PLAQUE MARKS + BrooklynVegan

"The most primitive and feral elements of its style... John Bonham kick tone, smashed-to-shit vocal distortion, gravel-throated bass tone and a couple guitars that sound like they're being picked with glass shards... Cruelly effective."

"Rising Philly noise rock royalty Plaque Marks... Nasty in all the right ways."

"Their sound takes cues from the style Unsane helped define."

Philly noise-rock all-stars Plaque Marks have unleashed new song "Oregon Chem-Trail" upon the world today. An absolute banger of the rawest, most caustic variety, "Oregon Chem-Trail" appears on the band's upcoming debut EP, Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship, out October 27th on Learning Curve Records.

Listen, here:

The self-proclaimed "stain on the smile of the Philadelphia music scene," Plaque Marks comprises members of Creepoid, Fight Amp, Ecstatic Vision, and The Powder Room. Caveman drumming, tooth-rattling bass, painfully distorted guitars, and buried yells are the elements at play, and on Anxiety Driven Nervous Worship they sound like they were recorded with one lone mic, hanging from a noose in a Philly warehouse. 

The band hits the road with none other than Unsane for a cross-country trek in November and December.
