nosebleed band logo

Band name:
NOSEBLEED
Valentina-vox, Z-guitar, Marcus-bass, Ian-drums.

Date & location formed:
The band had been an idea since early 2015 between Z and V, coming into fruition during the tail-end of 2015 when Marcus and Ian joined. We’ve been playing shows since the Fall/Winter of that year. We all live in Richmond, VA.

Reason for forming:
We’re all friends and have known each other for a while through hardcore/punk shows in Richmond, and we wanted to start a new band. A lot of great new bands are coming out of Richmond, and we all want to be involved in what’s currently going on.

What are your lyrics about?
Anger, social and subcultural disenchantment, rejecting oppressive standards, depression, despair, revenge.

tumbas band Logo

Band name:
TUMBAS

Date & location formed:
2015 in Bogotá, Colombia.

Reason for forming:
We wanted to create a band that made something different from the others and something we really enjoyed as friends.

What are your lyrics about?
About what we are feeling by the time we write them, our worldview and what we want to take off our chests.

How would you describe your sound?
A mixture of our members’ tastes: 80’s punk, post-punk, dark punk, deathrock.

What’s in the future for this band?
We want to continue doing what we love, playing the music we like and creating new sound. We also hope to play in other countries.

Band name:
LEATHER JACUZZI

Date & location formed:
Formed in Calgary, AB Canada in June of 2016, with our tape (Monsters, Narcs and Idiots) being written, recorded and released in time for our first show at the end of July 2016. It’s been a real goddamned whirlwind.

Reason for forming:
Three of the four members live in Calgary and do time in more established acts: Craig (guitar) is the front man for Feel Alright; Brady (bass) holds the same position in The Mandates; and Michael (drums) plays in so many bands it’s hard to keep track, but most notably Blü Shorts and Gawker. Sarah (vocals) lives in Toronto and only had the summer to hang out, and this band is essentially all about hanging out. When you have 6 weeks to do something, it can be way easier to motivate yourself to get together and punch out as much as possible. We also like to party, and this was an excellent way to do that.

What are your lyrics about?
Piss tasting, an alternate reality where prohibition never ended, trying to relax, fucking. You know. Normal, every day life.

How would you describe your sound?
Definitely influenced by disaffected young men, most notably Angry Samoans and Zero Boys, but also kind of shitting on that. It can be difficult to take that early macho hardcore stuff seriously, but the songs sound real cool so why not rip on it a bit?

What’s in the future for this band?
We’re going to write and record a new album in December, which will be called “Slander, Lies and Soda.” Planet of the Tapes is also going to put out a much larger run of our first tape, and that should be coming together this fall. It’s up for free on our bandcamp right now. Maybe we’ll even make some fuckin’ t-shirts or something.

Band name:
NACHTHEXEN

Date & location formed:
August 2015, Sheffield, Audacious Art Experiment.

Reason for forming:
Most of us have played in other bands but wanted to make music with close friends that was different to what’s around in Sheffield at the moment.

Disco punk!

What’s in the future for this band?
We’ve just come back from tour and are getting excited to start writing for a longer release

Band name:
FAZE

Date & location formed:
The beginning of 2016, Winter in Montreal.

Reason for forming:
Just to have a fresh start from all the old stuff we had been working on… and to dance…

What are your lyrics about?
Stress, stress management, the lack of ability to manage stress, and anxiety.

How would you describe your sound?
We’re all into different stuff… so it kind of all comes together into this loud delayed mix of aggressive weird post gnar noise psych punk?

What’s in the future for this band?
Just to play everywhere we can, and to keep writing new stuff. Who knows… maybe one day we’ll get a smoke machine…

unnamed

Band name:
PANDEMIX

Date & location formed:
Boston, MA, January 2016.

Reason for forming:
I (Shannon) met Tommy in 2007 at a Pist reunion gig and knew we would start a band together someday. He had a dread hawk, I had daisy dukes with a Charles Bronson patch on the butt.

What are your lyrics about?
The paranoia of inhabiting a social world crumbling under the weight of consumer commodification. Medical debt. Mental health. The constant emotional and psychological violence endemic to being a woman. How even when white folks attempt to destabilize white supremacy, we continue to benefit from it.

How would you describe your sound?
Hardcore/peace punk.

bleeders band logo

Band name:
BLEEDERS

Date & location formed:
Winter 2015 in Kutztown, PA.

Reason for forming:
A little while after Matt and Kay dissolved their previous band, I heard them jamming in the basement of the house we were renting together at the time. I figured it’d be fun to sing in a dumb band with my dumb friends.

What are your lyrics about?
Sexual predators, abusers, mansplainers, sexual sadists, narcissists–mostly misogynists I’ve met, and so-called “progressive” scumbags with ulterior motives. But we also have some happy(ish) songs in the works about supporting gay men, destigmatizing menstruation, and destigmatizing abortion.

How would you describe your sound?
We originally had more of a Z-beat sound, but now we’re leaning more towards gash rock/melodic boobcore.

What’s in the future for this band?
We’re recording all of our songs in the next few weeks. At this point, we now have a bassist and a second drummer, so the new and improved versions of the old shit will be uploaded to our bandcamp along with our new tracks. Gonna make some tapes, play some shows, continue bangin’ out hits, et cetera.
