The Messthetics are an instrumental trio featuring Brendan Canty (drums), Joe Lally (bass), and Anthony Pirog (guitar). The Messthetics was formed by former Fugazi members, and their music has been described as jazz punk jam. In 2018, the trio released their self-titled debut album in, which included 9 highly songs recorded at Canty’s studio space. The Messthetics hit the road and spent much of the following year on tour, performing upwards of 200 shows across the US, Europe, and Asia.
Their second full length, Anthropocosmic Nest will arrive in fall of 2019. It’s the work of a more experienced band, whose dialog as a performing unit has necessarily focused and intensified. It’s the loudest the trio has ever been and also the quietest. Their most tuneful set of compositions and also their weirdest.
