They started Mental Distress in 2013 and the goal has always been to write political songs against all types of discriminations, while keeping the fun side of hardcore punk. Quite soon they recorded our first demo tape, started playing everywhere they could. End of 2015 they changed their bassist before recording a 7” split with their friends from Ed Warner, and an EP along the same lines. Mid 2017 is quite an important moment for the band, as their singer comes out as a trans dude, and they have the opportunity to make their first “real” european tour. Then they took a whole year to concentrate ourselves on the writing of their first LP, and to let hormones do their job on their singer’s voice.
This LP is different than their other records. A fair amount of their texts are now in french, because it’s easier to express their feelings without having to go through the translation stage. Of course the voice changed a lot, making their music less fast but more understandable, though they still love angry music.
