“This is simply a tribute to all of those Shiba Inu dogs out there, all over the world. Shouts out to them for being so proud of their chocolate buttons.” — SOFY MAJOR
As Total Dump, the forthcoming new full-length from French post-hardcore/noise rock trio SOFY MAJOR draws closer to release, BrooklynVegan is pleased to unveil the band’s hilarious video clip for “Shiny Happy Asshole.”
Issues the band, “The title has absolutely nothing to do with REM; no reference of any kind. This is simply a tribute to all of those Shiba Inu dogs out there, all over the world. Shouts out to them for being so proud of their chocolate buttons. So inspiring.”
Adds BrooklynVegan, “We’re premiering ‘Shiny Happy Asshole’ along with its video, which plays on the song title fairly literally (it’s probably safe for work, your co-workers might just think you’re a little weird).”

SOFY MAJOR‘s long-awaited fourth full-length and follow-up to 2015’s triumphant Waste LP was recorded and mixed by Dave Curran (Unsane, Big Business) at Black Box Studios, mastered by Carl Saff (Fu Manchu, Rosetta, KEN mode, Child Bite) at Saff Mastering, and delivers eleven rocked out, Big-Muff-powered tracks of relentlessly raw, driving, melody. Fans of Unsane, Harvey Milk, The Jesus Lizard, Coliseum, and the like pay heed.
Total Dump will be released January 25th on limited edition vinyl via Corpse Flower Records with Deadlight Entertainment and Antena Krzyku handling the CD and vinyl releases in Europe respectively. Corpse Flower’s vinyl edition will come in three color variants – 100 gold, 100 mustard yellow with baby blue splatter, and 100 half tan/half sea blue.
Total Dump is the latest testament to SOFY MAJOR‘s ability to explore and evolve without losing its identity. Here, the band offer up what is undoubtedly their best songs to date and although every band will say that about their new record, SOFY MAJOR lives by it.

The creation of Total Dump was anything but easy. As the saying goes though, shit happens, and sometimes it happens in a big way whether it is on a personal or global level, hence the title… But the history of SOFY MAJOR has always been riddled with obstacles and setbacks and this time, the band could rely on a rejuvenated and solidified lineup to gut it out and enjoy a fruitful, creative process. All of this showed once they entered the studio, where sound wizard Dave Curran captured the magic. And it will show on stage. Following hundreds of shows across Europe, the UK, and the US, alongside Unsane, Pigs, Baroness, Big Business, Kylesa, and so many others, SOFY MAJOR is eager to deafen the masses again in 2019. Stay tuned for tour announcements in the weeks to come.
