Bandages: All Extreme Measures b/w Tokyo Carwash 7"
The fourth entry in Sorry State’s North Carolina singles series is the debut single from Bandages. A Raleigh supergroup of sorts, Bandages includes members from bands like Double Negative, Shoxx (NYC), Future Binds, and many, many others. Of those bands, Double Negative and Shoxx are probably the closest points of comparison as the huge, metallic sound and general attitude of misanthropy and ugliness carries over from those bands. However, Bandages aren’t your standard hardcore band, but rather a twisting, writhing, heavy, yet agile beast with a sound all their own. Arrestingly original, this is a band made for fans of heavy music that are too smart for their own good but too dumb to quit. Limited to 300 copies.
