Go In

by Achers

We're a London DIY noise rock, punk band inspired by the likes of the San Diego hardcore scene, DC's Rev Summer, and the post punk of the late 70's/80's in the UK. This track 'Go In' is about overcoming anxiety and throwing yourself into life as best you can. "If noone makes it out, go in!"

Elias Black

Elias Black brings to the live band medium the ominous emotionality, twisted textures, and dissonance of industrial music. My songwriting is characterized by barbed hooks and organic musical interplay. Our aesthetic is steeped in 1980s dark wave, punk rock, and alternative rock.
