One of my favorite bands going today is the batshit-crazy Retox, a noisy punk band led by some of the most creative minds in the genre, whose 2015 album Beneath California was one of my favorites of the year. So I was excited to catch up with guitarist Michael Crain (who also plays in the new project Dead Cross with Dave Lombardo and Justin Pearson) and bassist Ryan Bergmann at their show last week at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn to talk about how they achieve their unique sound.

Retox are wrapping up their Summer US tour with Silent and He Whose Ox is Gored. Catch em at one of the last shows!

September 13 – Des Moines, IA @ Vaudeville Mews
September 14 – Denver, CO @ Hi Dive
September 16 – San Diego, CA @ Soda Bar **

**He Whose Ox is Gored will not be appearing on these dates
