- Knitting Factory
- Brooklyn, NY
Someone might have to call the Guiness Book of World Records, because this could be the heaviest lineup for a show that's ever happened in Brooklyn. Don't be a doofus, get your tickets ahead of time for this one...though I suppose if you didn't get in, you could hear it from down the block.
Giraffe Tongue Orchestra at Gramercy Theater
Just when you thought the world was on its last leg and nothing good would happen for the rest of 2016...we got something to turn your frown right side up again: we have the pleasure of opening for Giraffe Tongue Orchestra - a band made up of some of our musical heroes - at Gramercy Theater in NYC on 12.1. Not to mention, our friends in Netherlands playing right after us as well. This is going to be a crazy memorable show. Be sure to pick up tickets if you can!
Candiria 5 Borough World Tour
We have the honor this week of playing with the one and only Candiria (and holy shit, Dalek too) at Gold Sounds in Brooklyn this Wednesday, October 12th. Candiria is one of the bands that taught all of us - especially in a band like ours - that genre doesn't mean a fucking thing. Go where the music takes you.
September Tour 2016
We're hitting the road for a few dates in the northeast this September. Some highlights include Kingston with Dead Empires on the 16th, Brooklyn with the Caustic Casanova homies on the 28th...oh, and Black Bear Bar on October 12th with the mighty Candiria and Dalek. Yeah, we're stoked too.
Pit Full of Shit Covers Fera Live
Thank you very much to Frank Huang, the man behind the treasure chest of live heavy music videos for coming through to the Sunnyvale release show and filming our entire set - which was Fera in order in its entirety. Check it out!
Today marks the day the album is officially out! The show last night was nothing short of amazing. Thank you very much to Geometers, Spotlights, and Bangladeafy for ripping with us. All of those bands deserve your time and attention, so go check them out!
If you haven't picked out a bundle or choice of merch from Aqualamb.org, what are you waiting for? Go check them out, or bump the record wherever you're at...because it's on Spotify, too. Enjoy, share your favorite riffs and songs with us, and spread word of Fera far and wide.
"Nature vs. Nurture" Music Video"
This is the second video released for Fera, a song called "Nature vs. Nurture." The video was compiled and edited by Arnau, and premiered by Metal Injection. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this 2:15 clip of the world slowly circling the drain...
"So Long, Capricornian Crone" Music Video"
Here is the video for the first single off of Fera, entitled "So Long Capricornian Crone". Shot, edited, and directed by Thane Lund, with assistance from our own Arnau Bosc.
Fera - Pre-Order Info and Record Release Shows
All pre-order info including the 140 page art and lyric book, t-shirts, and CDs can be found on our Bandcamp.
We'll be taking the weekend to play some shows to celebrate the record release, with more tour announcements coming soon!
Fera - 08.23.16
Fera (genitive ferae); (fem.)
wild animal, beast
This is something we’ve been working hard at for a long time now, and we’re excited to announce the release of our first full-length record entitled “Fera” – through Aqualamb Records, coming out on August 23rd.
Tax Evasion Tour 2016
We're heading out for a couple of days in April, starting off with a home show at Acheron and ending at the Meatlocker in Jersey with some Maryland fun in between. We'll see you out there. News on the record is coming soon, we promise.
Last Shows of 2015
We've had a hell of a year for 2015. Tons of shows and new friends. We birthed our first LP which will likely see the light of day in 2016. We've got two more shows for 2015, and at the two best venues in Brooklyn for heavy proggy weirdo music. First up is 11.30 at Saint Vitus with St. Bastard and Prostitution. Then we conclude our year with this ripper of a lineup on 12.05 at the Acheron with Moon Tooth, Caustic Casanova, and Lutkie.
October brings out the flannel, pumpkin spice bullshit everything, cuffin' season, hot toddys, and three dope Husbandry shows. We're heading out on a three day jaunt on Columbus Day weekend with our new friends in Baltimore's Queen Wolf, starting with their record release show on 10.9, heading up to Silver Spring, MD for a house show on
10.10, and then ending at Piano's in the lower east side on 10.11 with two of our local favorites: Drella and Disparager.
