Noisey calls Driftoff's Modern Fear "a model of excellence in heavy music"; Decibel calls it "frantic, feedback-riddled post-hardcore... noisy, squalling forward momentum."

Based in Brooklyn, Driftoff consists of members of Junius, Rosetta, and City of Ships. On Modern Fear, these vets drive hard with a burly post-hardcore sound in line with bands like Quicksand, Hot Water Music, and Planes Mistaken For Stars. Layers of yearning vocals and radiant guitars shine atop a massive rhythm section. The quartet plows through four perfect post-hardcore gems, taking lyrical inspiration from stories about its hometown of New York.

New Yorkers, catch Driftoff live at the following shows:
Nov 4 - Brooklyn, NY @ Black Bear w/ + special guest headliner, So Hideous, Edhochuli
Nov 7 - Amityville, NY @ Amityville Music Hall

"A model of excellence in heavy music... Driftoff is the band you need to know. The tones of the guitars reflect hints of Deftones or Handsome influence, but go above and beyond to make it its own heavy, crushing entity."
–Noisey

"Frantic, feedback-riddled post-hardcore... noisy, squalling forward momentum..."
–Decibel

"Driftoff is a new band featuring members of Junius, Rosetta, and City of Ships... Heavy, soaring post-hardcore that sounds like Hot Water Music going through a big Hum phase... It doesn't just sound like a side project though, this is pretty killer stuff. "
–BrooklynVegan

"Ripping... earnest, angular '90s-ish post-hardcore"

–MetalSucks

"Driftoff combines talents from Junius, Rosetta and City of Ships, all names that are downright seminal in their own fields... Long story short, this is both new and traditional, fresh and yet wholly recognizable. Get excited for this release."
–Heavy Blog Is Heavy

"Massive sounds... Absolutely mesmerizing."
–American Aftermath
