NOMADS + Bloody-Disgusting

Los Angeles punks Nomads reveal their latest single today via horror authority Bloody-Disgusting – a ripping cover of The Sisters of Mercy's 1987 goth classic "Lucretia, My Reflection."

Listen, here:

The song appears on Nomads' upcoming debut full-length Love It or Leave It, out April 22nd on Melotov Records. The album was produced by Taylor Young (Nails, Xibalba) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Magudergrind, Full of Hell).

While Nomads' sound is mostly a hurricane of brutal, Discharge-descended punk, the band pulls off a thoroughly epic version of "Lucretia" – no gimmick, this goth anthem is played from the heart. In frontman Mocaine's words, "This is one of the best songs ever written... An undeniable banger."


Nomads, live:
Apr 15 - Los Angeles, CA @ Echoplex w/ American Nightmare
Apr 16 - Berkeley, CA @ 924 Gilman w/ The Trouble

Jun 5 - Pomona, CA @ The Glasshouse w/ Discharge, Eyehategod

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

–LA Weekly

"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

"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
