Fresh off of their release of their debut self-titled LP and a tour with The Appleseed Cast, Kansas natives Müscle Wörship are embarking on a tour of the east coast and they’re stopping in Pittsburgh!
Influenced by childhood bands they loved growing up, the post-punk band Müscle Wörship aims to emulate their sound: “We wanted to [create] melodic, angular, and challenging music that we grew up around in the Midwest of the late 90’s and early 2000’s and weren’t finding anymore in our local scene,” says singer/guitarist Sean Bergman, “We like to make music that [makes] you want to repeat listens until the weird stuff sinks in. This is what we loved about certain records we discovered growing up.”
From in your face tracks like “Jesus Vs The Lord” to calmer tracks like “A Firebreather Carefully Sobs,” their LP highlights their ability to create a sound that is both punk-rock and melodic. Their guitar rifts are distinct and memorable with distorted bass accompanying them. You can hear the intense and powerful growl in Bergman’s voice as he sings. And drummer Nathan Wilder (also the drummer of The Appleseed Cast) has been described as “absolutely thrilling.”
Müscle Wörship have opened for Maserati and performed at SXSW in 2012. Fans 21 and older can check them out on their tour when they stop at Howler’s Coyote Café on December 9th at 8:00PM. Tickets are available for $6 at the door!
