Whatever Forever is Tipper Gore’s worst fears incarnate. A horrifying concoction of apathy and malaise wrapped in a delectable sheet of hatred, drowned in a bath of contempt represented here by club sauce. Great for parties, ask your caterer for details!

Oozing Wound spent four days getting a studio tan at Minbal Studios in Chicago to record the new album Whatever Forever with recording engineer Matt Russell, which is four times as long as it took the band to record its 2013 debut Retrash. Russell mixed the album and it was mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering.

Song-by-song breakdown:

Rambo 5 (Pre-Emptive Strike): Another love letter to the greatest movies and our hope that a fifth installment is coming. We gave it a title, Stallone. WE WANT THIS SO BAD PLEASE LET US WRITE THE THEME SONG.

Diver: Look, I’m not trying to be a downer, but when people you love die it can be, uh, painful?

Deep Space: Deep Space Nine episode 619 “In The Pale Moonlight” One of the greatest, if not the greatest, episode from the best Star Trek series (shut up, yes it is).

Mercury in Retrograde Virus: Ever notice everyone who complains that planets are out of alignment and it’s fucking up their life just seems to have a fucked up life period?

Weather Tamer: Senator Jim Inhofe of pretend grown-ups state Oklahoma. The man famous for bringing a snowball onto the senate floor in a confused attempt at explaining the “big lie” of climate change. When we don’t have fresh water anymore and all the coastal cities become water parks, you can thank this shit stain of a human.

Everything Sucks, And My Life Is A Lie: When you write something catchy, best to wrap it in a shroud of sarcasm.

Eruptor:Not quite a song and not quite a word. Let’s play connect the songs!

Tachycardia: Ever feel like you want to die only to realize you really just want everyone else to?

You Owe Me, Iommi: Better mock your heroes too.

Sky Creep: Vladimir Komarov, the first man to die from a space mission, but not actually in space. Really fucked up story. He amended his will before the flight for an open casket funeral so the generals would have to see what they did to him. Google image search to see why!
