There might be more than one band called Brainpan out there, but we’re concerned with the one from D.C. that describes itself as playing “grind-influenced hardcore.”
The band’s new album, Turn On, Tune In, Drop Dead, is a solid record with some welcome variation amongst the songs, if nothing groundbreaking. That’s OK though, as the record features clean but aggressive sound production, and the performance could be described as clean but aggressive too—both good things.
The record comes out on August 10, 2018 on Napniarb Records, followed closely by a record release show August 18 in the band’s hometown. You don’t have to wait to hear Turn On, Tune In, Drop Dead, though: Revolver is streaming it, so do yourself a favor and give it a spin.
Vinyl will be limited to 300 copies, but it’ll be on Bandcamp too, where preorders are live.
Meanwhile, keep up with Brainpan at its website.
