THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS released their critically adored Celebrity Therapist full-length in September 2022 via MNRK Heavy and Modern Static Records.

Reviving noise rock like they’re summoning the dead, the curious collective conjures a sound that’s unapologetically dense and impenetrable yet confusingly inviting as each song deliriously swerves across stylistic lines.

Revolver crowned Celebrity Therapist, “one of the year’s wildest rides.” Lambgoat lauded, “an album that possibly stands to make a permanent mark on the current heavy music landscape,” and, “an essential listen to anyone interested in extreme music reaching outside the box.” Bandcamp Daily wrote, “Even as avant-minded metalcore albums go, Celebrity Therapist is exceptionally chaotic…But don’t dare call THE DAOBOYS’ sophomore breakthrough ‘random’… Frontman Carson Pace twists his rage against cultish conservative/neoliberal groupthink into a dense tangle of absurdist-tangent lyrics. The result is pyrotechnic protest music that wields the young DAOBOYS’ conversance with information overload as a weapon against algorithm-age ignorance.” Celebrity Therapist earned the #6 position on Billboard’s Top New Artists chart upon its first week release and continues to reap critical accolades globally.

Celebrity Therapist is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. Preview and purchase the record at THIS LOCATION.
