About Unstoppable Death Machines:
Unstoppable Death Machines is an art punk explosion from Brooklyn via Queens formed by (twin) brothers, Mike & Billy Tucci. UDM have traveled the globe, bringing their brand of industrial-tinged urban art-punk from NYC’s underground club scene to countless venues, rooftops, warehouse parties, art galleries and museums.
The duo’s raucous live performances and unique instrumentation (featuring walls of stacked speakers and face-mounted microphones the band engineered themselves) quickly earned UDM a loyal following, and rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The sound is fierce, vibrant and urgent drawing comparisons to indie-punk stalwarts like Suicide, Devo, Big Black and The Ramones as well as Brooklyn contemporaries like Japanther, Lightning Bolt, and Death From Above 1979. UDM have shared the stage with artists as diverse as Mos Def, Daniel Johnston, Ninjasonik, Flatbush Zombies, Cerebral Ballzy, Zach Hill, FIDLAR, Pissed Jeans, Melt Banana, Ho99o9, The So So Glos, Devendra Banhart, Trinidad James, and Blondie.
Unstoppable Death Machines’ sonic assault is matched by the visual and sculptural installations they create for site-specific performances. The band has achieved national acclaim, not just as musicians but also performance artists. Bridging the gap between the underground and the art world has earned UDM coveted appearances at Art Basel Miami, Art Prize Grand Rapids, and multiple appearances at the Queens Museum Art. A sculptural replica of the band’s equipment and stage setup was purchased by a private collector and is now on permanent display at the 21C Museum Hotel.
In 2012 the band released their debut full length We Come In Peace to critical acclaim, garnering coverage and premieres from MTV, Vice, Impose, Spin, AV Club and Noisey, among others. Noisey described Unstoppable Death Machines as the “new wave of Devo, downtown New York avant-garde, an electronics-sprayed attack.”
In 2013, a collaboration with Chicago MC, ShowYouSuck– featuring distorto bass and trap drums by the band, found its way on his mixtape and premiered as best new music on Consequence of Sound.
In 2014 the band released Single Clarity, a ten minute improvisational noise-pop single and toured behind it. Noisey called it a “head-spinning, conceptual opus, envisioning an aggro-punk dystopia, melting the demented.”
The band collaborated with multiple NY-based Directors on eight highly regarded music videos for album singles like “Space Time Continuum”, “Once In A Lifetime,” “Trial & Error,” “Do The Devo,” and “Single Clarity.” Seeing premieres and praise on Noisey, Spin, Vice, Impose, AV Club, Animation Block, Village Voice, and others.
Spring 2016, UDM dropped a single called, “WastedLand.” The song appears as the title theme for the film, Wastedland2, directed by Andrew H. Shirley. Complex premiered the track calling it, a “high-octane cut showcasing their killer noise-rock sound.”
