Florida Man Join Spartan Records

Share “Wet Brain” Music Video

Reissued s/t Debut Album Available Now
w/ Bonus Track

New Album Coming In 2019

Charleston, South Carolina noise punk agitators, Florida Man, have joined the Spartan Records roster. Spartan has reissued the band’s self-titled debut full-length with new artwork and a bonus track. To celebrate the team-up Florida Man have shared their new music video for album standout “Wet Brain.”

Florida Man‘s sound is a tangle of pummeling guitars and howled vocals that captures the combined spirits of the most iconic noise rock and post-hardcore scenes of the past. TheFlorida Man LP packs the razor sharp riffing of San Diego (Hot Snakes, No Knife), the sheer power of Seattle (Botch, These Arms Are Snakes), and the unbridled creativity of Washington DC (Fugazi, Faraquet)–all filtered through the band’s unique brand of sweat-soaked southern grime, and topped with a dose of full-on hardcore aggression provided by Jim O’Connor’s gravel-throated vocals. It’s a formidable debut and a taste of what’s to come as the band continues to plumb the depths of human strangeness with a new album on the way in 2019. 

Florida Man‘s sound may be as unnerving as a Google search of their band name, but their roaring music and fascination with the bleaker side of life comes from much more natural origins. Made up of O’Connor on vocals, guitarist Andrew Barnes, bassist CJ DeLuca, and drummer Jonathan Peace, Florida Man‘s members are all longtime friends and collaborators from the southeastern punk and hardcore scenes. Barnes had spent years playing drums in other bands and was reacquainting himself with guitar after the end of his most recent project, and as the riffs began to pile up he turned to his like-minded friends and fans of all things distorted and aggressive. The name Florida Man was chosen as a tribute to the underbelly that often inspired them sonically and lyrically, and before long their raucous live show had spawned a substantial local following and even led to the band performing at Hopscotch Music Festival. Now as part of the Spartan Records family Florida Man are gearing up for a big 2019 with a new full-length and heavy touring on the horizon.
