A whole lot of noise is coming to 9:30 Club on Wednesday, Dec. 18 — a whole lotta noise *rock* that is. Noise rockers Daughters and Health share a bill for us to get all contemplative yet dancey just a week before Christmas.
Daughters, the Rhode Island based noise outfit, returned with their new album, You Won’t Get What You Want, late last year. The album quickly became a favorite of music lovers and critics, with inclusion on best of 2018 lists from NPR, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone, who said: “If heavy music is supposed to be scary, Daughters have elevated it to an invigorating new level.”
Daughters’s live shows are outrageously fun with a great communal crowd!

Los Angeles noise rockers Health continue to tour in support of their latest LP, VOL. 4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR, released in February via Loma Vista Recordings.
From their twitchy 2007 debut, through their groundbreaking 2012 score for Rockstar Games’ Max Payne 3 and Grand Theft Auto V’s original “High Pressure Dave,” to 2015’s acclaimed LP DEATH MAGIC, the L.A. band snuck beauty and rigor into blinding noise. They draped moody violence over trap beats and warehouse raves alike.
Few artists were better prepared to confront the confusion of life in 2019. With their new album Vol. 4: Slaves of Fear, the trio has not only made the heaviest, most genre-obliterating album of their career. They’ve documented just how frightening it feels to be alive right now. Vol. 4: Slaves of Fear uses every tool in contemporary production to make a terrifying, exhilarating LP. But beneath all of that, Vol. 4: Slaves of Fear also has some of the most vulnerable and evocative songwriting of Health’s career. In the lyrics, singer Jake Duzsik confronts death, isolation, and hopelessness with an uncommon candor and intimacy.
“Through the medium of abrasive beats and tortured, explosive synth textures the band tackle the world’s uneasy conscience, resulting in a remarkably cathartic listen,” said The Line of Best Fit in awarding Vol. 4: Slaves of Fear 8/10 stars.
