So Pitted Signs To Sub Pop, On Tour Now and Hear 'rot in hell' From 'neo'
Thu, 12 Nov 2015 14:11:40
Seattle is known as the birthplace of grunge, but the genre has always straddled punk, from the screaming distortion of Mudhoney (and stage antics to match) to Kurt Cobain's idols in the Melvins and the commercial grunge product that became known as Nirvana. Though these days the dive bars and crusty clubs that nurtured those acts are being razed for corporate condos and gastropubs, the Emerald City can still boast a few pockets where the punk spirit lives on.
Punk trio So Pitted's practice space is one; the group comprised of Jeannine Koewler, Liam Downey, and Nathan Rodriguez have apparently made so much racket there that homegrown indie label Sub Pop even took notice, recently folding them into a roster that includes Mudhoney, and once upon a time, Nirvana.
You can even get a look inside the space in the video for "rot in hell" (watch all the way to the end for how the threesome really feels about GMOs). It's a track from the band's label debut, neo, which is slated for release on February 19, 2016. Check out the tracklisting and tour dates below, and prepare yourself for an aural onslaught of pure punk power.
