You don’t find many bands named after 18th-century libertarian writers. But Boston’s Junius is. The progressive rockers have just signed with Prosthetic Records, and have been called “a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and the Smiths” by Rolling Stone.
I would liken them to Cave In on severe downers. Makes sense, seeing the’ve been around since 2003. They’ve previously released shit on Radar Recordings and The Mylene Sheath.
The band will soon get to work on their third full-length this spring. These dudes have toured with everyone from Tombs and Mastodon to Orbs and Bad Religion.
It’s not metal as such, and you may be asking yourself, “But, why would I want to listen to something that isn’t metal?” Glad you asked; because if you want to eradicate popular opinion that we can be a close-minded bunch, you need to broaden those horizons. The band is worth checking out. Plus, they’re on Prosthetic Records…and how many awesome bands has that label helped launch?
“We’ve been excited about working with Prosthetic since meeting most of the guys in L.A. on tour last year,” says the band in a statement. “We’re grateful that we seem to have good luck in finding people who are equally passionate, motivated and most importantly, believe in what we’re doing enough to commit their time and effort to allow us to continue doing what we love to do. We’re definitely looking forward to some very exciting and interesting years ahead!”
