ZEITGEIST - Demo - Tape - 2011
I just got back from tour. Like all tours, there were some low points and there were some high points. One of the low points was our show in Pittsburgh. The show itself was pretty great (for all the other bands), but we played badly and there was so much band tension that you could cut it with a knife. We were giving off bad vibes a mile wide. The drummer of ZEITGEIST traded tapes with me either because he felt sorry for us or actually liked the crappy six-song set that we played to a room quarter-filled with bored hardcore kids. Either way, I'm glad we traded tapes because when his band took the stage, they completely erased my negative mood and made me want to jump up and down (even though I sorta bobbed side to side in the back of the room). ZEITGEIST plays driving, melodic punk that sounds raw and fresh and can fall into the newly coined category of "Knuckle-Draggin Rock" (coined by Cinque). The energy of their live show was invigorating and they were easily the best band of the night for me...which is saying a lot since they were followed by ICON GALLERY and CROSS-STITCHED EYES. I don't know much else about this band besides that they are new and that they are from Pittsburgh. Enjoy this rough-ass recording and order their tape.

The third song is cut off a little at the beginning because that's how it was on the tape
