Atlanta, Georgia mathcore upstarts, THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS, have joined MNRK Heavy together with Modern Static Records for the release of their impending new full-length!

A recklessly free-spirited collective, THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS is made of six members, featuring a violinist and multiple vocal contributions. Together they deliver a vibrant combination of mathcore, sasscore, and post-hardcore — a sound that is at once abrasive, chaotic, and classy. Reveling in high-strung extremity their music is dense, impenetrable, and chaotic yet confusingly inviting as each song deliriously swerves across stylistic lines. The band Kill Your Stereo called “insane, intricate, and impressive” introduced themselves to the underground with 2019’s Die On Mars. Invisible Oranges championed the band’s, “rapid-fire tempo and time changes, leftfield genre swaps, and sardonic lyrics,” while Metal Injection insisted the group’s riotously explosive debut would, “make you punch everyone ever in the face,” and they meant it in the best way possible.

In celebration of THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS’ union with MNRK Heavy, today the band unveils their new single and video, “A Brief Article Regarding Time Loops.” Now playing at BrooklynVegan, the track marks a triumphant return and artistic leap forward from their previous material, careening through fractures of abstract and heavy, flaunting their unhinged chaos without sacrificing accessibility. The band’s use of expanded soundscapes is complimentary to their spastic, hook-driven approach to writing, creating a truly unique style of mathcore.

Elaborates vocalist Carson Pace of the track, “Capturing your first experience of Déjà vu? Have you heard this breakdown before? Does it matter? What are the intentions of man’s best friend? Start over.”

Adds BrooklynVegan, “With three minutes of shapeshifting metalcore that sounds even more chaotic than anything on Die On Mars, ‘A Brief Article Regarding Time Loops’ already proves that the wait has been worth it. It continues the Daoboys’ knack for fusing Botch/Converge-style mathcore with Every Time I Die/The Chariot-style theatrics, but even that description can’t prepare you for this beast, which also incorporates white noise, a spoken word head trip, a deathcore-ish breakdown, and a complete disregard for traditional song structure.”
