CUSTODY BATTLE: Self-titled: 10”

Flagstaff, AZ’s Custody Battle come out of nowhere, swinging with both fists. It’s catchy-punk violence to infinity and back. Wild, off-kilter songs with maximum shredditude. Silk-screened covers, hand stamped labels, self-recorded, self-released (?), this is “DIY or DIE” in the flesh. This is Arizonafied San Pedro punk played by weirdoes for weirdoes. Bizarre house party ruckus played by guys who have probably spent a decent amount of time playing in straight-up metal bands. The surprise band of the summer. Get into it.
