Chicago hardcore bruisers Porcupine combine heavy rhythms with thoughtful lyricism, taking notes from scene luminaries like Converge, Cursed, Dangers and 108.
Over the years, Porcupine has strived to hone in on their craft through a series of demos, split releases and EPs (mostly self-recorded) and create a name for themselves with their chaotic and cathartic live shows.
To celebrate the release of their new 12” EP, The Sibyl, out February 26 through New Morality Zine, New Noise Magazine is proud to premiere the EP in full below:
The Sibyl offers up Porcupine’s brand of abrasive, fast and dark sound while also seeing the band lean into their slower and more dramatic side, pulling from disparate influences like Swans and Suicide. The Sibyl is a sign of growth for the band. Notable in everything from the unguarded lyrics, eerie sound clips, signature screams and disorderly guitar.
On the EP, the band states:
“Our most challenging, abrasive, cathartic release.”
