Carpenter Brut, the enigmatic French synthwave artist whose Trilogy album and subsequent “Turbo Killer” video placed him at the forefront of the growing musical movement, released the eight-song album, Leather Teeth, last week via No Quarter Prod/Caroline.
Leather Teeth is the soundtrack to a movie envisioned by Carpenter Brut, one that tells the story of a shy American teenager, Bret Halford, who can’t get the girl and will do anything he can to win her over, including becoming the singer of one of the most talked about bands in mid-‘80s glam-metal, Leather Patrol.
Musically, Carpenter Brut says the new album is a “pure frenzy like Master of Puppets, or any of the good old metal albums: eight tracks wrapped in 32 minutes of sound. Put it on repeat if it’s too short.”
Leather Teeth is available now to stream and purchase at this location.
