Band name:

OXIDANT

Date & location formed:
Will S. and Mike met early last year at the first meeting of a group called To the Front Music Alliance, a group designed to bring marginalized members of Raleigh NC’s punk scene together to make friends, start bands, and create art. Mike was a recent transplant from Buffalo and had played in a number of bands up there and wanted to form a group down here. Will B. joined later that summer, and KJ joined in November 2016, solidifying the lineup.

Reason for forming:
Raleigh’s scene is constantly waxing and waning and unfortunately at the moment most bands in the area with DIY ethics have broken up and most houses have disbanded so we are trying to fill the void. We also want to promote a less homogeneous scene.

What are your lyrics about?
Songs like Third Crack and Guillotine talk about specific problems like the School to Prison Pipeline as well as exploiting the status of undocumented immigrants for cheap labor. Other songs are more personal, such as the song Deconstruct where we talk about the idea of no longer respecting an individual after discovering they have mentally and physically harmed others, and the song Joey, which is a deeply personal song about the loss of a best friend.

How would you describe your sound?
There is a wide array of ages in the band and we all come from different backgrounds so our sound is quite varied. Generally we are attempting to hone the raw power of the early west coast powerviolence bands all while taking nods from early NY, DC, Boston, SoCal, and Midwest hardcore punk. Swedish, German, Japanese, Finnish, Dutch, and early Italian hardcore are also a crucial part of our sound.

What’s in the future for this band?
We are very excited and proud of our newly recorded EP, titled Deconstruct, which will be out on To Live A Lie Records before the end of the year. We have plans to play shows across NC and VA, and will possibly trek further up the east coast within a year.
