“Drinking Boys and Girls Choir are a skate-punk trio from Daegu City, Korea. Formed in 2013 when two drummers MJ and Meena shared a rehearsal space, and decided to form a band. Meena switched to Bass and guitarist Bondu (who had just finished his military service) answered their ad. They bonded over a shared love of drinking, skating and punk.
Inspired by Sum41, NOFX and Daegu’s 90s-00s hardcore punk/indie-rock scene before it moved to Seoul, the band are very passionate about not moving to the capital and nurturing a sustainable local scene.
The recording of Keep Drinking!! started in 2017, but MJ suffered a motobike crash, so the band took a hiatus while awaiting her recovery. When she was fit again, they DIY produced this 18 track debut album, which follows their 2015 EP ‘We are’.
The band signed to Damnably Records and Electric Muse in the summer of 2018 to release debut album “Keep Drinking!!” on digital/CD & vinyl.”
