What It Sounds Like: Husker Dü, Black Flag, Rites Of Spring, R.E.M, Bob Mould’s sweat dripping all over the place.

Giving the opening song on your debut album the same title as your band name is bold. You’re basically declaring that song as your mission statement, your whole aesthetic captured in one track. Luckily, Hoax Hunters’ “Hoax Hunters” is enough to get the job done...

The band for sure wear their influences on their sleeve thorough a combination of ’80s SST, early ’90s Dischord, and mid-’90s Merge, but it all shows through in the songwriting, unforced on the listener.

The Richmond trio’s debut album is a rousing treat; fast-paced guitars, vocal lines you want to sing along to and its all wrapped in a warm and comfortable blanket of scuzz and great melodies.

Richmond threesome Hoax Hunters with its debut long-player has created an expansive, divergent set of punk-worshipping monoliths, each tune shaping an American post-hardcore lineage into formalized and nostalgic architectural shapes. The electrifying new set, Comfort & Safety, firmly establishes the trio as a noisy, squalling force, one that is both more informed and more nubile [HEY NOW -- Ed.] than many of its peers.

Hoax Hunters make gloriously noisy pop rock ’n’ roll. Consisting of guitarist and vocalist P.J. Sykes, drummer James O’Neill and bassist Ben Nicastro, this local trio offers a catchy amalgamation of 1980s indie, emo and punk tendencies.

They're headed back to the studio in early 2017 to work on their third album.
