Band name:
MALA RACHA

Date & location formed:
September 2016 in Olympia/Seattle.

Reason for forming:
Representation is really important and I wanted to have a band by people of color for people of color that people could relate to and identify with, not only because of how things are right now, but because of how they’ve always been for marginalized groups.

What are your lyrics about?
My lyrics are about mistreatment and oppression of people of color, racism, and police brutality. Well, it’s about being sick of all that shit.

How would you describe your sound?
We’ve heard “Hard, Fast, and Stompy”, I guess that’s pretty accurate.

What’s in the future for this band?
We are playing Book Your Own Fest, a fest centering the voices of Womxn and Trans/Queer people in punk and hardcore on April 29th and 30th. Other than that, we just put out our demo and will have tapes soon!!

SUNSTAR STUDIOS California January 1, 2017.

For better or worse a new era has begun. These energies, flowing thru us all, have been forged thru our earthly vessels into the sonic switch blade which we call HWY! We are not sure where this road will take us but one thing is certain: There is only one true HWY!

What are your lyrics about?
Organized crime and alternate realities.

How would you describe your sound?
Every Philip K. Dick novel read aloud simultaneously through semi functioning peavey amps.

What’s in the future for this band?
For 2017, Tour west coast in august and 7″ out soon. Hopefully this time next year we will be touring the Midwest. A lot of great music going on out there and all over the US right now! Cheers!

New Blood! VOG, JUICE BOX, INGROWN, GLEAMED, and OBEDIENCE


December 1st, 2016 by

“New Blood” is our weekly feature spotlighting new bands from around the world! See below for info on how to submit. Now, check out some killer new shit…

vogllc-facebookBand name:
VOG

Date & location formed:
February 14, 2016 ~ HAPPY VOGGINTIMES DAY ~ in dreary Portland, Oregon.

Reason for forming:
Well after the brutal divorce and losing the kids to the international phenomenon known as Pokemon Go, I had no idea who I was anymore. My identity as a “Family Guy” had been ripped apart and no amount of import car buying or leaving nasty comments on lady strangers’ Instagram accounts was going to get me through this putrid wasteland called life. I finally called up the ole gang from the Hot Topic stockroom, and we all agreed that the best thing for 4 sexy, rock ‘n rollin’, middle-aged studs to do was to either try improv comedy or get the band back together.

What are your lyrics about?
The Mall. Confronting The Man. Avoiding Taxes – not as a rich person, but as a very poor and lowly mall rodent. Many of our songs are also just shout outs to all the cool dogs and innocent babies out there.

How would you describe your sound?
Make Amps Crate Again.

Fog (photo by Erika Elizabeth)

Fog (photo by Erika Elizabeth)

What’s in the future for this band?
We’re working on some more one-minute hits, and we’re planning on touring East + West Coast in 2017. No word yet on an interior continent tour, though we’re pretty fond of the Mall of America. And just to let all you silly “punx” know: We’re tired of “all ages” shows filled with BORING ADULTS and APATHETIC TEENS. We will not rest until those sweet, innocent babies get their rightful place at the show. BABIES TO THE FRONT! P.S. If you work at the Hot Topic in the Mall of America, please help us get a show there. Thanks.

barbed-wire-500x12

 

Band name:
JUICE BOX

Date & location formed:
Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Sometime in 2015? Maybe February.

Reason for forming:
Fuck the boys club! As a reason for the four of us to hang out and drink champagne every week. Some of us had never been in a band before and thought it was about time.

What are your lyrics about?
They are read off an iPad at live shows. Kayla reads Amazon reviews for sex swings, gross texts from straight white boys on Tinder (she has a lovely partner named Chris who is in a great band called Melted Mirror, so they are not from experience.) They are read from this website called straightwhiteboystexting.org which is definitely NSFW, and is updated often with horrifying messages. So the song kind of changes every time, but we think the recorded version turned out really great. And then there’s a song that educates us on how a pet rat can help you through depression.

How would you describe your sound?
A little post-punky, but also poppy. Someone called us “twee” recently which is confusing but fun.

What’s in the future for this band?
Playing shows around Calgary and supporting the local music community. Gwen, one of our members, is one of the founders of a cool new all ages venue at the local bike co-op, The Good Life Community Bike Shop. It’s something that Calgary needs so badly. They just had their first show and it was awesome — we hope to be involved with and support more stuff like that.

Band name:
ingrown-band-logo
INGROWN

Date & location formed:
We started jamming this band early January/February 2015 and played our first show later that month, in Boise, Idaho.

