Throughout the years, Whores has grown grittier with attitude and crazier with their performances. The Atlanta noise rock trio formed in 2010. Lead singer and guitarist Christian Lembach brings forth his booming, screechy vocals that will make the lovers of underground music go crazy. The sludgy guitar tone is the most recognizable signature of the band created by a killer rig to make a gargantuan sound. Casey Maxwell sends fuzzy bass vibrations through your spine on his debut album with Whores on ‘Gold’. The resounding grooves are perfect for some hard moshing to excite the crowd. Donnie Adkinson, also making his debut on ‘Gold’, beats the hell out of the kit with lots of crashing cymbals and hard hitting on the snare. The band’s explosive sounds have took them out on the road with the likes of Red Fang, Melvins, Deafheaven, Kylesa, The Sword, and many more big names. Since the release of ‘Gold’ the band has seen a firestorm of media attention. Rolling Stone not only ranked ‘Gold’ as one of the top 20 albums of 2016 but also declared Whores a must see band. The band recently played the Chicago Open Air festival alongside bands like Ozzy Osbourne, Kiss, Body Count, Korn and Behemoth. They dominated the stage and was one of the most talked about bands of the day.
We had the opportunity to talk to all three members of Whores after their set. We talked about their upcoming shows, censorship in music and their instant cult classic album ‘Gold’.