We'll see you out there.
I want to say "tour is over, we survived" - but I can't hear that line in my head without hearing it in Tom DeLonges voice, so forget I even said it. Thank you to everyone who came out, gave us a high five, gave us a slow clap because you weren't sure if the song was over yet, bought a t-shirt or copy of the EP, etc. We appreciate it a ton and had a great time. Here's a couple of pictures from our week out.
These two creatures kept us company in Philly and York. Worst guitar techs. Had to let them go.
Shout out to Joe's Records in Silver Spring. A gigantic record store that had that good old classic rock musty smell. Excellent turnout and all the bands were very cool.
Thank you to Carina's family who housed and fed us for two days in York, PA. You can actually see our guts a bit bigger in this picture due to all the barbeque we consumed. Tour life is hard.
Berklee School of Music. 'Nuff said.
Getting turnt backstage in Rhode Island. Wilin' out. Parties til 12am every night. Seriously, one of my favorite venues of the tour - Machines with Magnets. A beautiful space that is art gallery, recording studio and venue all in one. Also run by excellent people, thank you again for the hospitality and projections, Keith.
Here you can see how glad Andrew is that Jordan got his license, and how glad Jordan is that no one is dead.
Had to do a run to Frank Pepe's in New Haven before we came home to see what the hype was about. A solid pizza, but NYC is still king. Nice try, Connecticut.
Summer Tour 2015
What's a great way to cap off spending a week in a recording studio destroying your brain while recording your album? Spending eight days on the road playing those songs and destroying your body. We're really excited to play with a ton of really great bands starting on August 8th at Kung Fu Necktie.
Check our Facebook for all show details.
Fera (genitive ferae); (fem.) wild animal, beast
Husbandry's debut full length is a wild, aggressive and sensual trip across nine masterfully crafted and equally unrelenting tracks. The riotous result of years of inspiration and experimentation compressed by the heat of a sweltering mid-July recording session, the band gunned through the album's explosive tracks like beasts through a jungle. In under a week's time — without doctoring or pitch correction to be found — the band emerged with FERA in tact. There's an undeniable immediacy to the fierce and frenetic energy of the record that is in debted at least partially to its scorching, raw, and feral origins.
Carina Zachary - vocals, Bronx street cred
Jordan Usatch - guitars, Seinfeld references
Arnau Bosc - bass, vocals, hilarious mispronunciations
Andrew Gottlieb - drums, food recommendations
Nerdist Coverage of Fera
“...the sort of stuff that should be filling stadiums. It’s catchy and intense, like a version Mars Volta or Dillinger Escape Plan you could listen to with your mom and dad."
MetalSucks Covers Crone Video
“The track is bouncy — got my head bobbing up and down — and there are plenty of riffs here that dug their claws right into me..."
AfroPunk Video Premier
“Fronted by Carina Zachary, this four-piece band of rockers is the antidote to boredom, the counter to stagnation, and a thorough glimpse at the trajectory of modern rock."
Half Cloth Best EPs 2014
“Sharp and tense, moody and oblique, Husbandry’s four song Make Room For Waves offers twenty minutes of dense punk that never stops churning. On EP-highlight “Sentient”, which pivots from thick Jawbox-esque sprawl to sidewinding riffs reminiscent of Hot Snakes, singer Carina Zachary demands “Who’s accountable?” – a devastatingly apt question for a year defined by nightmarish unaccountability. Husbandry recall a golden era...
Repartiseraren on “Biralata”
“In Brooklyn you find a band that has its roots down under, but above the ground they reside with post-punk overtones. With their interesting combination of metal, experimental rock, post-hardcore and post-punk they make way for who they’ve become. Since they haven’t been around for that long, let alone put out anything besides their newly released “Make Room For Waves” EP, it’s great to hear something fresh once in a while.
