Produced by the acclaimed Matt McJunkins of A Perfect Circle/Puscifer, this release is poised to elevate the band's status in the punk scene.
Scheduled to drop on January 25th, "Read the Room" promises to be a raw and unapologetic anthem that captures the essence of The Anti-Groupies' relentless DIY work ethos. The accompanying music video is sure to add a visual punch to the band's sonic rebellion.
The Anti-Groupies, comprised of Kyla (Drums), Sydney (Bass), Cassidy (Guitar/Vocals), and Bella (Guitar), have been making waves with their electrifying performances across Southern California. Having shared the stage with notable acts like Speed Of Light, Minor Strut, The Dropoffs, Prestyn Smith, and Tomorrow's Anthem, the band has solidified its presence in the local punk rock scene.
Drawing inspiration from rock legends such as Black Sabbath, Paramore, Maneskin, Sex Pistols, Rush, and Megadeth, The Anti-Groupies seamlessly blend influences from various genres. Recent singles like "Social Battery" and "Voicemail" pay homage to guitar greats like Tony Iommi and Jimmy Page, while embracing the raw simplicity that defined underground punk and alternative rock in the '90s.
