Cables & Arms is a post-hardcore/punk band formed in the winter of 2013 in San Francisco, CA.
A handful of demos, three EPs, a 7" record and three years of shows later, Cables & Arms released their first full-length album, Framing Defeat For the Critical Eye. Described by Ear To the Ground Music as one of "the more aggressively confident and destructive bands on the entire left coast," the band was in light rotation on SiriusXM's Jason Ellis Show after emerging at the top of an Unsigned Bands segment in April, 2015 (with the song Setup, on the Bygone EP). Cables & Arms subsequently signed to Wiretap Records in March 2016.
Recorded and mixed by Willie Samuels (Green Day, Breathe In) at the now-defunct Studio Trilogy in San Francisco, and mastered by Dan Coutant (Jawbox, Coliseum) at Sun Room Audio, Framing Defeat For the Critical Eye showcases the band's talent for making aggressive sounding songs accessible to a wider audience through melody and good old-fashioned catchiness.
Cables & Arms returned to the studio to record a new EP due for release Summer 2020.
