Missionary - 2013 - Demo

Missionary is a hardcore punk band from New York City. Demo is their debut release. They feature  (ex) members of Social Circkle, Green Beret, Nomos, Hank Wood & the Hammerheads, Goosebumps, Shoxx, Dipers and more. They play a limber, ramshackle brand of punk with songs that seem heading off the rails at times.

Wasted Again has a chaotic vibe to it, feeling like it's going to fall apart in any moment especially in contrast to the raging opener Too Late. Scab is a focused hardcore attack that is still somewhat shaggy, and the closer Zionist finds a focus on a slamming rhythm and even a guitar solo. If you're down for some street ready hardcore punk Missionary can provide that.
