SickWalt invites you to dance, sing, and freak out with one foot over the edge of destruction…and the other foot headed towards the light. Pancakes And Whiskey states about Sickwalt, «This past week New Yorkers received a holiday treat: a true blue rock band performing with heart, passion and thoughtful precision». The track Demand The stage,
After earning their reputation by setting legendary NYC stages on fire, SickWalt unleashes a sound-defining effort with their latest single Demand The Stage, out now via X-Ray Records. Demand The Stage is taken from their upcoming album Shove n’ Love. That album is SicWalt first full-length after two EP`s.
Demand The Stage is an addictive, head-bobbing, toe-tapping song with blazing crisp guitar riffs, thumping & pumping drums, and a robust bottom end that lays the foundation for SickWalt’s unique vocal style. It also has that undeniable NYC sound!
SickWalt certainly have the pedigree to create some major noise on the rock scene. The band is fronted by Walt Sick Walt, Matt Middleton on guitar, Rob Buckley on bass (Cro-Mags, Urban Sun, M-16) and Eric Arce on drums (The Misfits, Murphy’s Law, Skarhead, Maximum Penalty).
SickWalt is an unapologetic NYC rock n’ roll band from Astoria, Queens. With a sound that captures the same energy that all-time greats like MC5 and AC/DC channeled in their early work, the band is a needed reminder of what rock n’ roll can be. The track Truth Trader from 2016.
Since being founded in 2014, SickWalt has earned a reputation on the New York scene as a live act to be reckoned with. They use stages like St. Vitus, The Bowery Electric, and The Mercury Lounge to send crowds into tailspins and are notoriously hard to follow, just ask The Dickies. Just ask Agent Orange. Just ask D.O.A. or The Waldo’s or Handsome Dick and the Dictators. They’ll all tell you the same thing: playing with SickWalt makes for a legendary show.
With their latest album, Shove n’ Love, SickWalt conjures that adrenaline-in-a-can spirit of their live shows and combines it with the band’s most developed sound to date. The result? A kickass album with enough energy to pick you up off the couch and drop you in the middle of a sold-out Saturday night show in NYC.
