Deranged Records/Dirtnap/Ugly Pop
Career Suicide is a purist hardcore punk band from Toronto, Canada. Formed in 2001, the band was founded by vocalist Martin Farkas and guitarist Jonah Falco (who splits his time as drummer of Fucked Up). The band has multiple records under their belt and is no stranger to performing in all corners of the World.
Their latest LP Machine Response veers in and out of pure speed, bursts of melody, and chunky tempo shifts, indenting the long standing influence of early 80s USHC, late 70s punk, and a peppering of 60s garage, with their own clearly developed style. On 2nd guitar Dallas Good (Sadies, Andre Williams, John Doe, Half Japanese, Elevator and a million more) presents an towering presence; a screaming contribution by great friend and long time supporter of the band, Souichi Hisatake, (Forward, GISM, Insane Youth, Gudon etc) to crack your brain up; artwork in collaboration with Ryan Tong of S.H.I.T. and Toronto’s life-giving Faith/Void; and a thundering recording, once again helmed by the decorated and limitless in his pursuit of smooth hearing loss, Jon Drew, provide the most damaging clarity Career Suicide have been able to capture to date.
