Volunteer hark back to the days when music could be heavy without being “metal”; when power came from the intensity with which a band’s members played, not from volume, effects, or (God forbid) theatrics. Volunteer‘s 4-song 10” release “Goner” (a collaborative release between their own label Triple Eye Industries and Chicago’s Forge Again Records) perfectly encapsulates their ethos – brutal riffs hammered out with a directness that defies classification or easy comparisons.

Comprising former members of Traitors, Gasoline Fight, Forstella Ford, and Stock Options, Volunteer commenced operations in Spring of 2013, self-recording their first, self-titled 6-song EP in late June for an October release on Chicago’s Underground Communique Records. Their live debut occurred in early July, with the band taking care to avoid the common pitfall of playing multiple times a month, thereby ensuring that each subsequent show be an event, rather than something easily disregarded or missed.

The bottom line is that if you enjoy unpretentious, mind-bendingly intense music, Volunteer is the band for you, both live and on record. Make no mistake, you will be hearing more about them; start listening now and avoid the rush.
