Here’s a treat: some really great straight-forward pop punk out of Belfast the likes of Descendents, Screeching Weasel, and Millencolin. No Matter has a new 8-track EP on the way August 2 via Umlaut Records (their second Umlaut release) and man, is it a smasher! It’s full of witty lyricism, harmonizing vocals and that back-to-basics no-hesitation punk rock playing that has consistently drawn the faithful back to those three trusty chords. “What’s the point in doing anything if nothing’s worth the while. Is it ok just to crack up when it’s hard to crack a smile?” – That’s just a sample of the ample head-turning smile inducing phrases you may catch yourself repeating throughout the day after listening to this album
Excess Baggage is up for grabs here ,with Cd + T-Shirt bundles available as well. You can stream Excess Baggage in it’s entirety below, two-days early and exclusively on-site for no other reason than that we love you. Excess Baggage is a total banger that’s going to take you on a nice little trip you can listen to on repeat again and again. I don’t want to call this No Matter’s Dookie for fear it might jinx them, but somebody somewhere definitely took a shit and something absolutely beautiful popped out.
Be sure to catch No Matter at Punk Rock Holiday in Slovenia which they will be visiting for the second time. Previously, No Matter has also toured Europe, made a stop at Pouzza, and played with Anti Flag, Gnarwolves, RVIVR and D.O.A.
