CLITERATI: Oregon Hardcore Punk Practitioners To Release Ugly Truths / Beautiful Lies

Over a year in the making, Ugly Truths / Beautiful Lies is ripping fifteen-track/thirty-two-minute socio-political exposé on the USA’s divisive administration with humor and quick wit. Having performed over a hundred shows in that time, test driving many of the tracks live, CLITERATI is sharper and more ravenous than ever before. Ugly Truths / Beautiful Lies was recorded by longtime comrade Greg Wilkinson (Necrot, High On Fire) and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust, Power Trip) with cover art by legendary Japanese artist Sugi (Doom, Death Side, Hellshock) whose illustration reflects a personal interpretation of Ugly Truths / Beautiful Lies’ title track.

From the basements of Dayton, Ohio, comes Roley Yuma

There is an oft-overlooked difference between inventors and innovators. Inventors make things. Innovators make history. In rustbelt cities like Dayton, Ohio, where the heroin epidemic runs rampant, manufacturing has long left, yet Walmart thrives, the catalyst pumping lifesblood and bringing color to its inhabitants is born of the spirit of innovation that exists in small ecosystems and independent arts communities.

While it would be overreaching to claim that Dayton-based rock misfits Roley Yuma invented the disruptive, dangerous and danceable sounds that put a pin for the city in music’s landscape — that honor deservedly belongs to the Troutman Brothers, The Ohio Players, Brainiac, The Breeders and Guided By Voices, and the like largely — it is more than fair to say that these rabble rousers are carrying that torch forward possessed by that same enduring spirit of innovation.

Generationals Share “Gatekeeper” Track

“…the duo of Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer craft meticulous pop arrangements bridging the gap between Oracular Spectacular electronic psych and the corresponding guitar pop of that album’s period. With a less than subtle nod to the conversational synths of Talking Heads, “Gatekeeper” is no different.” – Flood
