Hamers brings experimental noiserock by means of gnarly guitar and bass riffs, heavy-hitting drums and face-ripping vocals.
Originating from Maasmechelen, the band emerged in May 2018 when they entered GAM Studio to record their debut EP “GROBTOK” with Micha Volders (The Rott Childs, Kabulf Golf Club) and Kasper De Sutter (El Yunque). The name honors their personal cook and mascot Pieter Hamers, who came along and provided the needed craze in the studio.
The EP forms the base sound of the band. Influences vary from Scratch Acid, Swans and Slint.
GROBTOK was released on March 30th 2019.
