"Nasty, Brutish and Short" - Half Dead

Release Date: September 15, 2023 Record Label: Unsigned Release Type: LPBandcamp Link: Listen on Bandcamp

A heavy-hitting punk band with roots in early American Hardcore and 90s noise, Half Dead play hard, fast, and pissed. They deal in bludgeoning rhythms, scorching guitar riffs and powerful vocals courtesy of frontperson Hillary Shields, whose lyrics delve into themes of self-destruction and social injustice.
After releasing their debut EP Binch in 2022, the band are ready to put out their follow-up full-length, Nasty Brutish and Short, in September 2023. 22 minutes of raw, exposed nerves and high gain, the new record sees the band finding their sound, and then blasting it open with fuzzed out noise, heavy grooves, and trashy drums.
