THE BEAST YOU ARE
The Beast You Are , the new album from L.A.'s Big Business, delivers 10 doses ofuncategorizably heavy rock music. From the ominous death march of "The Moor You Know" tothe soaring "Let Them Grind" to the delicate, ethereal "Under Everest," the band continues todefy listeners' expectations. There are hints of Melvins, Torche, and Tad, but drummer CoadyWillis (Murder City Devils) and bassist/vocalist Jared Warren (Karp) bring their own offkiltersensibilities to the genre. The two formed Big Business in 2004, and their idiosyncrasies sooncaught the attention of The Melvins. Together they recorded three albums, an EP, and varioussongs between 2006 and 2016, all while maintaining their own identity as Big Business. Theyalso picked up guitarists Toshi Kasai and Scott Martin along the way, but on 2016's CommandYour Weather , they returned to their core duo format. They remain in that lineup for this, theirsixth full length: The Beast You Are.
