New band. Two members live in NYC, the other two are scattered across the rest of the state. Hardcore punk FFO of hardcore punk. Members of other bands past and present. They played their first show last night, there are demo tapes and Katorga Works will be distro-ing a bunch in the near future.

Here's a link to download the full demo that I hope works just fine. The files are WAVs cuz that's all I got:

The band won't say it, but it's current and former members of Warthog, CREEM, Nuclear Spring, Nomos, etc.

Man just when I keep thinking enough is enough with all of these new NYC bands, the quality just keeps coming. Awesome demo.
