Behold the debut EP of ULTRAMANTIS BLACK, the hardcore punk band created to spread the gospel of professional wrestling champion ULTRAMANTIS BLACK (out next week on Relapse Records).  The band just unveiled a stream of the full EP (see Lambgoat debut)….

 

Having spent over a decade dominating the Chikara wrestling scene, ULTRAMANTIS teamed up with members of the beloved punk band Pissed Jeans to form a blistering political hardcore band that is equal parts The Locust, Deadguy and Melt Banana.  Imagine the best parts of 90s militant straight-edge hardcore filtered through the over the top theatrics of pro-wrestling and you have ULTRAMANTIS BLACK!

 

ULTRAMANTIS BLACK will be celebrating the release of the EP with two shows in Pennsylvania…

 

Jul. 11 Allentown, PA – LVAC (628 E Cedar St)

Jul. 24 Philadelphia, PA – Voltage Lounge (Relapse Records’ This Is Hardcore Afterparty)

Praise for Ultramantis Black:
“The tag team is a diving double foot stomp of political hardcore in the tradition of 90s militant straight-edge forbears.” – Noisey
“The transition from wrestling to rocking may seem like a dubious one, but the EP is slab of spastic punk as solid as UMB’s own abs.” – AV Club
“…a feral, unhinged form of hardcore…” – Stereogum
