Idle Hands

Montreal's new-age punk outfit NOBRO debut full-length record Set Your Pussy Free via Dine Alone Records, a caustic, celebratory, glorious party-punk firework show. It’s a record about the ecstatic pursuit of personal escape and liberation even as the walls are closing in, a 21st century power-punk analog of Born To Run that rages against modern life’s restrictive pressures and dares them to a game of chicken.

“As a musician or artist or even a woman, you have to throw off the weight of societal pressures and expectations, especially as you get older,” says vocalist and bassist McCaughey. “You have to take risks and chances.”

Produced by Dave Schiffman, Set Your Pussy Free is the culmination of years of work, hundreds of shows, and thousands of miles since the band’s creation in 2014. McCaughey, Carbonneau, Bourdage, and Dion have been building NOBRO into one of the most fierce and exciting bands in Canada.

Listeners big and small have been taking note: Iggy Pop played their track on his BBC Radio 6 show and the band has supported blink-182, PUP, Alexisonfire, Fidlar, The OBGMs, & soon Flogging Molly.

They're just getting started, don't say we didn't warn you!
