Fucked and Bound becomes Filth Is Eternal

Fucked and Bound becomes Filth Is Eternal

Seattle band Fucked and Bound has formally announced a name change to Filth Is Eternal -- and shared a new song "Zed" (below) along with the news.

The band, featuring Lisa Mungo, Brian McClelland, Rah Davis, and Mathew Chandler, plays harsh punk with gritty, DIY, realism tones. Rather than paraphrase the band's intent in chaning names, vocalist Lisa Mungo explains:

I've always believed that a transformative moment would hit during the lifespan of this outfit, but relegated these notions to the future tense. However, our collective experience over the past twelve plus months made it clear that the moment was presenting itself now.” If nothing else, surely this strange and painful time apart has proven just how illusory our ideas of what the future will be like are, and that it is important to take adaptive action in the present.

"Zed" is released currenlty as a standalone single, though Filth Is Eternal will release a new album on August 28, 2021 on Quiet Panic (USA)/Church Road (UK/EU).
