“With the resonating, emotional rollercoaster of the introductory title track, we are along for the ride as we experience a gamut of energies and intensities. Truth is, those same two things repeatedly reveal themselves in number after number……Then, there are those damned oh-so intriguing lyrics, the kind that inspire one to wonder just what the story behind them might be.” – Riff Relevant

“Unknown Nobodies bring forth a powerful release with “Violet”…which features a powerful vocal delivery that ranges between harsh yells and quiet repents.

Bio:

Unknown Nobodies are a garage punk duo that plays like a three-piece out of Baltimore, MD, with intense lives shows that are a mix of melody and raw energy. Their latest release The Perplexed Sky  is a story of highs and lows; of intense relationships, of bliss, delusions and the resurfacing of demons. Singer/songwriter Jack Murray plays with the idea of self in today’s world, examining how our own perceptions are different than how others see us. The Perplexed Sky  was produced by J. Robbins, a prominent figure in the legendary DC music scene of the 80s and 90s, at Magpie Cage in Baltimore. J’s previous work includes Jawbox and Government Issue (member) as well as Clutch, Against Me!, and Jawbreaker (recording and production) among many others. The album is available on translucent dark purple vinyl, CD, and all digital platforms.

The band’s live shows are a mix of noise, melody and frustration. As a duo, Jack uses guitars with bass parts built-in. This creates distinct bass and guitar sounds that feed into separate amplifiers, similar to 90’s act Local H, but with Jack’s own technique and performance. Drummer Korey Hershberger sets-up his kit at the front of the stage to directly engage the crowd. The band has played throughout the mid-Atlantic region opening for national acts such as Smile Empty Soul, Flaw, and legendary British post-punk band Skeletal Family. In the last year-and-a-half, they have played a number of local venues including Baltimore Soundstage, The Black Cat (DC), The Windup Space, Angel’s Rock Bar at Power Plant Live!, The Crown, Fish Head Cantina, among many others, having been invited to perform at all but a few by local and touring acts or promoters. They have also performed at festivals including the Liberty Musicfest in Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore Music Festival in New Jersey.

The band has its roots in Gainesville, FL where they released their first EP Kakistocracy (2015), recorded by Roger Lima (Less Than Jake). Shortly after, Jack moved to NYC where the band released their second EP …Or the Devil Will Get You  recorded at If and Only If Productions in Brooklyn as well as a limited 7″ split on Leesta Vall Sound Recordings. In 2017 Jack came to Baltimore and immersed himself in the local scene. After quickly establishing a presence with a number of shows, the band began work on The Perplexed Sky  in 2018.

Influenced by bands such as The Wipers, Screaming Trees, REM, Agent Orange, Nirvana and the White Stripes, they are often described as ranging from surf punk to garage rock, alternative and even paisley underground. One promoter described their new album as “dream grunge alt-punk” while the album’s producer J. Robbins said certain elements reminded him of post-punk band The Chameleons.
