NOI!SE formed in Seattle in the summer of 2009 and the chemistry was immediate as all band members had extremely varied influences, but a common vision to make quality, melodic Oi!/streetpunk that reflected the band’s perspective of the world around them. With Matt’s deployments overseas creating an inconsistent schedule, the clock was ticking for the band to get as much done as they possibly could, so between December of 2009 and December of 2010, NOI!SE recorded the Walk Beside Us 7” (Longshot Music), This Is Who We Are 10” (Longshot Music), and THE GESTALTS split 7” (Oi! The Boat Records) and shared the stage with bands like SICK OF IT ALL, PRESSURE POINT, and THE BUSINESS to name just a few.
“…quality, stomping oi! with lyrics that thankfully avoid jingoism. Most songs call out pathetic people who refuse to take responsibility for themselves. Here’s an example with some lyrics from the song “Blame”: ‘Nothing ever is your fault/Pointing fingers until you claim your bullshit victory by default/And then when all of your days are through/You’ll sit by yourself alone/Pretending there was nothing you could do.’ This theme is continued with another song on the album. It’s clearly something that the band was dealing with in their community. Backing the songs that confront this behavior are songs about standing up and putting up a fight with your friends for the life you want. Between you and me, this is a keeper.” — Razorcake
