Born in The Queen City of Cincinnati, OH, Loudmouth is an attitude, a perspective, a way of life. Transmitted through a blend of 90s style punk with modern pop-punk overtones, Loudmouth encourages audiences to be informed, speak their mind, think independently, listen closely and speak loudly. With the absence of fear, the presence of unfiltered instinct and quite a bit of booze – you’ve got a Loudmouth party.
Not very long ago, punk rock was house-party tours funded by selling keg beer. It was DIY. It was a community. It was beautiful. Although some warriors remain, a large part of today’s music is promoted through online message boards and social media web blasts. Rather than sitting behind their computers or even worse- jumping on the “punk is dead” bandwagon, Loudmouth has injected a burly breath of life into their regional punk-rock community.
Loudmouth made a memorable live debut in October 2009 opening for ska legends Mustard Plug at the Mad Hatter (Covington, KY). Well received, the band rapidly built a local following and were quickly amongst a short list of “locals” that could headline and sell out the 400 capacity Mad Hatter.
At the same time, the band ran a punk house/DIY venue in Clifton Heights, OH: “The Loud House.” The Loud House hosted shows for hundreds of touring bands. Their “anything goes” policy complimented a bevy of epic shows while simultaneously building the Loudmouth hype. A series of debaucherous, chaotic events led to the closing and condemning of the house.
Loudmouth hit the road in 2009 and have since executed 5 regional tours, played upwards of 300 shows from Grand Rapids, MI to Tampa, FL and all in between. Notable touring accomplishments include supporting slots with NOFX, Anti-Flag, Strung Out, Tony Sly (RIP) and many more.
Fast forwarding to 2013, Loudmouth is now the band’s full time job. The band’s 4th EP, Future Boredom, is pressed on CD and Vinyl and set to be released digitally this March. You can catch Loudmouth regionally in the Spring and plans for an extended summer tour are in the works.
According to CityBeat Magazine columnist, Brian Baker, “Loudmouth has made an immediate impact locally, generating a buzz at home, on a handful of regional dates and inspiring comparisons to the early Fat Wreck Chords scene. They love what they do and whom they do it for”.
Loudmouth lives their music. Loudmouth is a community. From their first beginnings in Cincinnati to their most recent East Coast tour, Loudmouth has been genuine in their delivery. It’s catchy, angsty pop punk at its finest from the heart of the Midwest.
