"Whores. are catchy. Between the bookends of instrumental distortion and angry vocal delivery lies a trio that is clearly capable of knocking out a chorus you’ll be humming all day." ALTPRESS

“a masterfully executed, self-deprecating album that it is necessary to listen to.”

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 Helmet, Pissed Jeans, Harvey Milk and The Jesus Lizard.

Since their inception, the band has toured throughout the U.S., playing shows with Red Fang, Torche, Iron Reagan, Deafheaven, Black Tusk, 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 the second pressing. “CLEAN.” is now on its fifth 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.

We were in other bands. Now we're in this band. Soon we will all be deaf. Commercially moribund, second wave, first class, good times, bad vibes.


Child Bite

Child Bite is widely considered to be the best live band in Detroit. If your ambitions inspire you to bang your head, marvel at the complexities of composition, dissect the absurdity of language, embrace the beauty in dissonance, or, simply become terrified-- this band is proficient in the actualization of each. For years, we have watched Child Bite change, contort, and rearrange itself into the gnarly powerhouse that exists in its current period.



Born out of a combination of dirty rock and roll, stale beer and an unhealthy obsession with "Big Trouble In Little China," Columbus's Lo-Pan have been tearing up the club circuit since 2005. Lo-Pan burst onto the local scene with their locally released self-titled album back in 2006. The local buzz gave way to more national attention as bands told bands and Lo-Pan began gracing venues big and small with names like Red Giant, Devil To Pay, Torche, Saviours, Year Long Disaster, Red Fang, Valkyrie, & the Atomic Bitchwax (just to name a few). Fast forward five years and there's hardly a band worth playing with that they haven't shared a stage with.
