Are You Leaving Everyone?, the debut collaboration between Sros Lords and London based Merdumgiriz records is raw punk rock. The buzzing thick synth veils over instinctual drums and melodic guitars upon which clean vocals spew out emotion. Mixing elements of hard rock, old school punk rock, synthpunk and electronic music filtered through a world of psychedelia; the album is a highly original slab of melodic heaviness and insanity. With lyrics as psychotic as the members, this filthy gut scorching punk act is a very original and fine addition to the mental asylum of the Merdümgiriz cult.
The SROS Lords are a punk band based out of Detroit, Michigan. Clad in sticky denim and a blanket of radioactive pot smoke, the SROS Lords use damaged electronic equipment to create music that is both archaic and futurist. The subjects of the songs can range from lonely love songs to alchemical Santa mutation. They are currently a three-piece band, consisting of Jamie Cherry (drums), Johnny LZR (synth), and Morgan Blank (guitar/vox).
As with all his work on Merdumgiriz Records, Emir Toğrul's grand vision, each copy of the “Are You Leaving Everyone?” CD and Tape will be made by hand in the artisanal style. Emir paints the discs, cuts and inserts the prints for the jewel case and jacket, making all non-machined parts from scratch.
