"Over the past decade, Baltimore’s Multicult have earned their reputation as one of this era’s best and most consistent noise rock bands. Set to release their fifth album, 'Simultaneity Now,' on August 2nd via Learning Curve Records, the band remain of the best and brightest. Pushing the noise rock framework in new directions with a relaxed sonic freedom and a deeper understanding of their own goals, the album sounds as vital as ever."

"Noise rock, as a genre, provides a home for a cadre of secretly virtuoso musicians. The focus isn’t on shredding and pyrotechnic playing as much as maneuvering through strange time signatures and a thorough command of instrumental sounds and textures... This is certainly the case with Baltimore-based trio Multicult. Consisting of Nick Skrobisz of The Wayward on guitar and vocals, Rebecca Burchette (ex-Fight Amp) on bass, and Jake Cregger of Triac and Backslider on drums, the trio bring a wealth of talent and experience to bear on their fifth full-length, 'Simultaneity Now,' due out August 2 via Learning Curve Records."

"With the new 'Simultaneity Now' out on Friday August 2, Multicult provide yet another reason to love Baltimore."
–Scene Point Blank

"'Simultaneity Now,' the band’s fifth album, extends the trio’s streak of crafting the finest updates on the rattling noise-rock Touch & Go and Amphetamine-Reptile used to put out, spiked with the rhythmic pummel of 1980s industrial throb... And five albums in, Multicult’s remarkable consistency has resulted in a world-building sonic landscape all its own. Skrobisz’s lyrics feel intentionally difficult to make out, a scream struggling to be heard amid the actual and virtual noise overcrowding our headspaces. Rhythmically, the band straddles metal’s heaviness and dance music’s pulsating tempos, and such steely combinations often result in a futuristic Birthday Party-ish primal scream.
