Formed in 2021, NJ 4-piece release their debut album ‘New Type Destroyer‘ and its an eclectic mix of all the sounds that have made NJ a punk hub. There’s a mix of hardcore raw force, surf rock intricacies and a lot of post punk snarl. Tracks like the bass heavy ‘Incel King‘ tackles the toxic blame culture of inceldom, whilst tracks like the opener ‘We Killed Davy Crockett‘ and ‘Vampire Squid‘ show the band can throw down and go fast with the best punk bands.
