Year of the Locust is a motley collection of personalities from the American Northeast. Hailing from NYC, Washington Dc, and West “By God” Virginia, the band’s sound has come into it’s own under the watchful eye of producer/guitarist Brain Bonds.
“I remember going to see them at The Masquerade in Atlanta. In the moments before YOTL hit the stage I (and everyone else) heard some sort of guttural gang chant erupt from the backstage area. It really grabbed everyone’s attention. The tenacity they brought to their show and the way they commanded the stage was reminiscent of the arena bands I enjoyed as a kid. That type of power is a unique thing, and I knew I wanted to know more about them.” -Brian Bonds
