New Blood! MALA LECHE, LADRÓN, MEMORY LOSS, PROGRAM, VIRUELA, AND STUCKO


July 28th, 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:
MALA LECHE

Date & location formed:
El 25 de Julio del 2015 en un almacen lleno de hippies cubiertos en cuero tapados con esparragos.

Reason for forming:
Me Aburro…

What are your lyrics about?
Ansiedad paralizante, nada, frustraciones sexuales, nada.

How would you describe your sound?
Una sonrisa en la guata.

What’s in the future for this band?
nada siempre se viene.

Links and contact info:

Band name:
ladron band logo
LADRÓN

Date & location formed:
The idea for this band was floating around since summer of 2015, but it wasn’t until October that year that we actually wrote out songs and solidified the lineup that we have today. We are from South Florida.

Reason for forming:
We wanted to make a Latino presence larger in our scene. We love Los Crudos and they have a huge impact on us, but I wouldn’t say they influence us musically. People constantly throw around the words “white boy hardcore” when they talk about hardcore in South Florida and it’s really not that way at all.

What are your lyrics about?
Most of the lyrics are about US imperialism, racism, and people rising up to face their oppressors.

How would you describe your sound?
Catchy Oi! and UK82 influenced hardcore punk. Lyrics in Spanish being shouted over melodic riffs combined with hard stomping drumming and pogo beats.

What’s in the future for this band?
More touring, more music. We’re about to tour with Klout, who you just did a feature on, to the northeast to play Latino Punk Fest in New York. We have a tape with two new songs for that. Also, in December we’re touring to Texas and Mexico with Kombat from DC. We’re hoping to put out a 7″ sometime this year also. Here are the dates/event page for the Klout tour!

8/1 – MIAMI, FL @ The Granary w/ Antifaces, No Dice, Booger, and Go! Racer
8/2 – GAINESVILLE, FL @ The Nest w/ Rubbish, Vägra, TV Set, and Flower Child
8/3 – RICHMOND, VA @ Thunderdome w/ Regulator
8/5 – PHILADELPHIA, PA @ Time Cube w/ Blackout and Horse Girls
8/6 – NEW HAVEN, CT @ Thee House w/ Big Man and Sick Head
8/7 – BROOKLYN, NY @ Aviv LATINO PUNK FEST 2016 (no Klout)
8/8 – WASHINGTON D.C. @ Smash! Records w/ Mad Existence and Pink Film
8/9 – GREENSBORO, NC @ ??? w/ Substance and Bad Eric

Band name:
MEMORY LOSS

Date & location formed:
Richmond, Virginia. Lurch, Wilbo, and Leo started playing together in October 2015. Rachel joined in January, we played our a first show a few weeks later during a blizzard.

Reason for forming:
Seemed right/stop drinking alone/pass the winter months.

What are your lyrics about?
The lyrics mostly deal with depression, feeling disconnected emotionally, alienation and frustration.. the usual.

How would you describe your sound?
Noisy hardcore punk? Maybe “harsh” or “dark” should be in there somewhere. Loud.

What’s in the future for this band?
Continue to play out of town, trying to have a 7″ out by winter.

Band name:
PROGRAM

Date & location formed:
February 2015, McAllen, TEXAS.

Reason for forming:
We found like-minded, solid people, with the direction of bringing a different sound into our Rio Grande Valley’s punk community. That resulted in PROGRAM’s assembly with pillars, and amongst the ruins of local dissolved punk bands which helped consolidate our friendships, sound and the band’s foundation.

What are your lyrics about?
The lyrics talk about the things we experience and family’s circumstances like depression, addiction and poverty and their effects on me, on us, our friends and the people we love. Also about our community problems that prevail, but are not limited to the place where we live in the US/MEXICO border, for example: girls getting raped and slaughtered and people thrown into mass graves, the drug-war’s death toll, destruction and corruption; the unequal displacement of money. They also talk about broader spectrums that affect entire countries like war devastation, and the weapons used by systems to create and fight all these events.

How would you describe your sound?
Scandinavian-Dbeat-riffage influenced hardcore punk.

What’s in the future for this band?
Play some more in Texas, finish releasing the 7″, work on an LP and then tour in the US when and to where people invite us.

Band name:
VIRUELA

Date & location formed:
Summer 2016, México city.

Reason for forming:
We aren’t from CDMX, Lisa is from Canada and Patricio and I are from the north of the country. We became close friends, and wanted to play and do something together before we left the city. We jokingly called this whole deal “the suicidal punk mission” since we practiced, played shows, and recorded in just one month.

What are your lyrics about?
They’re about mental illness, being sick of the city you live in, sexual harassment, feeling like you don’t fit in anywhere, fighting against shit that wants to fuck you up, disdain for control freaks… pretty much how we feel about the things we hate and are against.

How would you describe your sound?
Scrappy, loud, dual-vocals, crusty punk with an Angry Samoans kind of vibe.

What’s in the future for this band?
We just released our EP. We’re talking about making tour dates all over the country next year, when Lisa comes back to Mexico. And of course we’re making cassettes. We’re really excited for all this!!!

Band name:
STUCKO

Date & location formed:
October 5th 2015, at 3:18 PM in our room talking through the window into the backyard.

