The Absurd is a true power trio, firing off catchy hooks and thunderous riffs with equal potency. Originating from Detroit, but based in Los Angeles, the band is known for their explosive live show.
They've "melted the paint of the walls at just about every club in L.A." and have been featured on the main stage for Long Beach Gay Pride 2018, as well as Echo Park Rising 2017 & 2018. Their debut full-length, the cheekily titled "Build the Wall", was released in October of 2018 to rave reviews, meriting inclusion in multiple end-of-year lists.
"Their debut album 'Build the Wall' is ... a conflagration of heavy psychedelia that sees Foerg caterwauling over the daunting muscle-flexing of his rhythm section. The band has adopted the slogan 'Make America Absurd Again,' but the album, produced by Joshua Martinez (Rosechild), thunders with serious intent and political overtones. The title track 'Build the Wall' gnaws away at your comfort zone while Foerg bemoans 'sordid ideology,' then exploding in gale-force noise, as if a blast of guitar could blow red hats off heads and into the abyss. If only." - Kevin Bronson,
"These guys are obviously L.A.’s best kept secret. Build the Wall is a string of raucous, but instantly catchy grunge songs with a clear message and a firm middle finger to the fascist agenda rising in America." - Henrik Thogersen, Hollywood Metal
"Truly one of a kind. The most original sound I’ve ever heard from a rock band." - Buzz Music
