February 25th, 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:
StrutterArt

Date & location formed:
February 2015, Austin, Tx

Reason for forming:
Our drummer Sam from is Montreal and was visiting (basically living in) Austin and wanted to practice drums to keep from getting rusty so we all got together to mess around. We needed up writing a song that made my big toe shoot up in my boot so we just kept crankin out the hits. After 6 1/2 weeks we recorded 11 songs and I busted a hole through my boot.

What are your lyrics about?
Privilege. Being self aware of that privilege. Recognizing power. Questioning your place in punk. Questioning your place in the world. Feeling helpless. Being apathetic. Being a hypocrite. All types of relatable shit.

How would you describe your sound?
That first cool refreshing sip of a freshly cracked ice cold Sprite. And also Bowser the dog biting your hand.

What’s in the future for this band?
We just released a 7″ on Beach Impediment which will also come out on Static Shock Records in the U.K. sometime in the spring. We plan to continue recording once Sam (Drummer) comes back from Australia. He won’t stop Fucking moving. We still play shows in Austin occasionally with Mike from Impalers.

Band name:
IMG_2697 (Pronounced “Lah Eh-key”)

Date & location formed:
We formed around the spring of 2015 and our first show was at a new blood showcase in Los Angeles (E7th warehouse) with bands such as ausencia, strangers fumigados red tape and roach clips in may 2015.

Reason for forming:
All members were in band el estorbo but had to sever ties due to lack of dedication of two other members so we decided to take on a new stlye as a three piece( fusion of hardcore raw melodic punk at times) with Bubba on the drums Milo on bass Davey on guitar w the split vocals with milo respectively.

What are your lyrics about?
Lyrics are collection of fictional and non fictional stories based on war, veterans, vices, schizophrenia, or fixation of police state. Also the last tape and future 7in are cowboy desperado themed or related in that Wild West anything goes type of setting.

How would you describe your sound?
Heavily influenced by raw melodic sounding hardcore with a Dbeat swing to it. Think spaniard hardcore 80s punk for vocals And riffs

What’s in the future for this band?
We’ve taken out one basement tape with AgitProp, two Demo tapes on our own label (Ruidos Subterraneo) and we are currently putting together 8 songs for a future 7in and a tape release with whatever doesn’t make it to the 7in. We’ve gotten to play NYCs latino punk fest, AZs desert destroyer and various trips along the california scene from bakersfield oakland redlands and all over the LA and Orange county.

DaudyflinLogoBand name:
Dauðyflin

Fall of 2015 in Reykjavík.

Reason for forming:
Three of us have another band, Börn, which had to take a break. Also Reykjavík had no pogo friendly bands.

Hatred. Daydreams of physically smashing the patriarchy. Pretending we’re tough enough to beat the shit out of fencewalkers.

How would you describe your sound?
Dark hardcore punk pogo party music.

Our tape will be out in a few weeks. Then hopefully we’ll do a 7″ or something in the summer plus some shows in mainland Europe.
