Imploders. Toronto.

Another Covid startup band. Another crucial 2020's E.P. Was stoked when these mutts sent this session over to me and could not, would not say "nah".

It's not hard to draw the lines of influence, Los Angeles 1980 might be the simplest but there's a big dose of Midwest sass in here and that's the way we like it.

After you've bit your tongue off in sheer unbridled excitement, you can start gnawing at your wrists in manic anticipation for the LP they're currently writing. Shit rips!


Our take: Debut release from this new Toronto band on the (West Coast) Canadian label Neon Taste. The sound is fast and snotty hardcore punk / punky hardcore with short songs and brisk tempos. I hear a lot of Angry Samoans and Circle Jerks in Imploders’ sound. Like those bands, Imploders sound liked they’re amped up on stimulants, but rather than getting violent, they get wired and antsy. Also, like those bands, there’s a rock and roll / classic punk approach to the guitar riffs, while the rhythm section blazes like a hardcore band. Fans of Career Suicide and the Carbonas will also be primed to love this. Five ripping, catchy tracks and I hear there’s already an LP in the works. Sign me up for that too!
