Never ones to shy away from the heavier side of things, the latest band to have us putting on our camo shorts and heading for a mosh-pit are Leeds-based post-punk-cum-hardcore outfit, FEHM. In keeping with the City's tradition of angular and angsty noise, they come off much like Eagulls, only less insane and a little more socially aware. And though both bands are interested in the current state of affairs, FEHM's forthcoming Animal Fat EP paints pictures of urban decay in a more tangible manor, though that doesn't make it any easier to digest.

The first track to be taken from that EP is 'Hand to Mouth; the pounding drums and prominent bass all but drowning out the atmospheric synth, each instrument propelling the track forward with the militant drive so crucial to hardcore. Think Bauhaus covering the Dead Kennedys, and you probably won't be far off the mark.

With Animal Fat released on April 11th, you won't have long to wait before you can sink your teeth in to FEHM's steak of societal politics, and though the elements of hardcore are sure to bring some vegans to the party, there's plenty they can get behind too. Having supported the likes of Yak, Crocodiles and Crushed Beaks the band are obviously making the right moves and impressing the right people, and we wouldn't be surprised to see FEHM go the same way as bands like the aforementioned Eagulls, and Hookworms.

The band are celebrating the record's release on Saturday April 11th, more info here.
