Big Laugh Released Video For “Mask”

Big Laugh

Hailing from Milwaukee, WI, Big Laugh are unleashing an energetic blast of creative hardcore. Today the band announces their debut full-length, Consume Me, set for release February 10th on Revelation Records. Lead single “Mask” kicks things off in a minute and a half of fast-punk guitars and snarling vocals, with a groove-heavy breakdown. The video for the song compiles together live footage, giving an inkling as to what fans can expect when the band heads out on tour with Gel in early 2023.

Recorded with producer Matt Russell at Altered States studio in Chicago, Consume Me bends genres and refuses to stick to tired formulas, taking nods from other Midwest greats like Husker Du and Die Kreuzen. Self-described “punks who listen to Judge,” Big Laugh work in a wide array of influences – from the blazing speed and harsh noises of Japanese rippers like Gauze and Bastard to the mosh-ready impact of NYHC bands like Burn and Alone In A Crowd, and even some melodic sensibilities akin to the aforementioned Husker Du. The album’s lyrics hit close to home for the band, holding personal notions while still feeling outwardly relatable. It follows the band’s 2020 EP, Manic Revision (11PM Records), which Revelation has also announced a vinyl reissue for.
