Ex-Breathers play straightforward hardcore punk songs that pound their way through 60 seconds or less while coupling technical dexterity with raw pandemonium. The Tallahassee band are known for their brutal live shows — bassist Jack once crowd-surfed in his underwear with a bloodied face without missing a beat — but that sense of reckless mayhem is nearly as tangible in tracks like “Flowers.” Screeching guitars prepare you for the heavy, deranged riffs to follow, and soon Ex-Breathers’ head-bashing gang vocals are barking to air their grievances about senseless small talk. Exbx is out October 7th on Texas Is Funny and you can pre-order their limited edition cassette here!
