Big Ups Biography

Brendan Finn, Joe Galarraga, Amar Lal, and Carlos Salguero Jr. met whilst learning about specifications of Cat 5 cables in New York City. Shortly after, they formed a band. Big Ups – since 2010 – blend punk, post-punk, metal, and indie rock into a salty mash that gets stuck to the roof of your mouth. At their brightest, they have been likened to The Descendents, but at their sludgiest, they call to mind bands like Pissed Jeans and The Jesus Lizard.Big Ups released their debut 11-track LP, Eighteen Hours of Static (Dead Labour/Tough Love Records) in the beginning of 2014. Since the album's release, Big Ups have been touring in the United States and Europe - playing lots of shows and never really getting a good night sleep. In July 2014, Big Ups took an extended nap and somehow woke up in THUMP Studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. They decided to try to record a few new songs, and - despite the band's grogginess- they actually finished the recordings. These new songs were released on 7" vinyl - as a split with Washer via Exploding in Sound Records and the band's own ECB&B imprint in the US on November 18th and as Rash b/w Not Today via Tough Love Records in Europe on October 27th.Content: http://www.groundcontroltouring.com/artists/big-ups
