PEARS

Website / Facebook / Instagram

PEARS hails from New Orleans, LA, and isn't a band that half-asses anything. In just a few years, the band has released two full-length albums--2014's Go To Prison (re-released by Fat in 2015), 2016's Green Star, 2017 split 12" with Direct Hit--toured relentlessly, and found ways to make raging hardcore punk that's both poppy and just a little humorous.

Single Mothers

Facebook / Bandcamp

"Combining scab-peeling punk with speak-shout vocals reminiscent of the Hold Steady, this band of townies from London, Ontario, ruthlessly skewers hypocrites, McSweeney's snobs, drunk assholes, and God, just to name a few." - Pitchfork

"The start-stop dynamics and serrated vocal hooks of London, Ontario's Single Mothers instantly remind one of the early 2000's, when At the Drive-In, the Blood Brothers, and other sorely missed bands combined math-rock, emo and hardcore into something so scarily close to pop, they couldn't help but implode." - Pitchfork

"It’s a lesson in the power of punk, as the 52-second ‘Womb’ emphasizes: “Rock’n’roll is a sacrifice/So I let you take my body and I threw away my life”.- NME

"Known for their explosive live show, unrelenting punk rock appeal and a palpable tension that seems to bleed into their music, this is a band with some serious brawn behind them" - Noisy/Vice

"Single Mothers is one of those bands you just have to see to believe. " - Exclaim
