Biography

Originally conceived as a long-distance experiment, PUBLICIST UK quickly and effortlessly became a fully functioning band. Featuring Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, and ex Burnt by the Sun, Discordance Axis, Melt-Banana), Zachary Lipez (ex Freshkills), Brett Bamberger (Revocation, ex East of the Wall) and David Obuchowski (Goes Cube, Distant Correspondent), many expected speedy, aggressive metal. Instead, the band defied expectations, creating a post-punk sound that is as moody and melodic as it is heavy and driving. After writing and rough-recording songs from their respective homes in Virginia, New York, New Jersey, and Colorado, the band released two demos, one premiered by Decibel Magazine, the other by Noisey. Shortly thereafter, the band signed to Relapse Records, and recorded their full-length in New Hampshire at The Wild Arctic Studio with producer Dean Baltulonis.

PUBLICIST UK are:

Zachary Lipez – Vocals
