When a band is formed with members of The Van Jets, Future Old People Are Wizards, Drums are for Parades, The Arquettes, and The Antler King, it goes without saying this combination of great musicians of diverse musical backgrounds grabs your attention. Their incredible live performances proved this band is much more than a gimmick. Dressed in white hazmat suits with white chalked faces, these artists look ghoulishly freaky. Their podium presence looks otherworldly, where weirdness is set as the norm — which is exactly and completely in line with their music. The four guardians of Dante’s inferno bring an insane blend of all types of challenging music. Kraut rock, match rock, sludge, pust punk, and noise are shaken up, and presented in insanely groovy way. If you haven’t heard or seen them yet, and you are curious, do check out the video for the track ‘Lord Sleep’ below, which is taken off their upcoming album Konark und Bonark, which will be released by 9000 Records (by Consouling Sounds) on May 11th (pre-order available here).
