Beasts Of No Nation Bio:
Formed from long-time friends, and D.C. punk veterans, Beasts Of No Nation have taken the long road to their first show in the hometown where they each cut their musical teeth. "We've been doing this band in various stages for seven years, since Mike (Beasts' lead guitarist, also of Darkest Hour) approached Kevin (Beasts' bassist, Majority Rule / Trial By Fire) and I to do it," recalls vocalist / guitarist Jason Yawn (formerly of Trial By Fire). He adds, "We wanted to make sure we did it the right way without allowing our individual obligations get in the way of us creating something we were proud of. We believe in it, and to see it come to fruition is really exciting." The "it" is a quartet that believes in the lawlessness of punk's original intention. Yawn says, "If we are calling it like we see it, and writing stuff that turns us on musically, then we are living that mission." Adding, "Hopefully others out there will connect with what we're doing on some level."
That above mentioned "MISSION" can be traced throughout Yawn’s Lyrics. Drummer Andrew Black (Formerly of the Explosion) explains “Its refreshing seeing a songwriter point out all of the ways in which people have been marginalized to different degrees by their own leadership. It’s even more refreshing to feel that injustice and to want to do something about it. That is what Yawn has achieved with his words.”
UNSIGNED AND ON THE CUSP OF FINISHING THEIR SELF-PRODUCED FIRST FULL-LENGTH RECORD BEASTS ARE ANXIOUS TO TAKE THEIR SOUND TO THE STAGE.
