While there’s sadly a plethora of formerly interesting bands now attempting to appeal to the lowest common denominator via lazy songwriting and lack of inspiration, there’s plenty of exciting acts that are rising from their local scenes to tour with known quantities. Some, like Knocked Loose, seemingly did so overnight – while others, like Code Orange, took more of a slow burning route to get nominated for Grammy awards.
No matter which way you slice it, if you’re a fan of hardcore, metalcore, grindcore, or really any heavy music subgenre, there’s plenty of exciting acts coming around. On this first edition of Notes From Underground, we’re bringing you the best the underground has to offer. Strap yourselves in and discover something new today.
Time & Space, the 2nd full-length from hardcore band Turnstile, proves that the genre is at its best when the drums are loud and the sing-a-longs are catchy AF. This is the quintessential hardcore album that is pure fun, and doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Baltimore, MD Hardcore band TURNSTILE have proven their dedication to the 90s by announcing that they will be performing LIVE at Nickelodeon Studios in Hollywood, CA on May 13th. They will be performing a cover set full of zany 90s Nickelodeon cartoon theme songs! Check out the flyer below & make sure you bring your frosted tips, pooka shell necklaces & chain wallets. Better be ready to stage dive, pogo, and keep that nonstop feeling going when they cover the Rocket Power theme song! Unannounced support will be provided from hardcore bands Figure It Out, Double Dare, and a special set by Young Thug performing Slime Season 3 in its entirety.
