Hot Coffin

(Milwaukee, WI )

Way back in early 2013, the quartet loudly announced its presence with LAW, a 10-song introduction rife with blistering, no-nonsense rock and roll stacked atop the coarse sneer of then-singer Sean Williamson. After three years and one sizable substitution, Hot Coffin is back, better, and more brutal than ever with its self-titled follow-up, and first release with new singer Chris Chuzles (ex-Disguised As Birds) at the helm.
From the opening salvo of “Whistle, Hawk & Spit” to the driving conclusion of up-tempo album-ender “Ass To Ass,” Chuzles’ menacing rasp coalesces with pummeling percussion and angular, atmospheric guitar—both provided by a backing cast that boasts current and former members of Since By Man, Red Knife Lottery and Whips — to forge eight earnest, gimmick-free rock songs you’ll pine to hear live… with ear plugs in.

Reviers

(Chicago, IL )

Like the best rock music from the Pacific Northwest, the sound of Reivers is somewhat overcast and lacking in just the right amount of vitamin D. Bright light comes from Erin Armstrong’s high energy vocals - I love it when she boldly sends a major tone soaring over the band’s minor tone muscle and murk. Thank you Chicago for birthing this sonic baby - the rest of us should be listening to it grow.
-Stephen Brodsky (Cave In/Mutoid Man)
