New Blood! MOLLOT, SORRY, NOT SORRY, and INTERNT OPPGJØR


November 19th, 2015 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:
MOLLOT

Date & location formed:
Toronto, ON. March 2015.

Reason for forming:
Wanted to jam hardcore tunes, found some punks to do it with.

Mollot (photo by Mackenzie Burgess)

What are your lyrics about?
Мужская агрессия которая разрушает наши жизни и семьи. Жизнь после смерти, иммиграции и тюрьмы. Феминизм. Про то как Американцы используют Русских как аксессуары и романтизируют нашу жизнь. Ватевэр. (the Russian part says “masculine aggression that destroys lives and families. life after death immigration and prison. feminism. about Americans that use Russians as accessories and romanticize our lives. whatever”).

How would you describe your sound?
“I don’t like defining myself. I just am.”- Britney Spears

What’s in the future for this band?
We’re putting out a limited run split tape with The Boys for the end of November and hoping to release something more official by the end of the winter. Tour? USA? East Coast? Summer?

S/O TO THE BOYS.

barbed-wire-500x12

Band name:
SORRY, NOT SORRY

Date & location formed:
San Francisco. We became a 3 piece in September of 2014.

Reason for forming:
Friends wanting to play music together ///and a desire/need to play music. To start something new, especially when other bands have dissolved and/or people need to move on.

What are your lyrics about?
For the most part they come from our personal experiences– things we want to get out of our heads and hearts. This is a way to say what we might never say to another person or even out loud to ourselves, but feel free and hopefully safe to do so with each other. We also want to share these ideas both as a way to connect with people who will receive them, as well as to be heard as unique individuals. ///\\\internal, interpersonal, social, societal, structural, sometimes we are also writing with references to sources of inspiration and **support?**people, places, music, literature, film, ideas ….the challenge of relationships and communication, loving and affirming ourselves, getting to name and define ourselves, who we are, fucking up, traumas, addiction, mental illness, loss, lovers and ex lovers.

How would you describe your sound?
Sassy, loud, melodic and dissonant, angry, fun and danceable, multilayered. Most songs sound very different from each other. it is hard to label or genre our sound. We do have a lot of musical/genre influences like–RIOT GRRL, POSTPUNK…

What’s in the future for this band?
More song writing, more recordings, more shows, //and touring to Southern California and hopefully more places.

barbed-wire-500x12

Band name:interntcover
INTERNT OPPGJØR (Internal Affairs/Internal Conflicts)

Date & location formed:
Early mid-november at Barrikaden, Oslo.

Reason for forming:
We wanted to create a disgusting, mutated house-band for our squat in Oslo.
We’ve all played in other bands before. Also a project that wouldn’t be so focused on achieving something as much as playing shitty punk rock together.

What are your lyrics about?
Gentrification, perversion, shitty music and personal tantrums perceived through slimy 3d-vision.

How would you describe your sound?
Filthy, disgusting, noisy mutant punk shit inspired by old Scandinavian, english and Japanese hardcore punk.

What’s in the future for this band?
We’ve been playing a bit around in Norway and will embark on a Finland tour December ’15, then we’re planning to tour Europe sometime 2015.
Also we want to record a 4 track EP 7″ before the summer.
