Noise Rock/Mathcore legends 'Daughters' could easily be considered one of the best live performances in heavy music. With unparalleled chaos and energy they led a packed crowd at House of Independents in Asbury Park, NJ. The band was formed in 2002 in Providence, RI and have released four studio albums including the mathcore masterpiece Hell Songs in 2005. Their latest release, You Won't Get What You Want, brings a notably more atmospheric tone while maintaining the brute power and unpredictable nature that have become their trademark while cranking the wall of noise up to 11. Awe inspiring to say the least, their unique blend of technical shredding and brutal, droning noise is a captivating spectacle that is not to be missed. Catch them on tour this fall at the dates below.
