Mall'd To Death
Hailing from the Land of 10,000 Malls, Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Mall’d to Death came to life in summer of 2009. Their fiery brand of melodic punk throws conventional pop songwriting techniques out the window while delivering all the catchy hooks they can pack into their short, punchy songs. Wasting no time on excessive noodling or melodramatics, Mall’d to Death centers their songs around clever lyrics and unorthodox structures, making the most of their three-person approach. After being featured on the 2009 Protect 2 benefit compilation, the band delivers ten shots of rough pop-punk on their 2010 debut Can’t Make a Living, recorded DIY by the band themselves with cover artwork by Corey Ayd of Minneapolis pop-punk act Banner Pilot.
