Swimming With Sharks Records regretfully announces adding Forced Abortion from Palatine, Illinois to the roster. The band has been abusing ear drums and pissing people off since July 2012. The band is reminiscent of controversial grind-core/noise-core acts such as Anal Cunt (Earache Records). Most of the band’s appeal lies in their truly bizarre and often offensive album and song titles, such as the band’s “Swastika” EP, released in January of 2013, which features song titles such as “Acidic Cow Urine Drinking Fountain”, “Inverted Limb Buried Beneath a Pile of Paralyzed Horses”, “Pussy Cunt Cop Killer”, “Insane Clown Pussy”, and “It’s Holocaust Time”.
The band attracted the attention of Noah “Shark” Robertson from The Browning (Earache Records) and owner of Swimming With Sharks Records, by sending an email that simply read, “Sign us faggots.” Robertson comments, “At first I was thinking to myself, who the hell does that?! Once I checked out the band, I couldn’t stop laughing and knew I had to sign them to the label immediately. Do yourself a favor and add the band on Facebook! You won’t be disappointed… well, maybe a little.” One of the founding members, Cannibal, states: “This label sucks and I want to kill myself. When I was five years old, I tried killing my two month old brother by drowning him. I have aids.”
The band will be releasing their latest music masterpiece called ‘Violent Monkey Orgy’ which will be available world-wide on February 24, 2013 via Swimming With Sharks Records.
