With the loud ferocity of punk rock that swims in lush vocal melodies and is peppered with dirty psychedelia, Zip-Tie Handcuffs craft a huge sound for a power trio. The group is fresh off releasing their 4th LP, Sundream which The Ponsharden Collective hailed as “a complete belter of a punk rock album from beginning to end; it is a high-octane thrash adventure.”
Boston, MA based Zip-Tie have been ripping musical faces off since 2007. The gentleman responsible for this heavy aural assault are: Matt Ford (Vocals/Guitar), Ian Grinold (Vocals/Bass) and Max Levy (Vocals/Drums) previously of Boston’s own Bacchus King.
Recently voted to The Music Connection’s “Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artist” list for 2014, the band really rips on stage. “Zip-Tie Handcuffs let their musical fury carry the burden of converting new fans..their evident zeal for aural domination goes far in pulling in new listeners.” - (The Music Connection) Their sweet blend of beachy pop hooks, heavy fuzz and raw power keep audiences wide eyed and hungry for more.
The band is currently busy preparing for a live record, producing music videos for two more tracks off of recently released Sundream and fine tuning songs for a new full length record due out in Fall 2015.
