Jack Terricloth of World/Inferno Friendship Society at Hallowmas 2016.

The World/Inferno Friendship Society is more like a punk circus than it is a band, and Jack Terricloth has been the unquestioned ringleader for more than twenty years. It’s hard to believe that a sound so bizarre has endured for more than two decades, especially among the New York punk scene which has very little tolerance for nuance. But WIFS has carved out their niche in the Big Apple with a mix of otherworldly talent and theatrical pageantry unmatched by any of their contemporaries.

The group has truly graduated some greats, like Brian Viglione of the Dresden Dolls, Yula Beeri, and Franz Nicolay (to name just a few). But no matter who they have to replace, they continue to bring the same level of tenacity, talent, and showmanship, due in large part to their diabolical leader Mr. Terricloth.

WIFS has an imminent big-time show at one of Brooklyn’s up-and-coming punk venues, Brooklyn Bazaar, and they are working tirelessly on their new record. But preparatory to unleashing their 13-piece carnival of horrors onto New York, Jack Terricloth sat down with Dying Scene to talk about the new record, how he hopes to one day reunite with Sly Stone, and meeting the members of Leftover Crack through their mutual drug dealer.

World/Inferno Friendship Society to headline PunkNews Summer Soiree

If you’re going to be in Philadelphia on August 12th, be sure to pack your fanciest pants for the PunkNews Summer Soiree. World/Inferno Friendship Society will be headlining, with Posers, Crazy and the Brains, and Pushin’ It 2 the Limit supporting.

Along with live music, there will be punk trivia, a dating game, goodie bags, and cassettes because some of you are apparently too young to remember what a terrible format that was.

Seriously though, imagine paying for an album and it just breaks while you’re rewinding it.

Rewinding was a thing you used to have to do when your music or video got to the end. Instead of, you know, hitting a button or dropping a needle in a different location, you ran your dainty media at a high speed and prayed to sweet zombie Jesus that the tape wouldn’t snap.

Cassettes suck.

But this show won’t suck, so you should check it out if you’re in Philly in mid-August!

letlive. announce breakup

letlive. have sadly announced they will be ceasing activities as a band, citing personal differences. The band explained:

In the summer of 2002 this thing we call “letlive.” began in a garage in a small suburb of Los Angeles with one goal in mind. Above all else, letlive. was meant to be an idea not an outfit. This idea took its roots in honesty, humility, and finding an ironic strength in vulnerability. This is how it all began and it must end in the same fashion.

We have been granted opportunities and experiences beyond anything we could have ever imagined and we are well aware that none of the aforementioned would be possible without you. Your support, investments, and genuine belief have been nothing short of inspiring which is what allowed us to create these works while enduring the unsettling ebb and flow of career musicianship. With this in mind we would like to take this time to exhibit said transparency and explain that over time a divergence in views and aims has developed within the camp- and, for the moment, the impact that has on letlive. as a group is that there will be no further activity for the foreseeable future. We want to thank every single person that we were privileged enough to make a connection with through this vessel. We will no longer write the soundtrack, but the most important element, the idea, will continue as long as you allow it to. You are and always will be letlive.

All ll.ove,
Jason Aalon Butler, Loniel Robinson, Ryan Johnson, & Jeffrey Sahyoun
