Zlam Dunk


San Marcos TX




Hailing from Austin, Texas, ZLAM DUNK is not your run of the mill band from the indie rock mecca. They combine punchy guitar jabs, garage rock crudeness and punk energy that seems like it's ingested about 5 packs of Pixie Sticks. Channeling the rhythmic thrust of At the Drive In with the broodiness of Fugazi and a little bit of menacing pep ala Husker Du, ZLAM DUNK is a bubbling stew of rock fury which sheds and slays simultaneously. Drawing lyrical inspiration from a multitude of areas be it 80's movies and all things "gnarly and shred tastic", ZLAM DUNK has shared the stage with the likes of Fang Island, Foxy Shazam, Touche Amore, Har Mar Superstar, Good Old War, Holy Fuck and even opened up for Paul Wall on their third show ever! ZLAM DUNK is not meant to be heard but to be felt as well. A surefire band capturing all that is rowdy, energetic and uncontrollable in music, brace yourself for what is the punk rock/audible equivalent of garage rock and post hardcore's child having just downed a case of Four Loko. - Solid PR "At The Drive-In meets Daft Punk" - Austin American Statesman "The Rapture meets This Moment in Black History" - PartyEnds "Dripping with energy" - QuirkyNYC "Epic" - Alternative Press "Small-town kids looking to start a big-city fire" - "The best display of dance-infusing, punk-edged math rock I’ve ever encountered" - The Record Rebellion "They melted faces... very intense" - KnuckleRumbler
