Tiny Engines welcomed Direct Effect to their roster earlier this year and will release the band’s debut full-length, Sunburn, in the Winter of 2014. You can stream a brand new song, “Yo No Quiero”, on Brooklyn Veganright now. The LP will follow up the band’s 2011 debut 7″, Forget The Rest.
Direct Effect recently played FEST 12 in Gainesville, FL. “Permanent Vacation”, the first track from the band’s upcoming album, is streaming on the band’s Fest page here. Also, check out the Sunburn Demos, all three songs will appear on the band’s new album as well. And the band also released a tour video for the album closer, “Thoughts Of Honey” which can be viewed here.
As much as one might enjoy and appreciate the brute force and precision of noise rock it’s also a genre that is too often owned and operated by jaded old dudes who turn up their noses at an audience. Luckily for us Direct Effect leave the holier than thou pretentious vibes at the door and invite the audience to do the same. The band is loud and heavy of course but they play with the intensity and reckless abandon of kids whose roots belong firmly within punk rock and hardcore. On their debut full-length, the band has measured out close to a half hour of unadulterated, noisy hardcore punk that will make fans of Paint It Black, Pissed Jeans and Metz stand up and take note. What was only hinted at on the band’s debut 7″ is now fully formed onSunburn.
