Nervous Curtains / We Are Hex / Bighand//Bigknife says
Indianapolis’ We Are Hex have constantly been creeping up to the verge of something bigger for far too long. Formed in 2007, their reputation grew steadily, and the excellence of their live shows grew with it. Their 2010 12” LP Hail the Goer" positively slayed, and a single released on Jack White’s Third Man label in 2011 brought them to the attention of “all the right people,” and then… nothing.

There were rumors that the guitar player had joined a cult. There were rumors of serious but unspecified health problems. And then atop all that, their studio got robbed and they were left without instruments or recording gear. No more We Are Hex. “Indefinite hiatus” was the explanation proffered.

In 2013, the reconstituted band released the “Lude Newdie Animals" single and toured again followed by 2014's "Bleach Brigade" LP.

The long shadow of goth is definitely hovering over this band, and they bring the obtuse angles of post-punk and the abrasions of ‘90s underground rock to the mix too, but you really have to hear it to get it. No description of their sound I’ve ever read or conjured has done them proper justice.
