Whores.
Formed in 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia, the trio has established themselves as one of the most successful and motivated bands in the genre today. Elements of Helmet, Melvins, and the Amphetamine Reptile roster can be heard throughout their catalog, but Whores are no regurgitated throwback act. Through intense, cathartic live performances and the perfected aggressive tenacity present on their recordings, the band has gained a fervent following sure to do nothing but grow in the years to come.


October 28, 2016 saw the band's first full-length album and their debut on eOne records, "GOLD."


The album was widely praised, garnering spots in the top ten on album of the year lists through publications such as Rolling Stone, MetalSucks, Heavy Planet, Invisible Oranges, Shiny Grey Monotone, and more. The band is currently recording the follow-up to "GOLD."


Prior to their signing with eOne, Whores' output included two now-classic EPs. "RUINER." released December 20, 2011, put the band on the noise rock map and is now on its fourth pressing. They followed this up with the even-more popular "CLEAN." released October 29, 2013 and now on its sixth pressing.


Between these and "GOLD." the band released a split of covers by The Cure with Rabbits and contributed the song "Bloody Like the Day You Were Born" to Amphetamine Reptile's "Dope-Guns-'N-Fucking in The Streets, Volume 13". Whores also just contributed the track "Flag Day" to Amphetamine Reptile's "Bash '17" alongside acts such as The Melvins, Mudhoney, Lydia Lunch, and Cherubs.


In their short career, Whores have received much critical praise. Some highlights include:


• "Ten Artists You Need To Know" - Rolling Stone

• "11 Metal Choruses That Will Get Stuck In Your Head All Day" - Alternative Press

• "Best of 2016: Metal" - Apple Music

• "Top 20 Best Noise/Post-Punk & Goth Albums of 2016" - Music & Riots Magazine


Whores have shared the stage with acts such as Red Fang, Torche, Big Business, Melvins, Mudhoney, Retox, Deafheaven, Iron Reagan, Metallica, Slayer, Kylesa, Black Tusk, Royal Thunder, Floor, Lamb of God, Tombs, The Sword, Baroness, Dillinger Escape Plan, Chelsea Wolf, Youth Code and many more.​

Vincas
You would think that because only about 60 miles separate the cities of Athens and Atlanta, Georgia that maybe the same sphere of influence would affect both. In the past decade, Atlanta has seen the growth of a creatively sustainable music scene, and we sort of forgot about our neighbors up the road. There is no shortage of great bars, restaurants and clubs in Athens, but it's been a little while since an Athens band made me want to jump in my car and make the trip. Vincas have given me that much needed excuse. Blood Bleeds is a monster of a record. They are playing dark and heavy songs that at once will draw Birthday Party and Gun Club comparisons. I'd bet they have some later Scientists records in their collections too as there is a discernible element of swampishness weaving itself throughout the record. It's sexy in a super-bitter dark chocolate kind of way and has a pounding cohesiveness throughout. Vincas demonstrate total control from start to finish, and it's pretty clear that they didn't just stumble onto a style of music like this. We truly hope the folks over in Athens realize what they've got on their hands.

Discernible synth melodies. Dance beats. Churning guitar. Pink/white noise. Unconscionable industrial-disco.
