MURMURS are a gritty & melodic pop-punk band from the Northwest of America. Seattle, Washington to be specific. When I first listened to this amazing batch of songs, the first thing that popped in my head was, Green Day's "1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours". Right down to the guitar tone. And of course I instantly fell in love. Although way more melodic & harsh than said Green Day album, these tunes draw comparisons from the best of the best in the world of pop-punk/punk rock. Pulling influence from the East Bay of California, right back up to the Northwest, the land of crust. Members of this band have played in a slew of great bands such as: SNUGGLE, No High-Fives To Bullshit, Ratbite, Pipsqueak, Transient, Black Hole Of Calcutta, Makai and more. Recorded by Brandon Fitzsimons @ Airport Grocery in Seattle. Mastered by Dave Edwardson (NEUROSIS). Art by the illustrious Keith Henderson (who has handled art for Shorebirds, Snuggle & more.) Originally released on Cassette by Stay Punk Tapes & Aborted Society Records, this crucial album is now available on vinyl for all the punx to enjoy. Get this shit and jam it 'til you fucking can't anymore. (SPLIT RELEASE w/ DRUNKEN SAILOR RECORDS) 300 on Black, 100 on White, 100 on Opaque Green vinyl.
