Hailing from Tacoma, Washington, NOi!SE is one of the flag bearers one of the new wave of Oi!. True to its name, NOi!SE’s boundless energy along with its unyielding message has allowed the band to build a feverish and devoted fanbase.
True to form, the band’s new full-length “The Real Enemy” is undoubtedly going to be hailed as a timeless (musical) social commentary. Its raucous sound, some equally profound lyrics, and a really spectacular and fitting layout, highlights what NOi!SE is all about. Complete with riveting drums, insane bass lines, great leads, and a true verbal assault, this album reinforces that these guys really have something important to say, and a unique and powerful way to deliver it!
Bringing in some friends to help with the barrage, the story gets even more colorful; with additional vocals on “SPD” by Gordy Carbone (THE FORGOTTEN), on “The War Inside” by THE INTERRUPTERS, and on the title track, “The Real Enemy”, by Al Barr (DROPKICK MURPHYS/THE BRUISERS). With so many voices helping NOi!SE sing and scream this new installment of their passionate manifesto, “The Real Enemy” is bound to make waves, and turn heads.
While touring full-time is pretty much off the table due to family obligations and Matt Henson’s role in the US Army, NOi!SE is certainly planning to back up this record with as many live shows, in as many places, as possible. Requests have been coming in droves. Plans to attack both US coasts, as well as Europe are coming together, and likely to surround the release, and flow well into 2017. Anyone who’s seen them live knows that this is reason enough to get excited – but just wait ’til you hear the record!!
