As a new band, it can be a challenge to grow your fanbase without the push of a new song or record on the internet. But D.C. hardcore quintet Loud Boyz defied the traditional model, first attracting buzz with their audacious live shows rather than relying on recorded music. On their latest effort, Party in the USA, Loud Boyz captures their raucous onstage energy into an ear-splitting, four-song EP that premiered via Afropunk today. Try not to thrash too hard at your job while listening to this record–you can save that instead for Loud Boyz’s EP release show at Rock and Roll Hotel on Friday, May 5. The party features a sick lineup of all-local talent that includes rapper NAPPYNAPPA, post-punk stalwarts Bacchae and Virginia hardcore band Jarvis. Tickets just went on sale for the show, so make sure to scoop those up before it’s too late.
