"You can tell he's a bassist by trade, as the rhythmic imperative on his self-titled debut hardly ever lets up; it's dialed into mosh-pit velocity while driving songs with metallic edges (the twinned lead guitars of "Mountain," for example) into controlled bursts of frenzy." - NPR Music Meatbodies, the project of Los Angeles-bred Chad Ubovich, will release their self-titled, debut album next week on In The Red. Unabashed, unrestrained, beautiful and strange, Meatbodies proves Ubovich can carry a rock band, in addition to dominating on bass with FUZZ and guitar with Mikal Cronin. The album is available to stream in its entirety now via NPR Music's "First Listen." Meatbodies -- Chad Ubovich (guitar), Patrick Nolan (guitar), Ryan Moutinho (drums), Killian LeDuke (bass) -- are touring North America for the next two months. All dates are below.

Toronto quartet Greys have debuted a new video for their song "Adderall" via Cracked Magazine, just in time for their October European and UK run.  The next four weeks see the band supporting Death From Above 1979 as well as playing a series of headline dates and appearances at Primavera Club, Iceland Airwaves Festival, and Simple Things Festival (all tour dates below). The band released their debut full-length If Anything in June via Carpark/Buzz Records. 
 

After the release of three EPs in as many years (2011's Ultra Sorta, 2012's Easy Listeningand 2013's Drift), If Anything sees Greys scraping raw the influences of their punk heros, bands such as Drive Like Jehu, Shellac, and Unwound, combining them with a dirty tapestry of angular guitar textures and irregular rhythms that propel the album's 11 tracks forward at breakneck speed.  The band writes loud rock, but it's also some of the poppiest music that's ever been allowed to lay claim to such a title.
 

Praise for Greys:
"Most impressive... [their] combination of explosive distortion and harsh but pretty melodies suggested a band who helped invent the genre, not one exploring it 30 years after its birth." -LA Times

"With feedback-saturated guitars, catchy melodies, and the sore-throat yowls of frontman Shehzaad Jiwani, Greys sound like lost transmissions from the underground punk scene" -Rolling Stone

"It’s a masculine sound, a mean sound; it’s propulsive, pummeling, and often pretty exhilarating." -Stereogum
