EXCLUSIVE | We Need Surgery-album premiere

We Need Surgery's origins date all the way back to 2007 when they gathered one night in Seoul just to jam for fun. By the time the sun had risen they had written eight songs and two nights later played their first live show. 2009 brought about a series of line-up changes, solidifying the band and their sound with three Canadians from Vancouver, Brandon Butler, Miso Stefanac and Valentino Avignoni, American Paul Johnson and Korean Jungkyu Lim (aka Johnny Q). The band went massive in Korea that year appearing on magazine covers, TV shows, radio interviews and all of Korea's major music festivals, but were burnt out on the small scene by 2010 and moved to Vancouver, where they would finally record their debut album with Dave Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy) and Kevvy Maher (Fake Shark! Real Zombie!). Out on Light Organ Records. Have a listen here.

Brandon Butler is actually from the States as well. Also worth noting is the other Producer on the album Futcher.

Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the time and
actual effort to produce a good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
