With raucous performances at Riot Fest Toronto, Osheaga, Festival D’Ete, Ottawa BluesFest, Iceland Airwaves, SXSW, AfroPunk Festivals in Europe and gigs alongside the likes of Bad Brains, Anti-Flag, Saul Williams and more under their belt, the band returns in 2017 with a vengeance. Their self-titled album, re-mixed by the incomparable Dave Schiffman (Pup, The Bronx and more) is out now via Black Box, and is headlined by the infectious track “Torpedo”.
Blending a breadth of influences and renowned for their insane live performances, The OBGMs are a breath of fresh air in the rock and punk genres. This release finds the band expanding on the foundation they’ve build in Toronto, focusing their energy in the United States and Europe ahead of a new full-length album in 2018.
