Back in the dark and cold days of early January we did a cover story on the local art/noise/hardcore band Homo Monstrous as part of a larger feature we did on Performatorium 2015.

At the time of the interview Jaye Kovach and Leo Keiser were busy recording a full-length album to complement an earlier EP release. On Saturday May 9 the duo will be playing a release show for that album at the Mercury Café. Haut Bois and Wormwood are also on the bill, and things should get going around 9 p.m. Tickets are $10.

To give you a bit of a sense of what Homo Monstrous sounds like here’s video of a performance the band did at the MacKenzie Art Gallery in 2012
