Are they punk? Are they hardcore? Melodic Hardcore?
One thing I do know is that they are original. It's hard to put a finger on the band’s sound, pulling elements from trashy skate punk stalwarts from years past and combining that sound with technical riffs, angular chord shapes, non traditional song structures and elements from post and math rock. Singer Ben Kotin’s smart and clean melodies consist of equal parts emotion and aggression at the exact right moments. They keep the listener pleasantly awaiting what’s around the corner. They are not afraid to break the mold, shake things up and do things their own way.
Such Gold was formed in 2009 in Rochester, NY and was steeped in the region's tradition for quality punk, melodic hardcore bands and the DIY ethic. The band quickly released a demo, followed by a series of EPs and 7”s on various labels. In 2012 the band signed with released their first of 2 albums with Razor and Tie. Both albums "Misadventures" and "The New Sidewalk" brought the band instant acclaim with both the hardcore and pop punk scenes. They’ve spent equal amounts of time touring both domestically and abroad with the likes of Strung Out, PUP, The Story So Far, PEARS, Anti Flag and A Wilhelm Scream. The band will soon re-release 2010’s EP "Pedestals" on BIRD ATTACK RECORDS along with material from a few splits that have been long out of print.
