Archaeas from Louisville released one the winter’s best punk 45s on Total Punk and have now announced an album to be released on Goner in September. It’s a selftitled LP with 10 tracks and you could hear some of them in their streamed set for Goner TV last week. The band started as a solo endeavour by Violet Archaea, who was partly inspired by the Guitar Wolf flick Wild Zero.
“That Wild Zero, a story where rock and roll superheroes Guitar Wolf come to help a trans heroine save the Earth from an influx of alien zombies, resonated with Violet might not be so surprising, as she was coming to terms with being a badass trans musician in Kentucky.”
The current three-piece sound tight and sharp, as you can hear on “Reality Commander”.
