Sheer Mag

New Track: "Can't Stop Fighting" - Sheer Mag

Sheer Mag have a new single, which they recently shared, entitled "Can't Stop Fighting." The song tackles the subject of violence and degredation directed towards women, and calls out those who idly standby, allowing it to happen. It's a battle cry that draws the line, waging war against a growing concern happening throughout the world.

Tonight, PhilaMOCA will be hosting another rad sold-out show, presented by R5 Productions, with a rare appearance by lauded Sydney garage-rock quartet Royal Headache, who just released an excellent new album entitled High (What’s Your Rapture?).

Stay for the Long Haul w/Sheer Mag at Second Empire Aug. 5

With riffs that heat up in short explosive dashes meeting up with that rough-and-tumble backend and those vocals that ache and roar in a passionately committed display, that’s what Sheer Mag does. Tonight, as they prepare for a slate of tour dates, they’re at Second Empire, ready to unleash a tenacious, unrelenting brand of garage rock that rips, wails and stays with you for the long haul. A trio of Toronto-based punk bands are also on the docket, including the hardcore blitz of Mocoso, the garage-punk of Tonkapuma, and VCR, whom released a new EP 3D last week. Austin Latin-punk hybrid Detestados round out a lineup that’ll certainly curb that midweek attitude and gear you toward the week’s end.

Sheer Mag Opening for Ex Hex at Union Transfer April 26

Because they just couldn't fit everyone who wanted to get rowdy for South Philly outfit Sheer Mag and all-female punk trio Ex Hex at Boot and Saddle, the show has been moved to Union Transfer. If you’ve ever seen Sheer Mag live and felt the infectious energy, the move isn’t a shocker. The group's shows are loud, sweaty, and even lead singer Christina Halladay has been known to be a star in a mosh pit. Their debut 2014 EP 7” and subsequent shows at the Farm and the Golden Tea House have earned them a dedicated fanbase that rarely misses the opportunity to scream lyrics back at them, even during all the chaos. Their second four-track EP II that was released earlier this month rips with the same raw angst that the band is known for, but elevates it with more of those punchy melodies and riffs that can be heard on their debut, like on the catchy, feel-good single, “Fan the Flames,” which they recently shared their first music video for (below). Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8:30, $15, All Ages (Photo by Amanda Hatfield) - Emily DiCicco


New Sheer Mag EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Deli Philly’s 2014 Best Emerging Artist Poll Winners, Sheer Mag have released their second batch of songs, aptly titled II 7”, via Wilsuns RC/Katorga Works. Performing this Sunday on a billing that also includes A.M. Mills and Ex Hex at Union Transfer, the group continues to impress, balancing gritty, rifftastic rock fortified by assertive, attitude-dripping vocals. Get hooked! (Photo by Reed Dunlea)
