The "Red Hot Sand" 7" EP is the debut release by Flat Worms, led by Will Ivy (Dream Boys, Wet Illustrated, etc.) on guitar/vocals, backed by Tim Hellman (currently Thee Oh Sees, formerly Ty Segall, Sic Alps) on bass and Justin Sullivan (Kevin Morby, the Babies) on drums. Recorded by Drew Fischer at Golden Beat Recording Studio and Wayne Faler in his home.
"I was listening to Swell Maps one day and realized I wanted to play rock and roll again," says Will Ivy (of Dream Boys, Wet Illustrated, Bridez), guitarist/singer for his new band Flat Worms. On top of his current solo project on Pretty Penny Records, he started writing noisy and smart punk tunes with the help of Justin Sullivan on drums (formerly the Babies, currently Kevin Morby) and Tim Hellman on bass (currently Thee Oh Sees, formerly Ty Segall and Sic Alps and Wet Illustrated). This three song 7", 100 copies each red and gray vinyl "Red Hot Sand" on the A-side, "Petulance" and "Sovereignty" on the B-side, marks the band's debut, available mailorder-only through the label, 300 on black available in stores. Recorded by Drew Fischer at Golden Beat Recording Studio and Wayne Faler at his home.
