Stress

Bio

Stress is a new 5 piece hardcore and noise-rock band based in Wellington - New Zealand and is comprised of members assembled from a fistful of accomplished Wellington bands, featuring Callum Gay (vocals) and Ben Dentice (guitar) of Spook The Horses, Alex Backhouse (bass) ex-DIAL, Otis Chamberlain (guitar) ex-Akaname, and Jason Gascoigne (drums) ex-Strangers.

Stress came into being by a combination of good geographical timing, shared history, and a mutual love of heavy, dissonant and disparaging noise. Having cohabited stages, vans and floors with their respective pedigree bands over the past decade, Stress’s inception and sound was a natural and almost inevitable eventuality.

With an emphasis on abrasive tones, sustained intent, and a grounding in simplicity - Stress set forth a mandate of bleak density, drawing inspiration from historic iconoclasts of the order of Breach, Converge, Knut and Abhinanda, while drawing parallels with contemporaries such as Dödsvarg, Bridge Burner, and Coilguns. Stress deliver a dose of heavy hardcore with undercurrents of sludge, post-metal, and death-rock.

Stress recently introduced their live show in August 2018, helping local black-noise outfit Tuscoma kickstart their 63 date European tour, and followed up in September with local support for Tired Minds and Darkhorse (Australia). Stress will round out the year opening for Hexis (Denmark) this December, and will release their 5-track debut EP Misery Fatigue independently on December 20th via Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes and a host of digital platforms.
