Locked up this body’s a prison Infected cells I’m not a person Fake glimmer and make believe on life number two Seven left when will I get a better view? Born haunted, unholy and glistening Sage purifies I whisper let’s burn down everything Strike first with one little spark Spread like fire explosive I’ll leave my mark I’m on empty out to lunch I’ll take it lying down It’s too late didn’t land on my feet and I’m losing count It’s all my fault don’t bury the lead Countdown loose wires a time bomb ticking inside of me As luck would have it, I’m all glitter and spit Nine times to die, I’m all glitter and spit Bomb threat, covered in glitter and spit Dust to dust, she’s made of glitter and spit Cut and run, crawl out of my skin holiday escape One way ticket on the astral plane to an altered state No where to run inside job hostage situation Sparkle explode my own creation

Death of kingdom last breath a cleaver in the palace Royal stories in the air we breathe Suffocate on history colonial ties cloud our lungs Repulsive power we’re winded and gasping Folklore mouthfuls of greed and red We are all short of breath Stab wounds on the Senate floor Crumble the province we can’t take it Full moon rises stars crash Dictators set to expire calendars from history Cloned vapors seeping earth’s time machine Stories skip while Caesar flies in dreams High priest supreme deity Ritual sacrifice beware Son of man a deadline to settle your debts We all breathe tyranny Sick with plague sick with power A ring around Rosie Burnt to ashes we all fall down They are set to expire

about

“Will you die with your eyes open?”

Washington D.C.’s NØ MAN is a necessary and much-needed voice in modern hardcore. Formed in 2017, the four-piece punk band has been alchemizing the personal and the political from the jump. Composed of members from Majority Rule, the band’s current aims go hand-in-hand with their past, sonically and thematically.

Their upcoming album Glitter and Spit is the band’s third full-length LP, solidifying their furious hardcore into a weapon of a record. Album opener “Eat My Twin” twists and refracts a mid-tempo riff into a sonic hammer, cracking open the record’s heaviness to come. Singer Maha Shami has fully come into her own as a frontperson, snarling out the most vicious vocals of her career on “Poison Darts.”

As the daughter of refugees, returning home to Palestine included witnessing first-hand the casual atrocities inflicted on her family. Though written before the current conflict’s boiling point, Glitter and Spit synthesizes the 70+ years of systemic violence carried out against Palestine and her own lived experiences. From school teachers and classmates telling her Palestine doesn’t exist, to being humiliated by soldiers at checkpoints when she visited her family, these many moments fuel the album’s lifeblood, coalescing on “Can’t Kill Us All.”

“They want to silence us,” Shami said at a recent benefit show in D.C. “We will be louder. We aren’t fucking going anywhere. Because Palestine will never die.” Glitter and Spit is a much-needed fire of an album, fueled by the anxieties and anger of the now, erupting in a cathartic inferno.

The band’s members Matt Michel (guitar/vocals), Pat Broderick (drums) and Kevin Lamiell (Bass) helped lay the foundation for hardcore and screamo in Majority Rule from 1996 to 2004. Alongside the band, vocalist Maha Shami has been a longtime friend, giving a “cameo” guest vocal performance on Majority Rule’s “Packaged Poison” in 2004. When Majority Rule reunited in 2017 to perform multiple benefit shows, it ignited a desire to keep creating, and no one was better equipped to step in as front person than Shami.

Their energy and spirit have brought them together on tour with bands like Portrayal of Guilt, Darkest Hour, FAIM, Entry and more. In 2023 they collaborated with former tourmates and fellow iconoclasts The HIRS Collective on the song “Sweet Like Candy.” They’ve also contributed to Secret Voice’s (the label of Touche Amore frontman Jeremy Bolm) compilation Balladeers, Redefined.
