NO PROBLEM + VOIGHT KAMPFF
NO PROBLEM (Can)
"This is music for maladjusted adults who are too old to be able to relate to teenage problems, but whose feelings of alienation have in no way withered with age, and are looking for something that musically and lyrically captures the frustration of adult punk life in the same way that, say, so many ADOLESCENTS songs are a product of teen angst. One of my favorite things in the world is bands effectively fusing hardcore with catchy yet aggressive or paranoid melody, as bands like SOCIAL CIRCKLE and DEEP SLEEP have done in recent years." - MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL
VOIGHT KAMPFF (USA)
Voight-Kampff began as Run Down in 2005 when Sulier (MO.) and Swanson-White (MN.) came together due to a shared love of darker moodier punk. After both had been in hardcore bands they decided to try something a little weirder. A 2 song 45 was done after passing songs back and forth and was belatedly released in 2012 on Baltimore’s Firestarter Records. At this point the songs were already written for their debut full-length and
the two decided to make a clean break from RD with a name change and stripped down format which would involve only the two of them for recording purposes. VK has played roughly a show a year since 07 recruiting different friends to flesh out live line-ups including Doom
Town’s Ashley Hohman and Tom Valli, Bryan Clarkson and Shaun Morrissey from The Humanoids, Matty Coonfield of Bug Chaser and Tone Rodent, Phil
Schwarz of Rock Bottom Records, Ted Howard of the 86’ed, and Brad Stiffler of Condominium. The duo is currently at work writing for their second LP and has plans to finally tour and increase their activities.
