There are few bands that truly transcend genre, but on their debut album, RXPTRS can lay claim to doing exactly that. Formed in Bristol, UK in 2018, the quintet blend rock, metal, punk and hardcore with a seamlessness that is enviable, creating something that is unique that seethes with boundless energy. "We never approach anything with a genre or an audience in mind, it has to be what we're feeling in that moment. If it comes out punk, sick, if it sounds metal, awesome, if it doesn't sound like anything else, even better. Nothing's off the table," explains vocalist Simon Roach. "We all come from different backgrounds and have all been inspired by so many different genres, we wanted to hear a sound that mixed all those influences, so we thought, 'let's be that band'. I totally get that genres help steer people, but we don't want that stability. I feel like nothing great can come from a comfort zone."
