The Skinny: You could say that Sick Feeling are a Brooklyn-based band, and you’d be right, but their story is one that originates in Berkeley, Austin, Philadelphia, and the suburban New Jersey sprawl – scenes best known for their raw and trenchant undergrounds, vanguard cities to many. Listen to Suburban Myth‘s lead single “Liberal Arts,” along with all of the album’s details below, and stay tuned for more Sick Feeling news soon.
You could say that Sick Feeling are a new band, and even though Suburban Myth is their debut album, that’s almost true. They’ve been together for two years, but their ranks-vocalist Jesse Miller-Gordon, guitarist Don Devore, bassist Danny Wood, and drummer Alan Yuch-have well-established histories playing in a wide-ranging list of bands including Ink & Dagger, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, and the Mongoloids, among others.
You could also say that Sick Feeling are a hardcore-punk band, and you’d be right in the most fundamental sense, but what does that even mean when we’re talking about a band that once curated a photo exhibit in New York and then showed up to play inside of a twelve-foot square box for three nonstop hours? A CBGB Sunday Matinee it was not, but risks like these speak to hardcore’s historic sense of testing boundaries and appropriating space.
