When music keeps you alive, changes your existence, is a puzzle, makes your mind wonder, is life, it’s LUNGFISH. This post-hardcore band was formed in 1987 in Washington, D.C. & put almost all their recordings on Dischord. LUNGFISH is a band that I love on a whole different level because

When damaged is rad, when rage is epic, when hardcore is breath…these concepts are at the foundation of what PLAGUES create. This California band has produced a super awesome 7-song album that’s free for download…but more about that later. The PLAGUES sound has this layer of old-school Cali punk about
