MICROWAVES + Dangerous Minds

“For about 18 years, Pittsburgh, PA’s Microwaves have been melting faces with an aggressively mathy, aggressively tricky, just plain aggressive noise rock attack that variously or simultaneously recalls Voivod, technical death metal, prog, and Waves No- and New-, played with an emphasis on chaos and catharsis, as easily evoking the Load Records catalog as King Crimson.”
-Dangerous Minds

Stream the new track, Love Catheter, via Dangerous Minds, here.

Of innumerable bands that traffic in dissonance, the musick of Pittsburgh, PA’s Microwaves shears clean and hot as an oxy-lance through the defenses of even the most cynical noise rock aficionado. The trio plies a no-wave/prog-thrash scree that evokes the doings of today’s renegade wetware punks who shove glass-sheathed RFID chips and rare-earth magnets into fresh incisions - dimensions away from the bluesy shot-and-beer heartland rock of their local bar scene.

Microwaves’ newest LP, Via Weightlessness, is being released by Three One G Records on September 28th. It will be available on black vinyl as well as digitally via iTunes. Preorder here.
