Suffolk punks record new EP
SUDBURY hardcore punks The Domestics are hitting the studio to record a new six-track EP.
The band, made up of lead singer James Domestic, bass player Rhodes, guitarists Ted Mint and Ed Ache and drummer Chris D.C, have had a busy year having already released an album in February called Keep it Lean.
But James says the band have plenty more material up their sleeves for the studio.
He said: “We are kind of taking our foot off the gigging pedal at the moement although we do still have a few gigs coming up.
“We released our album in February but are now working on this six track EP which will be out in November hopefully.
“To be honest we have a large pool of songs now.
“We always have loads of songs on the back burner.
“Because we are recording we are trying to keep our gigs in East Anglia until we have finished the job.”
Although The Domestics have been hard at work in the studio, they still have gigs lined up at the Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds on September 15, at the Royal Oak in Sudbury on September 22 and on October 7 they are appearing at the A-Punk-Alypse event in Ipswich.
The band then go on tour in November with Basingstoke punk band Just Add Monsters.
James, who started the band after moving from Essex to Sudbury five years ago, said he was suprised how far the band have come in just a year.
He said: “I didn’t really know any musicans when I moved here so I put an advert in a local shop.
“That is how I met our bass player Rhodes and the other band members came in soon after that.
“We had our first full rehearsal for a festival we were playing on July 8 last year.
“It is weird we have only been going a year as we’ve been so busy.
“It has all gone so quickly.”
