“The Atlanta mathcore renegades dropped one of the best albums of 2022, Celebrity Therapist, and now they’re back with another helping.”Revolver

“There’s no one else out there who sounds like The Callous Daoboys. They’re not only unique in metal but just a genuinely innovative band, and the thrashy ‘Waco Jesus’ is a great example.” The Alternative

“The first song released is “Waco Jesus,” and the band somehow manage to sound even more genre-defying and chaotic than ever on this one.” BrooklynVegan

“The six-piece from Atlanta have a style that’s hard to pin down, oscillating from madcap insanity to borderline sexy melodies to irreverently screaming ‘fuck you’ to conventions, this band is one you should abso-fucking-lutely be following.”Metal Sucks

“Corralling the band’s broad range that varies from metal, jazz and pop all into one, the single plays to the strengths of the collective, making the unconventional into something memorable for all the right reasons.” Knotfest

On October 20th, The Callous Daoboys will release God Smiles Upon The Callous Daoboys through MNRK Heavy and Modern Static Records. Having already shared the crushing “Waco Jesus,” today the six-piece band drop the mind-boggling “Pushing The Pink Envelope.” The single will make you want to mosh and dance at the same time, as odd time signatures meet rave-worthy synths. Carson Pace’s high-pitched clean vocals bounce off guttural screams, and it’s all just the next step in The Callous Daoboys’ genre-less takeover. The video for the single sequels “Waco Jesus” as the band continue on their Phantom Phinders journey to locate the “suburban spectre.” You can watch the video for “Pushing The Pink Envelope” HERE and stream the track HERE.

Following 2022’s highly praised and chaotic album Celebrity Therapist, God Smiles Upon The Callous Daoboys takes the experimental noise the band have become known for and unleashes it into their most confident body of work yet. Being the first self-titled release in their discography, this three-song collection showcases what this group is capable of – breaking ground in innovative and unconventional songwriting, while seamlessly transcending genre limitations. From careening through chaotic breakdowns to belting calculated TRL-inspired hooks, the band leaves it all on the table, flirting with Nu-Jazz, Nu-Metal, and twisting through Salsa. There’s a brutal honesty to the tracks, with underlying themes of being true to yourself and your art.

The band will join Protest The Hero and Moon Tooth on a North American tour this fall and will head to Europe with TesseracT and Unprocessed in January 2024. Full dates below.
