Honduras have been on our radar as well as being on our favorite up-and-coming bands since we heard their Break EP back in 2014, so you can say it’s infatuation growing on love.
Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras’ early material. Inspired by late ’70s punk but incorporating aspects of garage and indie, Honduras have been playing the Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. Josh Wehle (drums) and Paul Lizarraga (bass) round out the band’s signature polished edge.
Their more recent writing has added elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks, making them all the more lively and raucous.
Honduras will release a brand new EP, Gathering Rust, in March 2016 (which is perfect timing for our favorite festival, SXSW). The band will hit the road for a full year of touring the U.S. and Europe.