Reason for forming:
Since the summer of 2010 when we started playing punk, we’ve always been influenced by early 80s hardcore and that was it. We did bands like 1d, Grocery List, Flanders Ned, & our main inspiration was always my dad’s band State of Confusion, and Negative Approach. Strictly real style hardcore and not much else. Things went weird with lots of our friends and we weren’t really doing much music at the time. Ingrown started as a last minute “ah fuck let’s just form a new band and play that show next month” kinda idea, then we just stopped doing what we always did and wrote different stuff.

What are your lyrics about?
Mostly about hating bullies and racist bastards. Boise’s scene is dramatic as hell and lots of people are shit talkers so I just write about how I don’t like anything about them and want to hurt em really badly.

Ingrown (photo by Angela Owens)

Ingrown (photo by Angela Owens)

How would you describe your sound?
We started writing differently than we ever had and kinda didn’t know what we were doing. We realized Dave can blast insanely well. Then I just wanted to strum as fast as I can. We started caring less about following the same guidelines we always had, so we went for something new. It was like hardcore with a lot of blasting poured all over it then a few breakdowns stuffed in the middle. We realized two stepping kicks ass too.

What’s in the future for this band?
Continuing to live the dream. We’ve recorded, put out a tape, played OHC, and toured. That’s everything we’ve ever wanted to do and it’s all we’re gonna continue to do over and over! We’re gonna do some cool little stuff within the next few months then wanna do a tour in the summer that’s gonna be way too long for us to handle. We’re gonna go to olympia in a month and record 5 or 6 brand new songs then see how that gets put out.

Band name:
GLEAMED

Date & location formed:
We formed in Apr. 2015 from Tokyo,Japan.

Reason for forming:
Spreading the heavy and brutal sound.

What are your lyrics about?
Hate,anger,depression,death and human stupidity.

How would you describe your sound?
Modern Powerviolence mixed with 90’s metalcore like Disembodied,early Zao etc.

What’s in the future for this band?
Our bassist might quit the band next year when he graduates from University. If so, our activity would get a little slower.

barbed-wire-500x12

 

Band name:
OBEDIENCE

Date & location formed:
Austin, TX 2016.

Reason for forming:
We (Dave and Chris) have talked about starting a project for years, and finally teamed up with like minded friends (Joe and Kevin) for some fast, straightforward hardcore.

What are your lyrics about?
Social commentary- not exclusively political. With all that’s been going on this year it’s hard to not fall into that.

How would you describe your sound?
We have multiple members bringing songs in and the results are usually pretty fast and short. US hardcore style with some Euro/Japan influence.

What’s in the future for this band?
Our debut 7″ (remixed version of our demo) will be out very soon on Fair Warning. New songs, more shows… Hopefully some touring in 2017!

Create to Destroy! 4th Annual Richmond Punx Picnic


October 26th, 2016 by

CreateToDestroyLogo

I dropped the ball and did not post this in time. That said, I hope y’all still made it out to the 4th Annual Richmond Punx Picnic in Richmond, Virginia. Even though this has already passed, I think it’s important to read what goes into making a fest happen and get a mini update on RVA. Interview with Bobby Egger of Vinyl Conflict Record Store and Headcount Records and Nathan Ryan by Amelia

What’s the scene like in Richmond, VA right now?
Bobby: Richmond’s scene is ever evolving. At its base it’s a college town so we have a turn over always of new students coming and going every year. It is also still a moderately cheap place to live, so we still find lots of very active bands who will tour a lot based out of here. I wouldn’t say any specific scene is really popping off more than another at this particular moment, but there is really something for everyone. When bands come through and have a decent gig, we know how to put on a good time and our crowd is always quite diverse.

4thrva_punxpicnic_aseptic

Aseptic at 25 Watt, 2015 Richmond Punx Picnic

Any good bands we should know about?
Bobby: For Richmond the list goes on an on. I’ll do my best and probably forget something important. BARGE, MAD EXISTENCE, FIRING SQUAD, NOSEBLEED, FRIED EGG, LEFT CROSS, SINISTER PURPOSE, NIGHT SHANK, MEMORY LOSS, ASYLUM, and KOMMUNION for hardcore punk for sure. The metal scene is just as sprawling, but I’m not even going to start on that.

