Witness the Blistering Synth Punk Experience That is MSPAINT Live!

Libby Sanders

There’s a reason why Mississippi’s MSPAINT doesn’t make hardcore punk but hardcore punks love MSPAINT. Their music is weird, heavy, danceable, grungy, fuzzy, and confrontational, and that appeals to a group of people who want to be misfits together and maybe push each other around for fun. If you don’t have their 2023 record Post​-​American via Convulse Records yet, you’d better get it here. Whatever’s coming next for this band, we’re excited to hear it! Today we want to pay homage to MSPAINT by sharing some live footage captured last year in Toronto by ConcertJunkiex — check it out below!

We’ve been playing music for years in a place that’s pretty off the beaten path. For the majority of the time spent working on these songs we never really imagined that there would ever be a physical record to sell. Being able to release Post-American on this scale was only made a reality by a ton of other people investing their time and belief that we had made something other people needed to hear. Our music is about us and what we see and feel, and we craft the music to reflect that.  Most of the response has been so positive from other much heavier bands, we feel more inspired to just be ourselves. I think heavy music can be portrayed as a pissing contest sometimes. Maybe in spirit, it is, but most of the people we’ve interacted with aren’t exactly chasing trends. They’re just making the music that feels right to them and experiencing success because that’s how everyone else feels too.
