Pennsylvanian punk outfit Moistboyz will be celebrating the unleashing their of fifth release, Moistboyz V after a seven year wait. Past touring versions of Moistboyz have included members of Ween and the Sound of Urchin and the current live line-up will consist of Guy and Mickey joined by Mondo Generator bassist Nick Olivieri and drummer Michael “Hoss” Wright, along with guitarist Stephen Haas, who mixed the new album. The new album was recorded late last year in New Hope, PA with additional recording done early 2013 in Lago Vista,TX produced and engineered by Mickey Melchiondo. Moistboyz V is being released on Neverman Records distributed by MVD Audio Tuesday, November 5. I’m hoping you’ll consider advancing their show with a feature, album review or advance blurb. Please let me know if you need the music.
As on prior outings, most songs are vintage punk and metal in tenor marrying vocalist Guy Heller’s stream-of-consciousness lyrics to ass-whup riffing and ferocious lead work from multi-instrumentalist Mickey Melchiondo (Ween). But on Moistboyz V they also address other musical styles including country-tinged folk rock on songs like “Down OnThe Farm” and “My Time To Die.” Special guests include Chuck Treece on drums on “Protect and Serve,” “Medusa,” “Garbageman” and Joe Kramer on guitar on “Protect and Serve,” “Chickendick”, “Down on the Farm,” and “My Time to Die.”
Founded in 1992 by Heller and Melchiondo, Moistboyz have recorded and released one EP (Moistboyz I), three full albums (Moistboyz II, III & IV), multiple singles and a live concert DVD devoted to their patented brand of punk and metal flavored rock and roll.