Crimson Scarlet at 25 Watt, 2014 Richmond Punx Picnic

Crimson Scarlet at 25 Watt, 2014 Richmond Punx Picnic

How’d the Punx Picnic start?
Nathan: We started doing Richmond Punx Picnic because other cities like Baltimore and Philly were doing their own punx picnics and we started talking about it and decided that since nobody in Richmond was organizing one, that it was our duty as punx to at least do one and to see how it went. Richmond used to have Best Friends Day, which was occasionally peppered with punk and hardcore bands as well as Kollapse Fest, which was always stacked with the best punk and hardcore, but both events had permanently stopped happening. There have also been other punk fests in Richmond that did quite well such as No Way Fest, which additionally stopped after its 3rd year. The first year that we organized RPP it was kind of a gamble — a whole lot of shows over one weekend while we were used to only handling one show at a time. By the end of the weekend, we could tell that everyone had a blast and people were already starting to ask about the next year, so…

Has it evolved since then?
Nathan: It definitely has. Each year the cast of people who participate as RPP “staff” has rotated a bit. In the four years that we have been piecing it together we have all learned a lot. It seems that it’s picking up speed and we seem to have an easier time booking bands that we really want as each year passes. People seem more aware of it now that it’s been happening for a few years. We have also figured out what types of events, venues, and advertising works for us over time.

Fourth year — did you ever think you’d come this far?
Nathan: Honestly, not really. As we mentioned earlier, the first one was more like an experiment more than anything. We weren’t really sure that we could even pull it off. The second year that we did it, we had people approaching us, saying things like “this could be the next big thing in Richmond” like it had the potential to turn into another Best Friends Day or Kollapse Fest. The thing is — we don’t really want that. What is the most important to us is to showcase a roster of awesome bands as well as place emphasis on our own local talent. We have traditionally made it a point to avoid going heavy on metal or hardcore bands as well — all of those guys already have their own fests and big show weekends. It’s called Richmond Punx Picnic for a reason. It’s punk. It’s for punx.

Left Cross at The Rockpile, 2015 Richmond Punx Picnic

Left Cross at The Rockpile, 2015 Richmond Punx Picnic

Who is involved in organizing it right now?
This year there are four main organizers: Bobby Egger (Vinyl Conflict Record Store), Nathan Ryan (ASYLUM), Ryan Zell (DISEVERED, ASYLUM), and Justin Hast (PRISONER). We have a lot of friends within the Richmond DIY community who always pitch in each year without fail, mainly Kasey Simcoe, who was one of the original weekend organizers but has recently moved back to her hometown of Baltimore, MD. Shout outs and big love to Matt Sachs, and all of the maniacs from VSC community.

Where is the show happening?
Nathan: This year we have two shows at Strange Matter (one on Friday and a matinee on Saturday). There is also a late show on Saturday at 25 Watt. Besides the show we are hosting a daytime cookout at a local park and then the actual picnic itself which always held at this sandy beach along a beautiful stretch of the James River.

2015 Richmond Punx Picnic Guide

2015 Richmond Punx Picnic Guide

Is it hard to find an all ages venue in Richmond?
Bobby: The issues aren’t so much finding all-ages venues as it is finding all ages venues that will host what we are bringing to them. Richmond is a college town. There are so many bars that want shows and only a few of them that really support what we have going. As far as actual venues go, there are only about three or four willing to do punk. Richmond has a curfew of 11p.m., which is actually why most shows end up being 18+ it isn’t some nasty jab at kids and it was put in place far too long ago and should be removed in this day and age. However these rules were not put in place for concert go-ers as much as they are weak attempts to bring down crime rates. So finding a place that will let us do what we want, but having it over at an acceptable hour tends to be the issue. We do have gigs that will be all ages, and at worst 18+. Nothing will be 21+, it’s about city limitations not adhering to drinking booze.

Aspects of War and Final Assault are your headliners, who has headlined in previous years?
Bobby: Last year we had THE PIST as a headliner! The year before that we had ASPECTS OF WAR and WHO KILLED SPIKEY JACKET?, with CRIMSON SCARLET headlining an earlier Thursday gig.

Are there bands with women playing this year?
Bobby: Yes! Actually most of our locals this year will have ladies involved! NOSEBLEED, KOMMUNION, MEMORY LOSS, and ASYLUM all have females in them. THE BROOD from Philly also has a female member.

How can we stay up to date on the fest?
Nathan: Richmond Punx Picnic has an Instagram account (@rvapunxpicnic) as well as a Facebook page. It’s actually listed as PUNX RVA PICNIC because we had an issue choosing the name we wanted. Facebook has become a huge pain in the ass over the past few years, but unfortunately it’s a great tool for networking and advertising events and gigs.

