"Austinites Drip-Fed pack plenty of pain and hope into 2 1/2 minutes... The hooky, hulking kind of punk hardcore that makes you listen over and over until you develop welts."
"We've just learned about Drip-Fed and they are freaking rad. They mix punk rock and post-hardcore into a mean cacophony of riffs and screams that will rattle your bones and shake your spirit. The end result is something wholly unique and beautifully fervent... Drip-Fed is a band to watch, no doubt."
"A shambolic rager... Black Flag-ish riffing, to post-hardcore screaming, to some prog-ish stunts."
Austin, Texas punkers Drip-Fed have revealed the title track off upcoming seven-inch Under the Wave Blanket, via Decibel.
A melodic-yet-savage anthem, "Under the Wave Blanket" is "the hooky, hulking kind of punk hardcore that makes you listen over and over until you develop welts," as Decibel's Shane Mehling puts it. Diamond-bright riffs, in the tradition of old gods like Greg Ginn and East Bay Ray, clash with frontman Jeffrey Blum's severely depressed vocals, setting up a tension that just devastates.
Recorded and mixed by Keith Hernandez, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell), Under the Wave Blanket will be released March 3rd on Red Flag Records.
Feb 16 - Austin, TX @ Fine Southern Gentlemen
Mar 2 - Austin, TX @ The Sidewinder - Under the Wave Blanket release show
