Obacha are from Squamish, B.C., Canada and Skuff are from Kamloops, B.C., Canada. Both bands playing absolutely pumelling yet quirky fastcore / powerviolence. Major influences and musical comparisons for both could be identified as most early Westcoast and Slap-A-Ham powerviolence, such Capitalist Casualties, Infest, Neanderthal, Lack of Interest and to a lesser degree, Crossed Out and No Comment. Mixing this with the goofiness / spastic nonsense of newer fastcore is then more or less what they resemble or replicate - and they do it very well!
Anyway, this is not the first time Obacha will be on tour - they've done some mini-tours in Canada as far as I know - but this is the first tour experience for Skuff and the first time either will be touring in the states. Although both are not terribly new bands, they're still pretty unknown, so please make the effort to go out and see these awesome bands.
Please help these dudes out with booking if you can by contacting them at their respective page or at: obacha AT hotmail DOT CA and harrisondempsey3 AT gmail DOT COM. Dates obviously subject to some change.
