VACANT: We Wear Our Traumas Well: LP
Jan 24, 2024
Five-piece Minneapolis outfit that rages full on with this album. I don’t know if “Mushrooms at Midnight” is still a good idea but don’t let me stop you from having fun. “Social Media Psychosis” pokes fun at the “keyboard warriors” out there (you know who you are). The songs are delivered with a ferocious snarl and a two-guitar assault that aims to punch you in the gut. The rhythm section never lets up either and I’m digging the noir influence on the cover art too. Hang up the poster and crank this one up loud. –Sean Koepenick ( - Razorcake

"VACANT We Wear Our Traumas Well LP"

We Wear Our Traumas Well LP
Tough-as-nails hardcore punk courtesy of some stalwarts of the storied Minneapolis scene. VACANT cranks out fourteen tracks of four-chord nastiness that has a slightly metallic, somewhat melodic bent that conjures up the spirit of later-era POISON IDEA. Befitting of their pedigree, VACANT embodies a 2023 take on the kind of ’90s political punk peddled by Profane Existence. Anyone familiar with ASSRASH will instantly recognize Pignose’s distinct vocals. Musically, they build off the foundation of the members other previous efforts such as SCORNED and HELLSPAWN. VACANT isn’t as raw or unhinged as the aforementioned bands, but this makes for a more coherent if less energetic delivery. Given how long these dudes have been at it, I’d say they wear their traumas well indeed. - Maximum Rock and Roll

Assrash. Cleveland Bound Death Sentence. Scorned. Vacant is a blast of Mpls Punk past and it's smashing it's old ass into the future. You know how when your parents get a few in them and start telling war stories of the dumb shit that they did and you realize how fucking cool your parents were? That's vacant. We're your teacher, your banker, your candlestick maker that has a deep dark secret that is bubbling under the surface. We're hardcore vets who know what the fuck is happening and are going to raise some hell about it.

Fuck around and find out.
