Nazca Lines

Hometown: Seattle, WA (USA)


Since 2005, Seattle based punk band Nazca Lines have been piecing together songs which combine emotionally charged lyrics and a loud post–rock/punk instrumentation. Having stuck it out through a number of lineup changes since the band's formation, founding members and guitarists Cory Alfano and Brett Wedeking have recruited Andy King and Ryan Minch on drums and bass, respectively for their upcoming full length album, "Hyperventilation."

Nazca Lines has a punk lineage which shows initially in song writing and energy; however, given a closer inspection the listener can hear a more contemplative and ponderous side of the band. Recorded at the Red Room in Seattle with producer and Minus the Bear founder Matt Bayles (whose recent production work includes Mastodon, ISIS and Russian Circles), "Hyperventilation" draws inspiration from a variety of the band members' shared influences; most notably the Refused, At the Drive–In and Fugazi.

In February 2011, the band released their self–titled EP through Stressed Sumo Records and will be releasing their latest full length album on August 23rd also through the label. Stressed Sumo Records was set up in Derby, UK in 2007 by Therapy– drummer Neil Cooper and Phil Rhodes.
