Brooklyn’s performance-based punk-rock explosion Unstoppable Death Machines has announced Maker Punks, a biographical mini documentary. Collaborating with Karmaloop, the documentary explores the band’s “loud as fuck” sound and “anti DIY” aesthetic. As brothers Mike and Billy Tucci explain, “You can Do-It-Yourself or you can Do-Yourself-In. DIY is a little isolating. Everything we do is a collaboration with friends. It may seem like a lot of work to have to print every shirt one by one and every sticker one by one…but we have a connection to every shirt we make and every sticker we put out there.”
Catch the band live on their upcoming live dates in Texas and beyond kicking off this week on May 29, 2014 at Austin TX’s Holy Mountain.
Unstoppable Death Machines is a performance-based punk-rock explosion from Brooklyn via Queens. Formed by brothers Mike and Billy Tucci in 2009, the duo has criss-crossed the USA performing in DIY spaces, venues, rooftops, warehouse parties, art galleries and museums- including a hometown performance at the Queens Museum of Art Biennial and Miami Beach Art Basel. The duo has made a name for themselves with their raucous live performances where they stack walls of speakers and use homemade face microphones to sculpt a sound described by fans as “loud-as-fuck.” At one point experimenting with relational performances where they would coerce the audience to participate in a cathartic drum circle at the end of their sets.
