Dirty Fences (USA)
Dirty Fences is a band from NYC made up of musicians who know how to play their instruments, write timeless songs and have a blast while doing it. if you think rock n' roll is dead, get ready for your world to be flipped off its axis.
Bassist/vocalist Max Comaskey, vocalist/guitarist Jack Daves and drummer/vocalist Max Hiersteiner began playing together while attending high school in Boston and in 2009 they moved to Brooklyn and recruited Max Roseglass on guitar/vocals. Dirty Fences refer to themselves as a gang and that mentality is evident in every razor sharp riff and perfectly executed harmony that evokes early American rock and punk acts such as Red Kross, MC5, Johnny Thunders, The Ramones and The Stooges.
However those names are just reference points because what Dirty Fences is doing is truly unique and moreover it's rambunctious, melodic, fun and dangerous…
"We like a lot of music that happened during a certain era but we're also a product of the world we live in and I think both of those aspects play into our sound equally," Roseglass explains.
Then there's the live show, which is a raucous explosion of riffs, energy and enthusiasm that makes every DIY venue feel like an arena. "It's a party onstage and we have the entire crowd going completely insane then we'll bring it down for a minute to get everyone's attention before we bring it back and knock everyone on the floor again," Comaskey explains.
Ultimately it's the world that has to conform to Dirty Fences, not the other way around. "If you go to a show to hear useless banter, tuning guitars and all that bullshit don't come to our shows because we're not going to give you enough time to breathe," Hiersteiner summarizes. "We dive in and we'll be underwater the whole time, leaving you gasping for breath."
