Tyranny Is Tyranny
Knife The Symphony
Now in existence for more than 10 years, Phratry Records continues the tradition of DIY labels like SST, Touch & Go, Dischord, and Amphetamine Reptile. Phratry is an underground label from Cincinnati focused on art and community. http://phratryrecords.com/
Madison's Tyranny Is Tyranny have been working with them since 2011 and on March 20 are proud to host two labelmates with quite different takes on noise-rock.
***Cincy's Knife The Symphony traffic in the rhythmic abrasion pushing against vocal melodies, very much in the vein of bands like Drive Like Jehu and Jawbox. https://knifethesymphony.bandcamp.com/album/split-7
***Toronto's Shanks inject some classic-rock posturing into their proto-punk and noiserock with undeniably hip-shaking results.

On the cusp of releasing our new record
(http://youtu.be/tDFysQiQ1JQ), we're playing mostly newer material with a decidedly prog/post-rock bent.
