((Freind)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Written by Patrick McNamara

Freind* is a good band from Queens (Ridgewood, sucka).

These five (Alex! Gus! Andrew! Vanessa! Jade!) play post ____ that shreds and sludges and trips and psychs and punks and pops. There is singing. There is shouting. There is thunder. There is lightning. And there are plenty of chill pretty parts throughout - the easy breezy eyes of the storm, if you will. I love when that all happens!

Since forming somewhere circa early 2015 A.D. the band (who, to remind you, are good) has played (or will play) shows with several other good bands, including The So So Glos and Potty Mouth and Guerilla Toss and Beverly and PWR BTTM and Cende and more good bands I'm almost certainly overlooking. Sorry, other good bands!

Freind* recently released an EP called “Lemon" and due to modern technology you can now BLAST the entire thing below and you totally should. Do you want to know why? Because it's totally good!

And then go see this good band play early / often / forever.

* that's just the way they wanna spell their band's name you gotta problem with that, pall?
