Hailing from the mountains of Los Andes, Venezuela, NYC heavy psych-grunge outfit Joudy (“Howdy”) synthesize dissonant melodies, dark tones, and hypnotic rhythms into a sound somehow both austere and lush, evocative of Deftones, QOTSA, and Nirvana. Displaced by political unrest in their home country, cousins Diego Ramirez (Vocals/Guitar), Gabriel Gavidia (Bass) and Hulrich Navas (Drums) were reunited in the U.S. in 2019 and have since built a well-earned reputation for their explosive live performances, at contrast with the introspective and esoterically dense lyricism that has become their signature. Their first full length release since reforming in the U.S., Joudy’s forthcoming third LP, Destroy All Monsters, “marries their history with the impossible challenges they’ve overcome both personally and professionally” (Wonderland Magazine). Destroy All Monsters is an invitation into oblivion and a hand reaching through the dark to pull you back out— a darkly atmospheric meditation on the hero’s journey and the resilience of the human spirit. Destroy All Monsters drops June 2023 via Trash Casual.
