At Proving Grounds Aftermath

“[…] the visceral release of performing. Extreme noise and dissonance can be an incredibly cleansing thing.” Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth)

Kelsey is an unrelenting wrecking crew from Nijmegen, NL, that throws a wide array of elements in the mix to serve up a blend of chaotic Hardcore with hints of Post-Metal and a Punk attitude that is equally crushing as thrilling. A group of friends with a shared love for anything loud and unruly, consisting of (ex)members of other Dutch bands, such as: AntillectualBanditoBismutJacky Heretic and Through The Struggle. Early 2020 saw the digital release of debut EP “Dead Aesthetic”: a self recorded live session which captured an ambience of chaotic and uncompromising intensity, and landed the band a spot on the Popronde Eindfeest event at the iconic Melkweg venue in Amstedam that same year.

Tear the f*cking walls down.
