SPY is Peter on vocals, Drew and Cody on guitars, Thomas on bass, and Cole on drums. The darling quintet hailing from the notorious and celebrated Bay Area, a spot known for producing kingship bands like genre-associates Gulch and World Peace. What’s in the water, San Jose?
The group is best suited to fans of hardcore punk, a genre they used to self-identify when asked. There is no question this descriptor is accurate with werring guitars supporting vicious, detached, straight-forward vocals. Cole on drums has me feeling like I’m marching into war, and ready for it.
SPY recently finished up their very first European tour, a much deserved honor. I watched closely and with incredible jealousy as they moved from city to city. The energy looked wild in each and every packed, dark room they graced.
