Alright guys, cool music
MUSCLEMAN are an indie rock band from Wellington, NZ.
Channeling a refreshing intensity and directness, they inevitably draw comparisons with bands such as Joy Division, the Stranglers, Fugazi, the Replacements and the Minutemen.
Hypnotically unrelenting, their live shows navigate that rare line between chaos and symbiosis. The lumbering interplay of melodious bass and skeletal drumming creates an iron-clad framework and foundation for jagged and dislocating guitar work to neurotically pace top of.
They truly embody the punk romance of sweat, smoke and violence.
Their practice space is carved out from the Northern face of the Southern ranges, the skinless mountain of NZ's gothic interior.
They currently live in Five Rivers.
Their first album, Destruction Spells, is being released sometime in 2019.
