When we get a show with ex-member credentials like this stacked bill, we realize how truly lucky RVA can be! This hardcore/screamo/post-grind bill is headed up by two amazing STRANGE MATTER debuts from acts who've played here in the past with prior projects and who we're happy to welcome back with their newest ones. SUPER UNISON is a trio from Oakland fronted by Meghan O'Neil (ex-Punch) and includes ex-members of Snowing. They blend elements of classic screamo, grind and punk to form a sound all their own and are on the mighty DEATHWISH INC. They'll be joined by DC's Nø MAN, featuring all 3 members of Majority Rule performing an updated take on their classic powerviolence/emo/grind sound with the addition of vocalist Maha Shami to add more layers and depth beyond the typical sounds you may expect. Locally we've got the amazing dark and brooding punk sounds of up-and-comers SENSUAL WORLD who feature members both current and ex from Bad Magic, Kommunion, Lipid, Sow.

Super Unison
Oakland, CA trio Super Unison features Meghan O’Neil Pennie (formerly of PUNCH) on bass and vocals, Justin Renninger (formerly of Snowing) on drums, and Kevin DeFranco on guitar. Formed in 2014, they released a self-titled EP on vinyl and cassette formats soon after. The EP was incredibly well-received and praised by publications far and wide, from Rolling Stone to Brooklyn Vegan. The band toured the western portion of the USA following the EP’s release, which included shows with Shook Ones, Self Defense Family, Coliseum, Dogs on Acid and more. As veterans of the Bay Area scene and beyond, Super Unison have become known for their incendiary live show in their relatively short time as a band thus far.
NØ Man
Longtime hardcore fans were pleasantly surprised by Majority Rule's recent run of reunion shows, but fewer noticed that all three members have started a new band with Michel’s partner Maha Shami fronting it called NØ MAN. The band is not as ominous and brooding as Majority Rule tended to be, but instead swings for a faster, punkier sound. It also does something the late 90s/early 2000s screamo was embarrassingly delinquent about: It gives a woman the goddamn microphone.
