Halifax post-hardcore band BOTFLY is partnering with No Funeral Records for the release of multiple projects to be announced in 2021. To commemorate this partnership they have collaborated on a sweater, available to order now, and released a music video for the song “Dissassociate” originally released on No Funeral’s “compilation 2”.
Through 2019-2021 Botfly has been constantly writing new material, with new addition Alex Babineau (Guitar/Vocals), the bulk of it being shelved due to COVID19. As a band that is known for their live performances, it seemed wrong to release new music during the height of the pandemic. They’re now ready to unleash it on the world.
Close friends, and previous collaborators No Funeral Records hopped on board to help facilitate this library of music as proper releases. As a label very tapped in to the scene Botfly lives in, it is the perfect pairing.
In the winter of 2021, Botfly shot a music video for “Dissassociate” that was originally featured on No Funeral’s “compilation 2” which was the beginning of this wave of the partnership. “Dissassociate” is a departure from the sound the band is known for. It finds them opting for a jolt of adrenaline influenced by early 2000’s melodic hardcore, while steeping it in their own brand of abrasive noise-rock.
To celebrate this new partnership Botfly & No Funeral have collaborated on a sweater design that is now available for order in the No Funeral webstore.
Originally formed in 2013, Botfly set out to pull from the energy of the noise rock scene of the 90’s, while still pulling a fresh contemporary spin to the style. Since the release of their debut LP, Botfly has spent their time touring North America playing basements, clubs, and festivals.
No Funeral Records is a prominent indie label in the underground hardcore/metal scene in North America. Based out of Cambridge, ON, they have cultivated a large, loyal fan base through releasing music from aggressive, experimental bands across the world. Most notably releasing projects for the world renowned japanese noise project “Merzbow”. They aspire to release music that pushes the envelope, while being highly emotional, leaving a lasting impact on the greater scene.
