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.

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.

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.

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.

Date & location formed:

Reason for forming:
No reason why.
