Las Vegas, NV, June 2014 – SquidHat Records is proud to announce the debut release from popular Vegas punk band, The Quitters. The LP, released on blue vinyl and limited to 500 copies, is available nationally via NAIL Distribution and internationally through PlanetWorks Enterprises.
“The Quitters energy and amazing live show have made them a favorite “night out” for all of us at the label for quite some time.” said SquidHat Records President and founder, Allan Carter. “As I’ve watched them mature and evolve, both as performers and songwriters, I knew that the time was right to bring them into the family and help them make this incredible record.”
Hailing from Las Vegas, NV, The Quitters, featuring Marc (lead Vocals/bass), Micah (drums/vocals), Tommy (lead guitar/vocals) and Randy (guitar/vocals) met in their high school Jazz band and played their first show on July 20th, 2004. Since then they have been named “Best Punk Rock Band” by Vegas Rocks Magazine in 2011, and have developed a large, loyal following through tireless dedication, relentless touring and a high-speed, energetic live show that can’t help but prompt an old-school mosh pit.
The Quitters play progressive, aggressive, obnoxious punk rock filtered through rock, jazz and latin influences and sustained by a relentless hardcore punk energy. Their style is as unique as it is frenzied and they push beyond the typical 4 chord progression of traditional punk music. Each song incorporates an element of adopted style, something they haven’t done before, to make the music approachable but also complex. In the typically repetitive genre of modern punk The Quitters pride themselves on breaking the mold while holding on to the ideal and influences of their punk past. With such diverse influences as Refused, Bad Religion, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Bronx, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Mars Volta, Green Day, Offspring, MGMT and Dillinger Escape Plan their powerful sound punches you in the face with lightning-fast drumming, shredding guitar and bass and frantic high-energy vocals.
The Quitters indie label debut will be released on July 8, 2014, by SquidHat Records, with extensive tour support to follow. Halfway between hipster and hardcore these Quitters won’t be quitting anytime soon.
