The Messthetics Share Single “Drop Foot”

D.C.’s The Messthetics is set to release its sophomore release, Anthropocosmic Nest (Dischord) next month on September 6, 2019. The band, made up of Anthony Pirog, Joe Lally, and Brendan Canty, recorded their eponymously titled debut last year to critical acclaim. Today, the Messthetics share its second track, “Drop Foot.” 

Recorded at the band’s practice space throughout 2019, Anthropocosmic Nest more perfectly captures the trio’s current live dynamic, complete with improvisational tangents, playful experimentation, and cathartic sprawl

While the band only played a handful of shows in support of the debut album, this fall the band will head out on tour once again, including a number of shows in Texas as well as their first trip to Australia, where they’ll perform alongside The Mark of Cain. Dates are listed below.
