PLOSIVS, featuring John Reis (Hot Snakes / Rocket From The Crypt / Drive Like Jehu), Rob Crow (Pinback), Atom Willard (Against Me!) and Jordan Clark (Mrs. Magician), recently dropped, their self-titled debut album, which is now available via Swami Records. recorded in October 2020 with engineer Ben Moore, PLOSIVS is a new sound created in the “distance rock” movement that was born during a year of cancelled tours, postponed record releases and a vast horizon of unemployment. “I feel we started this group when we did to push back against an overwhelming sense of uncertainty, confusion, loss and sadness. The bummer needed an opposition,” said Reis. “For me, the antidote always begins with the electric guitar.”

Despite the fact, PLOSIVS is a new band, Vocalist/guitarist Rob Crow is known for being in Pinback, Heavy Vegetable, Thingy, Physics and hundreds more, Atom Willard has played with Against Me!, Rocket From The Crypt, Angels And Airwaves, and many more. Jordan Clark played bass with Mrs. Magician and guitar for The Frights and The Soaks. And prior to PLOSIVS, guitarist John Reis was and is Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt, Night Marchers, The Sultans.

Together, they independently isolated during what then seemed like the height of the pandemic (October 2020). After a short duration of ideas passed back and forth, they convened as a group for the very first time at Singing Serpent Studio in San Diego with Ben Moore at the controls and recorded this 10-song self-titled record.
