High Tension – Death Beat

There’s been a heap of work happening behind the scenes of late. This being the first of recent projects that I can unveil.

Melbourne band High Tension are about to release their debut album and they asked me to do up the artwork. Even before this I think this band are really great and love all the other bands they are and have been in (The Nation Blue/Young And Restless). Over the weekend I got my hands on their finished cd…

HT-4…and here are some of the original woodcut prints that I did up especially for them to use:

HT-3 A little bit of ‘Evil Dead’ styled horror/humor for the inside.

HT-2 And big old “Don’t F*** With Me” Rottweiler on the outside. All stylised and  done up real pretty for the coverart.

This is what the woodcut looked like coming off the block in my studio.
HT-5 I’m most excited about the fact that the band will also have this on vinyl. All formats (digital etc) will be out 25th October. You should go to your favourite independent music store and get them to order you a copy or if waiting isn’t your style then sample the first song off it below.

Trainspotters might note the bass player Matt Weston is wearing my band’s t-shirt in this clip. Bonus kudos for the outstanding wardrobe selection.

More info and stuff about High Tension (that is well worth your time) is over on their Facebook page.
