Retox is set to release their third studio album Beneath California, out February 10 on Epitaph. The Los Angeles-based punk band currently consists of Justin Pearson (The Locust, Head Wound City, All Leather, Swing Kids), Michael Crain (Festival of Dead Deer, Kill the Capulets), Brian Evans, and Keith Hendriksen (Kill the Capulets, Virginia Reed). Since their conception in 2011, they have toured with similarly like-minded acts such as Melt-Banana, Tomahawk, OFF!, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Trash Talk. Retox is a band that aims to simultaneously reflect and defy, using music as a way of holding a broken mirror to the rest of us, exposing different pieces of our own fucked up realities, and forcing the acknowledgement of the inevitable self-imposed apocalypse we are creating for ourselves. -- Formed in 2010, Atlanta, Ga. noise merchants, WHORES., have quickly become infamous, thanks to their crushing live shows and no-holds-barred punk rock attitude. The band signed to Brutal Panda Records in 2011 to unleash their ferocious debut, "RUINER." Recorded at The Factory in Atlanta, "RUINER." features five crushingly heavy tracks of pissed-off noise rock for fans of Nirvana, (the) Melvins, Helmet, Pissed Jeans, Harvey Milk and The Jesus Lizard. Since their inception, the band has toured throughout the U.S., playing shows with Torche, Iron Reagan, Deafheaven, Floor, Retox, Kylesa, The Atlas Moth, Zozobra, Royal Thunder, Fight Amp, Lo Pan, Coliseum, Obliterations and many others. In late 2013, WHORES. released their highly anticipated follow-up, "CLEAN." Recorded by Ryan Boesch (Helmet, Tomahawk, Fu Manchu, Melvins), the record sold out within a month, prompting the band to quickly release a second pressing. "CLEAN." is now on its third pressing. The band has garnered much attention as one of the best new acts in the noise rock scene. Spin Magazine voted WHORES. as one of the "must-see" bands at the 2014 SXSW and named "CLEAN." in the top 10 of their 20 Best Metal Albums of 2013.
