"A knack for genre-smudging clamor, balancing elements of hardcore, punk, and gooey psychedelia." - FADER
The punk powerhouse known as Ex-Cult started six years ago in Memphis, Tennessee. Founders Chris Shaw and Michael Peery conceived the idea at the legendary Memphis dive the Lamplighter, a 37 person capacity “venue” where the band would later play it’s second show. Fast forward to 2018 and the band has toured the continental USA countless times, doing tours with the likes of Ty Segall, OBN IIIs, and Power, in addition to a five week tour of Europe in 2016. Ex-Cult’s recorded resume reads like a who’s who of underground labels, including Goner Records, Castle Face, Famous Class, and most recently, Los Angeles label In The Red Recordings. The band’s pummeling third full length, Negative Growth, is available through now through In The Red.
