There is no illusion that Open City doesn't have easily searchable names. It’s, as bassist Andy Nelson says, “impossible to avoid,” that Google will reveal myriad projects and connections that span the past 30 years of punk and range from New Jersey to California.
Simply, Open City are four experienced rockers who have worked and lived through many eras of punk and hardcore. Their influences reflect that and their combined understanding of themselves as artists. There’s no pretense with all their interests in the world of music and with what Open City achieved with their upcoming LP, Hands In The Honey Jar.
To produce the record, Open City relied on Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Show Me The Body, Glitterer) Though drums were recorded in a studio, bass, guitar, and vocals were recorded in a wood shop.
