- Noi!se is a punk rock band from Tacoma Washington.
- I have been listening to punk rock for about 38 years. I have heard so much punk rock, that new material in 2018 sometimes goes in one ear and out the other. Noi!se is a current band that stands above the crowd, motivates me to write about, because I want to make sure you know about them. I love their sound. The guitars, the anthemic drive and power along with distinct vocal tonality and delivery.
- Skinhead Rob (TRANSPLANTS/RANCID) lends some vocal assistance to "Mass Apathy".
- This 12" vinyl single includes the one song ("Mass Apathy"), with a silkscreen print of the band's logo and "Mass Apathy" on the non-playable b-side. The outer edge of the record itself has a ring of bullets milled out... bringing to mind a punk/metal bullet belt ala Motorhead. The poly sleeve has a silkscreen of "We bury kids and we say 'It's a Shame'. Concern lasts less than murderers minutes of fame. It can all change in the blink of an eye. How Many More Children Have to Die."
- In response to the recent barrage of public shootings, especially those involving school children, NOi!SE and Pirates Press Records will donate all proceeds from this release to several charities.
- You can vote on which charities receive these funds at this link: http://piratespressrecords.com/massapathy/
- The five winning charities will be announced on December 7th, 2018.
- Give "Mass Apathy" a listen below on Spotify or YouTube.
- Get yourself a copy of the physical record. This is a mandatory record to add to your vinyl collection. It hits on so many levels (physical uniqueness, charity, kids and the song is spot on)!
