Charleston, South Carolina noise punk agitators, Florida Man, have joined the Spartan Records roster. Spartan has reissued the band's self-titled debut full-length with new artwork and a bonus track. To celebrate the team-up Florida Man have shared their new music video for album standout "Wet Brain."
Florida Man's sound is a tangle of pummeling guitars and howled vocals that captures the combined spirits of the most iconic noise rock and post-hardcore scenes of the past. The Florida Man LP packs the razor sharp riffing of San Diego (Hot Snakes, No Knife), the sheer power of Seattle (Botch, These Arms Are Snakes), and the unbridled creativity of Washington DC (Fugazi, Faraquet)--all filtered through the band's unique brand of sweat-soaked southern grime, and topped with a dose of full-on hardcore aggression provided by Jim O'Connor's gravel-throated vocals. It's a formidable debut and a taste of what's to come as the band continues to plumb the depths of human strangeness with a new album on the way in 2019.
