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."
The song appears on Nomads' upcoming debut full-length
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."

"In translating his life into a band, [Nomads frontman 'Mocaine'] has given LA punk rock an updated version of N.W.A."
"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,
"One band in LA that are down to use their sound as a weapon of change is Nomads... A sharp d-beat blade."
"Distorted-as-fuck... Full-sprint into the fray..."
