Washington DC’s noisiest punks, LOUD BOYZ (interviewed for IDIOTEQ in June), have fittingly teamed with Noisey magazine to stream their absolutely raging debut full length, Tough Love, Hard Feelings, due out July 10th from Cricket Cemetery Records. Though they specialize in short blasts of Keith Morris inspired aggression, Loud Boyz have managed to sneak more than a few hooks into the album. Noisey described the mischief-fueled music saying, “each song is relatively lean in song length, packing in as much fun and energy possible in what they work with. If you want something to skateboard to, burn your school to, anything that will get you in trouble.”
Tough Love, Hard Feelings is available for pre-order now. The band will be appearing live throughout 2015 in support of the album, including taking their raucous show to Raleigh, NC for Hopscotch Music Festival.
Having only existed as a band for a little over a year, Loud Boyz have quickly become an incredibly buzzed about band in the mecca of punk rock music that is Washington DC. With varied backgrounds as punk eclectics, artists, and musicians, Loud Boyz‘s Kenny Brown, Rory Sheridan, Devin Cassidy, Alex Anderson, and Mitchell West have fused their collective arty, noisy, weirdness to create a mix of hardcore punk and garage music that is so raw and unpredictable that it’s abundantly clear the band intend to shake things up.
After releasing a two song single last year, and sharing the stage with the likes of The Buzzcocks, Coliseum, United Nations, and Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg With Andrew WK, the band is ready to unleash their debut full length, Tough Love, Hard Feelings, on up-and-coming DC label, Cricket Cemetery Records. Loud Boyz may be new, but its members are no strangers to the hardcore punk scene, having played in bands such as Warchild, Rattler, and New Rock Church of Fire. By merging the most prominent elements of their past projects, Loud Boyz have unearthed a rowdy collision of punk, hardcore, and garage rock that makes heads bang with its sonic bite, but has more than a few hooks amongst the aggression.
