If there is one thing that screams straight forward, good old American rock ‘n’ roll it’s New Jersey, amiright?
Next to “Rock ‘n’ Roll” in the dictionary is a picture of the great state of NJ. It’s true. Keeping with tradition, New Jersey natives The Moms are back with a new full length that will set your ears on fire. Their sophomore effort Doing Asbestos We Can packs a hefty punch of grungy punk into 14 tracks that is everything your album recorded in a basement heart could desire. After spending years on the road in an old beat up RV the trio took up residence together in a house to reconnect and assimilate back into the real world. They stayed in one place for a while, did the whole job thing and found inspiration for the their music. Doing Asbestos We Can was written as an ode to the balancing act of being in a band when the rest of your world isn’t. Keeping relationships, upholding support systems, staying in touch with the rest of your life is the timeless balancing act of anyone chasing the success of being a musician. Doing Asbestos We Can is an honest version of The Moms story through distorted guitars, grungy vocals. Grab a PBR, put your fist in the air and throw on this record.
