With a name like Summer Canibals, you may think they are a band that would look quite beastly, like the guys from Impetigo or Cannibal Corpse. As you can see, that is not the case. This Portland rock combo will be releasing their debut album on August 6th, No Makeup (New Moss), and their sound is a mix blend of rock with a huge chunk of garage, punk, and a bit of that distortion and amplified buzz that your favorite bands are known for including in their music. You can expect for them to enhance that in a live setting. The band are:
Jessica Boudreaux (vocals/guitars)
Marc Swart (guitars)
Valerie Brodgen (drums)
Lynnae Gryffin (bass)

Summer Cannibals have a number of shows coming up that are close to home, but will be doing a west coast tour when the album is released. Check them out if you are in or heading to the Pacific Northwest:
