Aggress against, worship again, new as new is, suffocate me. There is always someone to praise, the demagoguery of modern media makes it hard to see the forest for the trees. Put your phone in the other room, sit back, and soak in the distorted view of MVLL CRIMES. Steal away this moment for your own.
Formed in 2019 out of a need to create something heavy and thought provoking, Patrick Briggs asked Jillian Clair to join him in his newest musical project. Writing their first EP in an afternoon, and recording it in the same amount of time, Patrick waited until Jill finished her masters degree before recording her vocals. Finishing the formation of the band with the best musicians they know; Bassist, Laurie McColeman and Drummer, Evan Martin, MVLL CRIMES would self-release their 2020 debut tape “ROVDSIDE VTTRVCTIONS” just as the Covid-19 pandemic swept the world and closed every venue. Not resting on their laurels, MVLL CRIMES would take this time to write and record their 2021 follow up EP “BOOTLICKER’S DELIGHT” and begin touring their native Canada as soon as restrictions began lifting. Catching the attention of upand-coming Toronto record label Cursed Blessings Records, MVLL CRIMES would record and release their latest 2022 effort “YOU EMBVRRVSS ME” on vinyl and digital distribution through the label. MVLL CRIMES have since began working with South Paw Booking who covers all their Canadian touring dates, and are currently working with American managers to coordinate U.S. touring. You can find MVLL CRIMES on the road touring consistently throughout Canada and beyond this year.