Reason for forming:
What else are we gonna do, we dunno, next question.

What are your lyrics about?
Everything our age knows, but is too chicken to talk about.

How would you describe your sound?
If you took a bowling ball, and rolled it into punk, the seven ten split is Stucko.

What’s in the future for this band?
Play shows, meet people, Rolling Stone magazine.

New Blood! OLVIDO, KLOUT, SUNK, INCOMPETENTES, ПЕТЛЯ, and DIKTAT


July 21st, 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:
Olvido Band Logo
OLVIDO

Date & location formed:
Formally on February, 2016 in Mexico City.

Reason for forming:
We wanted to have fun with our friends on stage, play the music we wanted to hear, and sing about things we had on our heads for a long time.

What are your lyrics about?
We try to talk about our feelings in an honest way and also aim to address topics that concern –and sometimes– harm us.

Olvido (photo by Eli Bonfil)

How would you describe your sound?
Punk with popish melodies to tap your feet to.

What’s in the future for this band?
We are writing new songs that we are gonna record sometime later this year and put some tapes out. Also, we’re looking forward to play a lot in and out of Mexico.

Band name:
Klout Band Logo
KLOUT

Date & location formed:
We’re from South Florida and we actually started this band about two years ago, but we were really disorganized and didn’t know what we wanted to do, so we didn’t actually release anything until February of 2016.

Reason for forming:
We just wanna play some badass hardcore punk rock music and stray away from what most other bands from down here are doing.

What are your lyrics about?
My lyrics all draw a lot from personal experience, so everything I talk about is shit I actually see and deal with either in my personal life or in the hardcore scene we come from. They’re all just about shit I think fucking sucks.

How would you describe your sound?
We’re just a hardcore band and nothing else. We have tinges of punk, rock n roll, d-beat. There’s a lot of elements but at the end of the day it’s just no bullshit hardcore music.

What’s in the future for this band?
We just put out a promo tape, actually. It’s a promo for a 7″ we’ll probably put out later this year. We’re also going on tour in August with another band from South Florida that I’m also in, which is a Latino punk band called Ladrón. Here are the dates for that:

8/1 – MIAMI, FL – w/ Antifaces, No Dice, Booger, and Go! Racer
8/2 – GAINESVILLE, FL
8/3 – RICHMOND, VA
8/5 – PHILLY – w/ SMART HEARTS and BLACKOUT
8/6 – NEW HAVEN, CT
8/7 – LATINO PUNK FEST – BROOKLYN, NY
8/8 – WASHINGTON, DC
8/9 – GREENSBORO, NC

Band name:
SUNK

Date & location formed:
We started about a year ago around May in Moreno Valley, California. Since no one usually knows where that is, we usually just say Riverside to make it easier.

Reason for forming:
We had another band for a little while but a member moved away and then we just sorta lost touch with the other member so we reformed as SUNK and our vocalist of our last band learned to play bass as I was showing them the songs I made for the demo and then he eventually learned to play the bass well enough by the time we had our first show.

What are your lyrics about?
Being happy and skipping through happy rays of sunshine.

How would you describe your sound?
In person? Loud and probably annoying.

What’s in the future for this band?
Playing shows and hopefully putting out something that doesn’t sound too terrible.

Band name:
INCOMPETENTES

Date & location formed:
We seriously formed together in late summer 2015, after our first drummer left the band.

Reason for forming:
We are classmates and we started to listen to punk bands together. We feel disgusted about what we don’t like, and one day we had the idea to focus all that hate and anger into forming a band. None of us really knew how to play any instruments, so we practiced and finally pumped out all of this shit.

What are your lyrics about?
Our lyrics are about what whe hate, what we belive, what’s happened to us, and what we need.

incompetentes band photo

How would you describe your sound?
Dirty, noisy and riotous; only with that sound we can express ourselves.

What’s in the future for this band?
We will be recording a second demo soon, full of hate and noise, and also a possible split with our friends’ band Nervios.

Band name:
ПЕТЛЯ

Date & location formed:
We formed around a year ago in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

petlya band photo

Reason for forming:
Me and my buddy just moved to Saint-Petersburg from a small northern town and felt the urge to play some gnarly tunes.

What are your lyrics about?
Our lyrics are about insane people, the passion of human flesh, and about being locked up in the only decent city in Russia.

How would you describe your sound?
A quickly escalating fistfight between old drunk people on Sunday night in a gutter with the floor covered in piss and puke

What’s in the future for this band?
We are going to make some tapes with our last record, have a small Russian tour with our friends from Petrozavodsk, and hopefully film a short trash movie.

Links and contact info:
petlya.bandcamp.com

Band name:
DIKTAT, but for legal reasons we’re officially known as Diktat Bdx. Bdx is for Bordeaux. Everybody calls us Diktat anyway.

Date & location formed:
2014 in Bordeaux, France.

Reason for forming:
No reason why.

Diktat (photo by Chuck Ersatz)

What are your lyrics about?
Everyday life, not growing up, and craving to be as free as possible.

How would you describe your sound?
Raw hardcore punk with riffs and no vocal effects.

What’s in the future for this band?
We have a second tape coming out in the fall on Cool Marriage Records from Lyon.