Any last words, punks?
Nathan: Thanks to everyone for attending or participating over the past few years. It’s always stressful to book a weekend-long event every year, especially while all of us have relationships, jobs, and school to focus on but in the end, seeing so many amazing bands and partying super hard with all of your buddies is what keeps punk alive and reminds you that it’s all worth it. Up the punx! Richmond rules, OK?

 



New Blood! PURE PRESSURE, PESADILLA, BONDAGE, FINAL, and BOOJI BOYS


June 30th, 2016 by

“New Blood” is our weekly feature spotlighting new bands from around the world! See below for info on how to submit. Now, check out some killer new shit…

Band name:

pure pressure logo

PURE PRESSURE

Date & location formed:
March 2016 in Toronto.

Reason for forming:
To play hardcore punk in a low key, low stress band with people we haven’t played with before. Most of us aren’t really that close, and I guess we thought this would be a fun and rewarding way to spend time together outside of shows.

What are your lyrics about?
Karla: I was in an abusive relationship on/off for four years, and once I moved to Toronto and was completely removed from that person and the relationship, I realized that I had suppressed a lot of what had happened over those years.
With everything coming back, and that person coming into town for a festival, I began having panic attacks due to the fear of being put into another one of those situations again. But I was very fortunate and I was able to attend therapy sessions so when I was in the same rooms with that person, I no longer felt that fear or anxiety, and it was no longer me who was having to leave the room. So the majority of the writing ended up being about all the different sides to the spectrum of being in that type of relationship, and how devastating the aftermath of it can be.
I have also been displaced for the majority of my life, having spent the first 4 years in Mexico, growing up in the American Midwest (Kansas City), and then living in the Canadian PNW, so touching on the broken immigration systems in both the US and Canada came naturally as a part of the lyrics.

pure pressure band photo 2

How would you describe your sound?
Robert: It’s pretty traditional hardcore punk i.e. early Agnostic Front, Negative Approach, Straight Ahead, etc. When we started piecing together our first songs I kind of wanted to do a throwback to what is, in my opinion, the golden age of contemporary Toronto HC (bands like Urban Blight, Violent Future, and Bad Choice, all of who existed before I lived here). But I don’t really think anyone else in the band thought about it that way, and we maybe don’t sound much like those bands all in all.

What’s in the future for this band?
Write some more songs, play some more shows. We have a couple good ones coming up in the next few weeks, and we are playing Not Dead Yet in October.

Date & location formed:
October 2015, Santiago de Chile.

Reason for forming:
We like punk.

What are your lyrics about?
Lyrics are about true survivors.

How would you describe your sound?
Third world noise.

Band name:Bondage graphic
BONDAGE

Date & location formed:
February 2016.

Reason for forming:
We all had a want for a place we could come together and create music. Each one of our experiences as women within our community, city, country, and world are all different. We come from different backgrounds, cities, families, cultures yet having a place to vent, talk about our lives, hang out and not feel judgement and write punk was something important to us.

What are your lyrics about?
Sometimes, they’re serious. Sometimes, tongue and cheek. A way to get across: we are all tired. So fucking tired. Of everything.

How would you describe your sound?
Bratty moody punk.

What’s in the future for this band?
We just released our demo about a week ago and have only played two shows. Our next show is with PATSY in July in Austin. It’s goin’ be sick.

Band name:
final logo
FINAL

Date & location formed:
November 2015 in Bogotá, Colombia.

Reason for forming:
We decided to form the band to do something different than our side projects, our guitar player is also in SECTA, the bass player plays for TRAICION, the drummer’s in TUMBAS, and we all share the same taste in music.

What are your lyrics about?
Our lyrics are basically a cocktail of personal stuff we live through on a daily basis. Stories of raw human decadence, cries of agony, it’s all reflective of our dystopian view of the future.

final band photo

How would you describe your sound?
We’ve always aimed for the rawest sound possible, taking reference from bands like CRIMEN fom Mexico with their distorted guitars and bass lines, DESTINO FINAL from Spain with delayed and echoed vocals, and last but not least the catchy sound of ESKORBUTO.

What’s in the future for this band?
We are touring in the US west and east coasts and we’re playing at the Latino Punk Fest in New York in August. We’re planning to record a long play record to accompany the demo, and our EP called Muerte that is coming out soon. After that we want to tour as much as we can, get to every corner of the globe, and wait until the Judgement Day arrives.
