Band: Search Warrant
From: New Bedford, Massachusetts

Their formation story:
(Kyle, guitar): "So, most of us in the band have been long time friends for over 10 years. We grew up going to local hardcore and metal shows together, we were always into heavy underground music. Although we all played instruments. we never really got around to making any music together. It was just never the right time back then.

"A couple years ago, during COVID when there wasn’t much going on, we had a lot of time to gather ideas and realize what we missed the most. Playing music. We decided to start the band shortly after."

Their sound in their own words:
"I’d say our music is fast, aggressive, and unforgiving. It’s hardcore. Day to day we’re all frustrated working class guys who are tired of the socioeconomic collapse of humanity and our music reflects those feelings.

"As far as our influences go, I’d say The Rival Mob is a big one. The Wrong Side, Think I Care, Rotting Out, and even newer bands that are currently killing it like Ingrown."

Latest release info:
"Our newest release is called Re-Execution. It’s a bit of a pivot from our earlier releases and we’re just focused on getting back to the roots of what we love. We welcomed our new vocalist Brendan in this latest release. He’s a great fit and we’re glad to have him on board this time around." 

Future plans:
"Our plans for the immediate future are to just play great shows and have a fun time with our friends and fans and people who’ve never heard of us before."

What other bands from their region should we check out? 
"Everyone needs to go listen to Street Power if you haven’t already. Also check out the homies in Peace Test, Gumskab, Clock Out, and Impulse. Those guys have been absolutely killing it."
