New ripping, stomping and heavy hardcore punk from Philadelphia, PA. A true power house and one of the city's best hc/punk acts. I personally love the dirty, gritty and stompy hc/punk style but what really captured me was the almost WB2D/Severed Head of State guitar solo that rips through the opening track. The vocals compliment the music well, rough and gravely. 4 song EP and not to be slept on!

As put by their singer, Cella "42 years ago, the Khmer Rouge commenced one of the most brutal genocides in history, deeming it as Year Zero, a total eradication of its own past, people, traditions, and advancement. Their four years in power claimed two million victims, including multiple members of my own family. With President-elect Trump's impending presidency and it's fear-driven politics, with threats of mass deportation, mass incarceration and innumerable attacks on black and brown bodies everyday, and taking in some of our own experiences as women of color, my bandmates and I can't help but think that another Year Zero-like era is looming. The past few months have been extremely trying for a lot of us and it's hard to fathom what the next four years will bring. It is clear we still have a lot of work to do, but with this band, I feel more empowered than ever. Thank you to everyone who has ever supported us and for giving me the courage and strength to find my voice."
