“As we’re sure most of you are very well aware, working a dead-end job is one of the shittiest and most life-draining things anybody can experience. Be it a server, a parking attendant or a coffee barista, getting caught up in life’s hamster ball of working just to get by is something we definitely don’t recommend. Sharing this same notion is Brooklyn post-punk outfit Geometers with their gritty and hot-blooded single “Schematic” – which, we’re extremely excited to bring you the exclusive premiere of today.”
“Brooklyn punks Geometers are a fairly new, small band, but they’ve already hooked up with some punk legends… The song [“L’appel du Vide”] kinda reminds me of Title Fight, another new-school punk band who quickly won the approval of a legend.”
-- Brooklyn Vegan
Stream the track, “Schematic,” via The Noise, here:
Brooklyn, NY’s Geometers is bassist/guitarist/vocalist Sam Wadsworth, drummer David Beale, and guitarist/vocalist Kyle Pollard. Formed in 2015 and living in a place like New York City- and particularly the rapidly populating area of Bushwick, it’s easy to get caught up in fitting in and keeping up with the current trends. Instead, this trio plays the music they must, looking to defy and redefine the post-hardcore genre much in the same way their predecessors have— influences like Fugazi, Botch, Engine Down, Q and Not U, Thrice and Shiner. Like most of these bands, Geometers may be better described as layered, or more simply loud, but able to balance their power with finesse.
Geometers’ newest LP, Pay To Live, will be released on vinyl/cd/cassette/digitally through Jetsam-Flotsam and Codependent Records on December 2nd. In an effort to empower and protect others post-election, all of the proceeds from pre-orders and the first week of sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Preorder link here.
It was recorded and mixed by J. Robbins of Jawbox (who has also produced bands such as The Dismemberment Plan, Against Me!, Murder By Death, Modern Life Is War, Braid, and Shiner, among many others) at the Magpie Cage in Baltimore, Maryland. Mastered by Dan Coutant at Sunroom Audio in NY. Album artwork created by John Cox and layout by Kyle Pollard.
