Oozing Wound spent four days getting a studio tan at Minbal Studios in Chicago, IL to record the new album Whatever Forever with recording engineer Matt Russell, which is four times as long as it took the band to record its 2013 debut Retrash. Russell mixed the album and it was mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering.
Zack Weil explains, "In the past we've explored what it means to be a band in the twenty-tennys (Retrash), and how life is a pointless pummeling from the pugilist known as existence (Earth Suck). Now we bring you Whatever Forever, a culmination of nihilism, yeah-dude radicalness of the early 90s, and the belief that taking anything too seriously is a guarantee it'll suck...You want fast shit? We got it! You want slow shit? We got it! You want weird shit? Fuck yeah, you do."
"So refreshingly anti-bullshit are Oozing Wound that they could conceivably turn out to be the Nirvana of thrash." - Noisey
