Formed in Melbourne in 2021, The Misanthropes is a post-punk band comprised of former members of Love of Diagrams, Sea Scouts, and Sewers.

The band features Monika Fikerle on drums, Tim Evans on guitar and vocals, and formerly Kristian Brenchley on bass (now featuring Josh Watson). Their sound draws from post-punk, noise rock, and lo-fi shoegaze but these dour outings have hooks.

From lock-ins in Smog’s Bathysphere to blanket raging of late 80’s Wipers, The Misanthropes lean on a unique unrelenting density. Rolling thunder drums, driving bass lines and waves of guitars all captured by Max Ducker at Cellar Sessions in Melbourne.

Solar/Sonar is proud to present The Misanthropes debut self titled album, out June 15th digitally everywhere and on super limited edition cassette.

Release: June 15th, 2023, Solar/Sonar
