Motorhead-style thrash 'n' roll with some dental-drill guitar work. Birth Defects' Everything Is Fine—an ethos for this era—explodes into being on Jan. 26, 2018, on Wavves's Ghost Ramp label, and they'll be putting some new scorch marks on the stage at their record release show at the Echo on Jan. 31.

Birth Defects are the L.A. band that play hard, fast, loud AND ugly—too many people leave out that last one—and when they’re really setting themselves on fire they come off like the Dicks’ Gary Floyd fronting some bar-breaking Zeke-style punk. They’re back now with “Yolf,” the first salvo from their coming second album—produced by Ty Segall, just like the last one—and it’s ninety nasty seconds of Motorhead-style thrash ‘n’ roll with some dental-drill guitar work. Birth Defects’ Everything Is Fine—an ethos for this era—explodes into being on Jan. 26, 2018, on Wavves’s Ghost Ramp label, and they’ll be putting some new scorch marks on the stage at their record release show at the Echo on Jan. 31.
