New Blood! KID CHROME, PRYSS, TRUE BODY, PIGEON MEETING, THE WRAITH, and IRON EYE


October 6th, 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:
KID CHROME

Date & location formed:
I got my Tascam four track April 2013 and I’ve been recording Kid Chrome stuff with it since then, but the first show where I performed the songs live was June 2nd this year in Seattle, WA.

Reason for forming:
I mean, it didn’t really “form.” I’ve always just kind of done solo recording projects in my room, but I started doing it live because someone asked, and I said yes. And then I liked how it turned out haha.

What are your lyrics about?
The lyrics are vague and simple rock n’ roll concepts about extremely personal things.

How would you describe your sound?
Someone in a windowless basement with a four track, guitar, and a drum machine, who likes The Stooges and Roky Erickson a lot and can’t seem to get it right, but is trying the hardest they can.

What’s in the future for this band?
Hopefully get a record out and tour a lot, or forever, or just put out demos and mixtapes and tour a lot.

Band name:
PRYSS

Date & location formed:
Springfield, Illinois like December of 2015.

Reason for forming:
We just wanted to play some hawdcore.

What are your lyrics about?
Everything from personal struggles to being an unwavering, unapologetic hardass. The things that are just easier to say when you are yelling them at strangers.

How would you describe your sound?
Each of us has a style of hardcore and punk that we’re all more familiar with. Tater likes that 77 rock n’ roll punk thing, Gus and Drew like ignorant tough guy shit, and Blue digs on like post-punk/hardcore. Our sound borrows from each of these little bit, but the ignorant tough gal punk shines through the most probably.

What’s in the future for this band?
Right now we’re working on our second tape and also a little weekend run in December. Also we’re playing that insane fest that Ralph is putting on in Chicago in December 2016.

True Body (photo by Jose Alberto Martinez)

Band name:
TRUE BODY

Date & location formed:
June 2015, Virginia Beach VA.

Reason for forming:
There’s a need for the sweat and primal energy of performance. We’ve got nowhere to call home when we’re not on a gig.

What are your lyrics about?
Paranoia, grace, eternally shaking a fist at the sky.

How would you describe your sound?
Rock n’ roll, through and through.

What’s in the future for this band?
Playing more shows, touring the planet, making more records.

Band name:
PIGEON MEETING

Date & location formed:
Formed in November 2015 in Richmond, VA but didn’t really do much until March 2016.

Reason for forming:
We just want to make music that we’d listen to and can be proud of.

What are your lyrics about?
Lyrics are about personal issues, politics, DIY, and questioning whether or not lyrics are relevant in music.

How would you describe your sound?
Crusty melodic screamo punk.

What’s in the future for this band?

the-wraith-band-artworkBand name:
THE WRAITH

Date & location formed:
March of 2016, Los Angeles.

Reason for forming:
The band was originally started as a home recording project by Kaz. He met Davey and was a fan of his last band Lost Tribe, and they wanted to do the same sound.

What are your lyrics about?
Personal issues.

How would you describe your sound?
UK post punk mixed with LA Deathrock.

What’s in the future for this band?
Tape and 7” coming out on Death Shadow records. More shows around the LA area. West coast tour in Feb of 2017 with Portland’s Shadowhouse. Record full length LP

Band name:
iron-eye-band-logoIRON EYE

Date & location formed:
Started playing in mid 2015 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Reason for forming:
We were all sort of on a dry spell of playing in heavier bands and decided to start a straight edge hardcore band. Something uncommon in our area. We’ve since had member changes and have give up on the straight edge dream as a band. It’s hard to have a straight edge band in a place that has like 10 straight edge people.

What are your lyrics about?
They are mostly very angry and ranting about something or someone.

How would you describe your sound?
Take a straight up hardcore band and just make it a bit heavier. Dirty bass and guitar tones and heavier vocals. Almost Think I Care like.

What’s in the future for this band?
We are currently writing to record our second release. Likely a 7″ this time around.
