THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS will be touring in support of their critically adored Celebrity Therapist full-length, released last month on MNRK Heavy and Modern Static Records.
Featuring charismatic frontman Carson Pace, guitarists Maddie Caffrey and Dan Hodsdon, bassist Jackie Buckalew, drummer Sam Williamson, and violinist Amber Christman, THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS revive noise rock like they’re summoning the dead delivering a vibrant and singular concoction of mathcore, sasscore, and post-hardcore — a sound that’s unapologetically dense and impenetrable yet confusingly inviting as each song deliriously swerves across stylistic lines.
Celebrity Therapist earned the #6 position on Billboard’s Top New Artists chart upon its first week release. Revolver hails the band’s “torrential storm of mathcore complexity, soft-jazz Muzak, bossa nova, alternative radio rock, and effects warped violin warping ” Kerrang! calls the record “wonderful” and “chaotic,” while Stereogum observes, “Atlanta’s THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS make a frantic, freaked-out form of math-damaged metalcore. They recall the late-’90s insanity of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Botch, if either of those bands had ever messed around with pop melodies or employed a violin player.” Adds Distorted Sound, “[Celebrity Therapist] is quite possibly the most essential release in the worlds of post-hardcore, metalcore and whatever else you want to call it that we’ve had in the 2020s so far, if not for longer.”
Celebrity Therapist is out now on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. Order yours today at THIS LOCATION.

“For every skronky guitar spasm and rhythmic tongue-twist, there’s a majestically catchy chorus or a destructively heavy breakdown that actually rewards the ear with something singable or moshable. It’s not just messy and weird for the hell of it, there’s an actual purpose and intentionality to its structure, and so many sonic tidbits to sink your teeth into.” – Revolver
“THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS make a frantic, freaked-out form of math-damaged metalcore. They recall the late-’90s insanity of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Botch, if either of those bands had ever messed around with pop melodies or employed a violin player.” – Stereogum
“Wonderful, chaotic…” – Kerrang!
“It is innovative, unflinching, brazen, fun as hell, and completely unfazed to stand in a league all its own.” – New Noise Magazine
“A peak of efficacy is reached on ‘Title Track:’ a cinematic conflagration of wild, grinding intensity, treacly electronics, stuttering, Mr. Bungle-style clown metal and shimmering waves of post-rock grandeur. Somehow, it all hangs together. THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS are clever, unpredictable bastards, and this is a deeply smart and subversive piece of work.” – Blabbermouth
“…quite possibly the most essential release in the worlds of post-hardcore, metalcore and whatever else you want to call it that we’ve had in the 2020s so far, if not for longer.” – Distorted Sound
“…a record that manages to be both archetypal and redefining of mathcore as a genre. A cacophonous amalgam of blistering brutality, mind-numbing technicality and neck-snapping twists out of far-left field, Celebrity Therapist sees THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS emerge as perhaps one of the genre’s first newcomers with a level shot at rising to the level of notoriety, influence and excellence as acts like Botch or The Dillinger Escape Plan.” – New Transcendence
“… On paper, it should never work…but in execution, it’s unfathomably riveting. Let’s get weird. Real weird.” – Sputnik Music
“…organic, fresh, and frankly, not quite like anything else currently out there. It stands as an essential listen to anyone interested in extreme music reaching outside the box.” – Lambgoat
“THE CALLOUS DAOBOYS have truly tapped into something special on Celebrity Therapist and, right now at least, no one else can touch them. Bedlam has never sounded so good.” – Punktastic
