Whittier, CA rock n roll band Plague Vendor has a new album out today, BLOODSWEAT. Equal parts bluesy dance rock and punk, BLOODSWEAT invokes its own name as it unfurls. It’s an album edged with a sense of danger and vulnerability and “outlaw punk recklessness” according to LA Record. Nearly all of the eleven songs on BLOODSWEAT were heavily road-tested, imagined, and re-imagined live before ever making it into the studio. The foursome spent the last two years playing endless live shows, filling everywhere from backyard parties to clubs to festivals. Plague Vendor is the kind of band interested in simplicity and the sort of expressive nakedness that can come from stripping everything away.
Plague Vendor is fresh off a successful stint of SXSW shows and a tour with Prayers. Fans can catch Plague Vendor this May and June on an upcoming tour with the iconic Swedish hardcore band Refused.
