Cleveland’s leading sons of deliciously negative hardcore, Fuck You Pay Me, recently blasted through Philly’s Kung Fu Necktie venue with an eclectic cast of support; Thulsa Doom, Pulling Punches, and Die Choking courtesy of Philly Hardcore Shows.
FYPM is embarking on a maxed-out 2015 with multiple studio efforts looming, live dates a plenty, and a locked performance at this years ultra-dense This Is Hardcore Fest in Philly. First up- Public Disgrace LP on Deep Six Records is reportedly ‘coming soon’. A newly re-recorded Dumbed Down LP via Tankcrimes is right behind it with a cherry on top being FYPM/To The Point split 7” on Six Weeks Records. Newbs. Sit back. 2015 is all about FYPM. Consider this your late pass.
Comprised of music veterans from Philly to NYC Thulsa Doom continually bring the thunder. Always armed with a rash of limited, fetish-worthy vinyl (you missed out if didn’t get yourself a copy of limited “Queen Of Punk” LP) the veterans are still on fire. The band is scheduled to hit Cruststock on June 26th along with Antisect, Capitalist Causalities and slew of crust and grind mainstays.
Philly’s grindcore, single-foot hyper-blast purveyors, Die Choking are fresh out of Studio 4 with the renowned engineer Will Yip, having recently laid down a debut LP entitled III. III will follow two 2014 EPs that saw light via The Compound Records entitled I & II respectively. III features a battering of high-octane grindcore mixed with a hardcore punk, thrash and metal underbelly at breakneck speeds and peppered elements of powerviolence. III is scheduled to drop in Fall with label details pending. You can check out some studio teasers here.
Philly pop punk act Pulling Punches rounded out the evening with a solid mix of rock and punk as the band recently entered the studio to begin work on an untitled new album. Pulling Punches recently issued a video update via DyingScene Mag offering an inside lookat the band’s writing process that can be scoped here.
