“Get noisy, get angry” demand Deathsticks, an intense noise/garage rock duo from Peterborough, ON consisting of Laura Klinduch and Matt Post. Mashing up equal parts alternative, garage rock, hardcore, noise noise, post-punk, psych and straight-up weirdness, the terrible twosome have somehow created a unique sound that is the aural equivalent of organised chaos.

Taken from their recent 3-song split EP with BSHC (released on April 28, 2016), we’re pleased to offer a free download of the Deathsticks song “Queen of Darkness” which is 3 minutes and 37 seconds of the above-mentioned sonic madness. The song was recorded and mastered by Keegan Okazaki at Nocturnal Audio in Whitby, ON.
