DRIFTOFF (members of Junius/Rosetta/City of Ships/Superblonde) + Starve20.30 / € 8 Tickets
Driftoff is a rock band from New York City that eschews the different genres of post-hardcore and rock into one killer blend. The band is set to release their new EP Modern Fear this October Their new song “Straphanger” is a goddamn journey through any kind of influence you might want to hear in a band. It’s a near seven minute course in showing you the details of why Driftoff is the band you need to know. The song is heavy and gripping, no doubt, but its the moments of melody and and refrain that put everything together. The tones of the guitars reflect hints of Deftones or Handsome influence, but go above and beyond to make it its own heavy, crushing entity. It curates all of those influences masterfully, making a piece of music that’s killer and cool without being reliant on nostalgia to prop itself up.
Modern Fear is set for an October 30th release on Science of Silence (US), & Golden Antenna Records (Europe/UK).
Voorprogramma komt van Starve. Voor het gemak ook maar even in het Anglais.
Starve is a Dutch metal band with its roots firmly in sludge metal, hardcore and punk.
In June of 2015 a new full-length record ‘Machine Nation’ was released through the newly resurrected Wrath of Time Records in collaboration with Badger Records. It includes elements of 90s hardcore, metal and grunge, drawing inspiration from the kind of music the members of the band grew up with.
After releasing a demo early in 2010 and playing a variety of shows, the debut full length record ‘Wasteland’ was recorded during the blistering heat of the summer of the same year. This LP was released by Badger Records on September 17, 2010 and was followed by several individual shows and short tours throughout the rest of the year. In 2011 Starve cranked up the volume to ’11, played yet more shows in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the UK and released a 7” to follow their debut LP. ‘Black Sludge, White Sludge’ was officially released on the 9th of September in a musky cellar in Leipzig. A split 12″ with fellow Dutch band Terzij de Horde was released in September of 2012 and a split 7” with Belgian mincecore legends Agathocles was released in February 2013.
