When the lyrics of an album open up with “Burn your Bibles and Toras” you know shit’s probably about to get a little dark. And with the Austin-based gypsy punk band The Schisms, the vibe of their new album Moon isn’t so much dark like macabre, more mischievous and spooky and … a little sexy. Vibes the group are able to articulate across nine tracks of rock ‘n’ roll that
teeter across a spectrum of genres including straight-forward- bluesy American rock in the vein of Queens of the Stone Age, Misfits-inspired horror-punk and rockabilly. The record is pretty awesome and you can guarantee they’ll be playing a few of the new tracks at The Mix this Saturday. With Lloronas, Rivers Want and The Cold Tonys.
