“WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH. ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME? I SAID COME ON YOU CUNTS!”
In a music scene that increasingly places importance on immaculate appearance, radio friendly catchy choruses and commercial potential, London loud-louts DRIPBACK are a refreshing and much needed antidote. Showing a complete disregard for trends and bandwagons, the furious five piece mix elements of hardcore, death metal, punk and grindcore with a nuclear energy to produce a sound that, while wearing its influences on its collective sleeve, is uniquely their own.
Formed by friends with the simple motivation of hanging out more, what started as shits and giggles in a filthy London rehearsal room has grown into a monster that refuses to be contained in a sound-proof room.
Playing their first show supporting Soilent Green as part of a UK tour, DRIPBACK spent the first 18 months of their existence dropping jaws with their devastating live show, opening for such metal and hardcore luminaries as Biohazard, Lock Up, Pig Destroyer and Nasum, as well as treading the boards at DOWNLOAD and BLOODSTOCK FESTIVALS while promoting their “Inhaling The Ashes” EP (Siege Of Amida Records).
With more people turning up at each show, and great feedback from mags like Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound and Terrorizer, BBC Radio One Rock Show and Kerrang Radio spinning tracks and the brave Scuzz TV putting their video on rotation, it became clear that DRIPBACK was starting to become bigger than just five friends having a laugh.
With this in mind, the band started work on their debut proper, with renowned producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, Ginger, Evile). The result is 13 tracks of hateful, bile-filled, socially aware venom that will immediately bring a big shit-eating grin to any fan of extreme music.
The debut album titled ‘Failed Futures‘ was released digitally on January 20th 2014 via their own (self release) label ‘4 Family Records’. Vinyl to be released March 24th 2014. With sterling magazine reviews, exclusive plays from Radio 1 and a great all round reaction to Dripback’s debut album, the future looks pretty exciting!
