Washington, D.C.’s Loud Boyz are “fast, loud, and one hell of a racket, with hints of early hardcore and more recent garage punk” (Brooklyn Vegan). A staple of the mid-Atlantic region, they've played as direct support for bands like The Buzzcocks, Dag Nasty, Marky Ramone, and Darkest Hour at venues including D.C.’s 9:30 Club and Black Cat, NJ’s The Stone Pony, and NYC’s Gramercy Theatre. Band members Brandon Brown, Alex Anderson, Devin O'Donoghue, Rory Sheridan, and Mitchell West play aggressive hardcore punk rock and aren’t afraid to crack a smile while doing it.
The band's first EP was released on D.C. imprint Cricket Cemetery in January 2015, followed by a full length LP, Tough Love, Hard Feelings, in July 2015. Their new self-released EP, Party in the USA, will be released on May 5, 2017.
