ecorded in bedrooms and studios around their home suburb, Byker, Immortal Kombat is a document to the limitations of self-love; the pathology of loneliness in the modern world; the intrinsic need to connect and identify with other human beings; and of course, death, and how our approach to mortality affects the way in which We love. Sewn together across six tracks of squirming guitar riffs, thunderous drumming, taut vocals and razor witted lyrics, Immortal Kombat is EAT FAST on their leanest and most succinct form yet. Layering lo-fi garage aesthetics on top of pop song arrangements, EAT FAST was originally intended solely as the recording project of Newcastle’s Adam Pearson. But 2016 saw EAT FAST develop into a live band, with Pearson cutting short a PhD in contemporary poetry at the University of St. Andrews to move home and bring friends Mark Brown, James King and John Edgar into the fold. With influences ranging from Basil Bunting to The Cure, EAT FAST mix sugar-drenched harmonies with Pearson’s dark lyrical content. Their debut EP Fenham Dread(lock) garnered praise from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music DJs Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft, with online support flooding in courtesy of Noisey, The Line of Best Fit, DIY and Clash. Appearances at The Great Escape and BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds – as well as a first full UK tour in support of Honeyblood - confirmed EAT FAST as one of the most intense, energetic new bands in the country. Having landed spots in a slew of end of year tips lists, including DIY's Class of 2017 and The Guardian's Future 50, EAT FAST aired ' Sand Drone', the b-side to their raucous October 2016 single ‘Public Display of Affection’ in January. A biting riposte from one generation to another framed by EAT FAST's trademark sugar-fuzz guitars, it attracted support from Beats 1's Matt Wilkinson, as well as more praise from the BBC's Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscroft, and Phil Taggart.
