United Nations to rock off your face…

United Nations

It’s rare that I see something on MySpace that actually gets me excited.  Ok, ok… I get excited when there are new bulletins that I can fill out and let mindless readers know what color boxers I am wearing and if my parents and I ever fight over curfew….doesn’t everyone?

Anyways…

I logged on to the “Place For Friends” website yesterday and saw something on the home page about a band called United Nations.  I became interested mainly because I got a kick out of the picture of the band and laughed at how all members were all wearing Ronald Regan masks.  I became more interested at the sarcastic description of the band that said that the members of the band have nothing to do with Glassjaw, Converge, or Thursday.  That to me read: Awesome!  This band contains members of 3 bands I adore…

I did a little Wikipedia‘n and discovered that the band right now is pretty much a secret due to contract obligations but the band, rather grindcore screamo (you are right Adam and Ram, no grindcore at all…) supergroup, will be putting out their debut album on 09/09/08 on Eyeball Records (who has previously released material by Thursday…).  Better yet the band has decided to stream their entire debut on MySpace.  You can check that out HERE.

I sampled a few of the songs and all I can say is that this band is brutal.  The sounds of Thursday + Converge = Great Idea.  For all you fans of loud heavy screaming metal but have a soft spot for screamo, this album will be for you.  This album is going to be the next big thing.

To make matters even funnier, head over to the United Nations official website.  It is a parody of the UN website full of satire and witty links.  I laughed out loud at the FAQ‘s that have serious questions and humorous answers relating the the United Nations band and not the so-called government association based upon cooperation (or so they say).

I have not really been excited about an upcoming release all summer and I am glad something has finally sparked my attention.  I expect big things from this band and I know the hype is going to be worth it…now if they will only swing though my town so they can rock my face off.

If you are like me and want to pre-order their debut album, click the link below…
