Label: Hex Records
Tracks: 12

Ex-Breathers is a three piece band from Tallahassee, Florida who formed in 2011.  Ex-Breathers play a tense, discordant, and dirty as hell sounding style of music that seamlessly melds equal parts hardcore, punk, post punk, and noise rock in their sound.  Musically, Ex-Breathers can be said to draw inspiration from a variety of sources of underground such as the driving hardcore of bands such as Drive Like Jehu or Hot Snakes, the violent unpredictability of bands like Swing Kids or Blood Brothers, or  the post punk leanings of bands such as Pissed Jeans.  Tying the band's sound together in a tight package is a dark, dirty, and negative undercurrent, which keeps Ex-Breather's sound exciting, refreshing, an unpredictable.  I've been fortunate to be able to watch this band progress since first being ask to review them back when Elementary Revolt was active.  Past Tense is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Hex records on August 1st, 2015.  On Past Tense, Ex-Breathers offer up twelve tracks of tense and discordant hardcore, punk, post punk, and noise rock bliss that's an absolute must listen for fans of early 31G San Diego style hardcore, discordant hardcore, post punk, and noise rock.  Overall, this is a killer LP and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
