NOMADS + Mass Appeal

"Since their inception, LA's Nomads have offered a particularly harsh brand of hardcore punk. Now the outfit are leveling up with their latest release, Love It or Leave It... The record reiterates their themes of drugs, conflict, and cop hate with a vicious insistence... The honesty and intentionality of Nomads will hit you in the face like a two by four... It's raw and it's good."
–Mass Appeal

"In translating his life into a band, [Nomads frontman 'Mocaine'] has given LA punk rock an updated version of N.W.A."

–LA Weekly

"One band in LA that are down to use their sound as a weapon of change is Nomads... A sharp d-beat blade."

–CVLT Nation 

"Distorted-as-fuck... Full-sprint into the fray..."
–Metal Injection


LA hardcore punk extremists Nomads deliver the second new song off their upcoming full-length debut, Love It or Leave It. Stream "Too Little, Too Late" now, exclusively via Mass Appeal:

Nomads' sound takes the galloping beats and crusty riffs of Discharge and relocates it to the streets of LA. Frontman Mocaine's lyrics tell violent tales of LA life, inspiring hometown paper LA Weekly to brand the band as an "LA punk rock version of N.W.A."

Produced by Taylor Young (Nails, Xibalba) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Magudergrind, Full of Hell), Love It or Leave It comes out April 22nd on Melotov Records.
