New Blood! NOTHING OF MERIT, WAIL OF SIRENS and PISSING MATCH


April 2nd, 2015 by

Formerly a section in MRR magazine, “New Blood” is now a regular feature here on maximumrocknroll.com spotlighting new bands from around the world! See below for info on how to submit. Now, get to discovering some killer new bands…

Nothing of merit_logo

Band name:
NOTHING OF MERIT

Date & location formed:
May 2013, Houston, TX.

Reason for forming:
No one was playing political fast hardcore in our area — I mean like no one … there were some bands that called themselves punk but it was more in that fat wreck vein stuff that I don’t really consider punk.

What are your lyrics about?
Progressive solutions to problems where we can effect change, some left-wing politics … I studied economics in grad school so there is some of that. Also many personal songs about stuggle and how the world is seen through my eyes in general.

How would you describe your sound?
Old school punk rock. I am older and grew up in the days of the Big Boys and Articles of Faith and Naked Raygun, sort of skate-rock like. I guess we try not to pigeon hole the sound too much sometimes it just pours out in blasts of agression.

Nothing of merit

What’s in the future for this band?
We have a record coming out soon called American Blast. We just got the test pressings from it and it sounds really good. We have been playing both house and club shows — we have more material recorded but can only afford to put out one record at a time so that will come later.

Links and contact info:
nothingofmerit.bandcamp.com

barbed-wire-500x12

Wail of Sirens_Dan Carrington_logo

Band name:
WAIL OF SIRENS

Date & location formed:
July 2014, Västerås, Sweden.

Reason for forming:
Both Gustav and Hans played in other bands. But we had talked about forming a fast, relentless d-beat crustcoreband cause we were into a lot of the same music. So we exchanged some riffs and started rehearsing in the summer of 2014.

What are your lyrics about?
Everything that is wrong with the society we live in, and the people who rule it.

How would you describe your sound?
Relentless d-beat crustcore.

What’s in the future for this band?
Our EP “Final demands” will be released on cassette in april. We will continue to record our songs and are planning a split-7″ with the band “King of Pigs”. We’re also looking for shows!

PissingMatch

Band name:
PISSING MATCH

Date & location formed:
March 2014 in Buffalo, NY, USA.

Reason for forming:
Our guitarist, Aaron, recorded a 10-song demo by himself in October of 2013 and our singer, Jay, convinced him to make it a full-time band.

What are your lyrics about?
Shit that pisses us off: whether it be the inconsiderate behavior of certain people in the community at large, or the behavior of certain people involved in the punk community. Nothing is sacred.

How would you describe your sound?
Extremely short, fast, weird, and pissed songs.

What’s in the future for this band?
An upcoming 16 song 7″ entitled Break the Seal which will be a split release between us and Feral Kid Records due out this summer. More shows. More fun.

Links and contact info:
pissingmatch.bandcamp.com
