Philadelphia’s Javelina will be embarking on a tour in May in support of their self-titled Translation Loss debut, which is getting rave reviews from the likes of Decibel Magazine and Revolver!
Javelina (pronounced ha-va-lE-na) started crafting their massive sound in October of 2005. Formed by ex-members of Philadelphia bands Lickgoldensky, SMUT, and Otophobia/Endless Nightmare, they spent over a year honing their sound before playing their first show. Javelina’s sound embodies the massive sludgy nature of Buzzoven and Eyehategod with the raw punk intensity of His Hero Is Gone and the straightforward nature of High on Fire all wrapped up into one.
You can check out songs from Javelina’s self-titled debut, which came out March 4, here.
