The Skinny: The Sun Will Rise Soon On The False And The Fair is the new album from Pushmen, here for you to stream in its entirety! Pushmen are named after the Japanese subway workers who physically stuff human beings into crowded Tokyo commuter trains. The band originates from Austin, Texas and plays what can be described as a punishing form of metal. At the band’s core are vocalist Craig Moore, guitarist Joey Cortez, and drummer Kevin Fender. All three members were once part of the now defunct late ’90s thrash metal group Employer Employee. After a couple of releases, the band called it quits in 2003 and the three members spent the next eight years playing in various local bands.
In late 2011, Pushmen got its start when bassist Cooper joined the fold. The band chose to take things heavy, influenced by a wide range of different artists. The last piece of the puzzle came in the form of guitarist Mark Nathan, also lead guitarist for The Heartless Bastards. The Sun Will Rise Soon On The False And The Fair is Pushmen’s debut release and it includes nine blistering tracks that is influenced by the band members’ years of experience and influences. In describing what you may feel like after listening to the record, drummer Kevin Fender stated “The Pushmen goal is to find the right combination of notes, beats and rhythms that will in effect create a wormhole large enough for the listener to travel back in time and punch himself in the face for all the years they are about to waste listening to shitty music. Because in our reality that time has gone.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
