On March 23rd, Merge will release In the Court of the Wrestling Let’s, the debut full-length from British rock stars Let’s Wrestle.
Let's Wrestle met years ago and bonded over meat and records. After a while, a band was formed and soon the world shall be conquered. Let's Wrestle have influences as vast as Black Flag, Buddy Holly, Faust, and Edith Piaf, but are ultimately trying to be as raw as possible. They try to write songs that make your soul crumble as well as making you smile, sing along and clap your hands.
Wesley Patrick Gonzalez’ statement upon being signed to Merge:
As I sit here watching Richie Rich on Halloween, I think of the exciting Merge release of Let's Wrestle. Let's Wrestle are Big Rock Stars in England, fighting off girls and suing all the other pop stars (they once sued Seal and Heidi Klum for custody of their children), but they are relatively unknown in the US of stateside. Let's Wrestle are getting ready to play poker with the Yankee big dogs. Now when I say Yankee big dogs, I mean Great fucking Danes which is something you have probably heard about Merge. These guys are ruthless! We don't know if Merge have a motto, but I imagine it might be "don't play with wasps if you don't want to get stung by wasps."
The future looks pretty Mergetastic and Wrestlerific! We think you'll agree!
Please enjoy a download of “We are the Men You’ll Grow to Love Soon” from In the Court of the Wrestling Let’s. There's a video on the Merge blog, too! Singer Wesley Patrick Gonzalez describes this song as “Let’s Wrestle’s Barmitzvah from whence they turned from punk pre-teens into men who rock.”
Let's Wrestle Are Wesley Patrick Gonzalez (Vocals and Guitar), Mike Lightning (Bass and Vocals) and Darkus Bishop (Drums)
