NEWS: Band Of Bastards prepare to erase…

By lifers for lifers, Band Of Bastards are a Hardcore Punk outfit with a list of current and former bands longer than your forearm including …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Sparta, Markov, Black Books, We’ll Go Machete and Glass Shadows. Hailing from Austin Texas they’re set to drop a debut album of twelve cuts of raw intensity in “Delete. Repeat.” on 23rd July recorded by Charles Godfrey of Scary American Recordings (Swans, Black Angels, Cannibal Corpse) and have given us both “Division” and “Can’t Ya Crawl” as a pair of warning shots.

Commenting on the meaning behind “Division” guitarist Andrew Leeper says: “The divide these days is real and everybody feels it. Don’t know how it gets better but turning off the TV sure as shit couldn’t hurt.”

He adds about “Can’t Ya Crawl”: “Writing an album during lockdown felt like we were always waiting for the next shoe to drop. Each news cycle was more dire than the one before. There was something weird in the air that felt like it was all spinning out of control. At some point you gotta embrace the chaos, step into the unknown and hope for the best.”
