HOT NERDS + PunkNews

"The band takes the early synth-punk of Suicide and The Screamers, chops it up in a blender, and spits out a fractured, nasty sound that alternates between abrasive and bouncy. This is far out, man."
–PunkNews

"Their spastic, demented, synth-heavy sound encapsulates all the insanity that is 2015."
–VICE

"Part of a proud San Diego tradition of completely wild and utterly unabashed spazzitude... Strategically Placed Bananas is a ten-song collection of synth, skronk, and spite."
–Noisey

"Spastic rock that owes as much to dissonant Dischord-style post-hardcore as it does to Baltimore's experimental pop scene of the late '00s."

–BrooklynVegan

Hot Nerds have blessed the world with their latest track, "Shock Value on the Rocks," now streaming via PunkNews.


Stream "Shock Value on the Rocks," here.

The song appears on Hot Nerds' debut LP, Strategically Placed Bananas, out March 10th on Three One G Records, the label owned by Justin Pearson of The Locust, Retox, Head Wound City, and many more. Melding primitive electro with wacky brutality, the San Diego trio is right at home on Three One G. Frontman Nathan Joyner is also a bandmate of Pearson's, currently in All Leather, and formerly in Some Girls.
