Teen Suicide "I Will Be My Own Hell Because There Is A Devil Inside My Body" LP


Teen Suicide's first and only proper album, "I Will Be My Own Hell Because There Is A Devil Inside My Body," has been a sought-after release for many collectors after its ultra-limited vinyl release in 2012. Now, Run For Cover Records will be reissuing it with remastered audio, expanded artwork and eight never-before-issued bonus tracks. Across the album's 10 songs, the band displays a knack for different sounds and styles. Intimate, keyboard-driven tracks like "Cop Graveyard" and "Grim Reaper" sit beside more energetic, full-band outings like "Dead Bird Skeleton" and "Give Me Back To The Sky," the latter even adding an evocative viola, piano and choral arrangement to its chaotic center. It's to the band's credit that their more outre moments feel necessary, not distracting. What becomes clear upon listening to "I Will Be My Own Hell..." is that beneath the dreamy haze and noisy apathy of Teen Suicide's recordings exist earnest, extremely well-written pop songs that reflect and express the uncertainty and desperation of reality.
