Sellout: Barreling Out the Gate With Rough, Gritty Punk

CALGARY – Sellout is the old-school modern punk band that the late ‘80s worshipper in you has been waiting for. Combining their love for grunge classics by Nirvana with their collective history in musical theater, previous bands, and music studies, Sellout has the incredibly unique sound. Case in point: the three-track demo on Bandcamp features poppy and repetitive riffs as the welcome mat to their funhouse that drags you in, quickly distorting into rough, gritty noise that emulates the wicked and twisted mirrors within.

The band makes music for the sake of making music, it’s their band and they’re not catering to anyone, and they sound like it.  So, we asked lead vocalist Sarah, why do you play? Who do you play for?

“We’re just having fun. I’m having a friggin’ blast,” she responds.

The “friggin blast” is contagious and ready to spread. The band has already graced the stage at the sold-out Bat Sabbath (the Cancer Bats alter-ego side project that does Black Sabbath covers) show, wowing the crowds with their tight, cohesive assault.

The band’s plan is to release a series of EPs, starting with the late May release of their five track, self-titled offering.

“It’s going to be a little more rock ‘n’ roll,” she says of the recording.

“It’s still going to have that grit, just a little groovier.”

And if that doesn’t get you excited enough for the month, the band will also be playing the third rendition of Moments Fest, the all-ages, multi genre music festival out in Siksika Nation on Saturday, May 20. Also featuring Calgary based acts No More Moments, Napalmpom, Shark Weak, River Jacks, Knife Dogs, and over a dozen other bands, it starts at three p.m. and runs all day at the Siksika Community Centre. Tickets are 15 dollars in advance, and this year the event features a newly minted second stage, dubbed the CJSW 90.9 FM stage. If you’re unable to make the drive out to see that, you’ll definitely be able to catch their full set over at the Calgary station on the 31 of May, so be sure to leave your dial on the FM frequency!

Sellout performs May 20 at the third rendition of Moments Fest (Siksika Nation). Their five track EP will be released in May, you can find it online at https://selloutpunk.bandcamp.com/.
