Writing began while Jona was in exile in the United States in December 2010. Few weeks later, the “band” enters the studio and through the green haze emerged 3 tracks as brutal as a kick in the balls, Raw as an open wound, yet as tight as a Swiss watch. The result will be a split album with noise rock duo performance Kunz release through Pelagic Records in September 2011.
After the recording of the split, Louis decided to quit the bass in order to focus on vocals and crowd fighting. From then on, the band would not have a bass player anymore. To solve this issue, Jona found the solution: having a ridiculous amount of guitar and bass amps, cabinets and a huge custom pedal board to allow him to sound like 2 guitar players and a bass player.
Adepts of the DIY logic, impatient and also hyperactive Coilguns has recorded its second effort “STADIA RODS” in a live environment in one day. 30 minutes of live violence were released on march 15th 2012 through UK’s finest DIY label Dead Dead Dead Music on a 12’’ vinyl and in a handmade cd version through the band.
June 2012, while the band was playing a couple of shows in Australia, they received an e-mail from long time friends NVRVD from Germany asking if they would like to take part in a split album. Coilguns obviously accepted and a week later they booked the YOYO studio in Perth, Australia with Adam Round. After 4 live takes of each song, a new ep was born. This last piece of spontaneous violence will come out on a 10’’ vinyl and in fancy A5 cd version. This release will also be the first one featuring HUMMUS RECORDS, a new label created by guitarist Jona Nido.
Right after getting back from Australia, the band had the chance to support Baroness, Norma Jean, Darkest Hour on selected shows and recently got offered to follow grind legend Nasum on 3 dates of their Farewell Tour 2012, main support being Black Breath. This came as a bonus to the previous supports of The Dillinger Escape plan, The Ocean or festivals where the band has performed next to international acts like Napalm Death, Sleep, Agnostic Front, The Secret, A Storm Of Light...
In november 2012, Coilguns entered the STUDIO MECANIQUE in La Chaux-de-Fonds to record their first full-length « COMMUTERS ». COMMUTERS, as per usual has been recorded entirely live in one take (except the vocals). Long time friend Keijo Niniima from Rotten Sound / Nasum came down to Switezrland and recorded vocals on selected tracks. Some songs have been recorded in the city’s rock venue the BIKINI TEST and feature up to 5 guitar players, all live recorded.
