Too Violent, Be Your Own Pet's Second LP Trimmed Down


Three tracks from the band's 'Get Awkward' that was released last week have to be eliminated in the U.S. version since Universal consider it too violent lyrically.

Be Your Own Pet's sophomore set "Get Awkward" may have been released last week on March 18 but the album has to suffer a cut down after Universal Records that distribute the album Stateside deemed it "too violent". Three out of fifteen tracks have been chopped for its U.S. version.

According to the label, tracks like "Blow Yr Mind", "Becky" and "Black Hole" from the punk rock act include murder and violence content in their lyrics. The tracks were sought to be removed just weeks before its release date but are still available for listening on the band's MySpace page. They will also be included in the international version which will be distributed by XL Recordings.

The U.S. version of the LP was released by Universal in association with Ecstatic Peace, the label owned by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore.

The band is in the middle of a tour to promote the album in Europe. They are scheduled to wrap it up on April 19 in Madrid, Spain.
