QUITS + BrooklynVegan

BrooklynVegan has premiered the music video for Quits' song "Worm Burden," off the band's self-titled debut album.
Tense and noisy, Quits emerges from Denver, Colorado with a sound in the vein of Metz, or forebears like Drive Like Jehu and Circus Lupus. As BrooklynVegan puts it, "it’s a crushing, attitude-filled blend of noise rock and post-hardcore in the AmRep/Touch & Go tradition."

According to the band: “Quits formed while Denver was exploding with entrepreneurs and young money. Rent prices skyrocketed and an influx of pretty people disrupted our artist community that we had taken for granted. It's become increasingly tough to afford to live while exploring creative endeavors. Then, the Ghost Ship fire happened and DIY spots everywhere were shut down overnight. With songs titled 'Boom Town,' 'Debt Rats,' '8 Cranes,' and 'The Measure,' we delve into these topics."

While the track “Worm Burden” aligns with this tone, the video appears somewhat lighthearted by contrast, featuring an unlikely star in the portrait of a wild-haired pup.

The band’s self-titled debut album will be released as a limited edition cassette on December 14th via Sleeping Giant Glossolalia, home to music by artists such as Multicult, Vaz, Microwaves, and Martin Bisi. The album was recorded by Bart McCrorey at Crash Pad Studio in Denver. Buy cassette and digital, here:

Quits' newest member, bassist Neil Keener who joined after the album recording, is a member of Planes Mistaken For Stars and Wovenhand.
