WHAT THE HELL?

THE HOMEWRECKERS were a queer-core / pop-punk outfit from the salty depths of Brooklyn, NY. They were founded in 2008 when Cristy Road and J got together to write emotionally-distraught pop-punk songs about crush problems and manic depression. Given the sexist and racist agenda that sadly informs the history of punk, navigating their way out of the dark clouds of Cristy Road's self-esteem took a minute... Eventually, they found their power after completing a couple of songs and forged through those invisible walls of self-hate with their first 7" in 2009 with Crystal on drums and Frank on Guitar. With time, The Homewreckers grew, Cristy found her diaphragm, and the band transformed between several lineup changes and dark episodes. The Homewreckers insist on pushing an agenda where patriarchy is blown to shit. They had many feelings and always found an excuse to harmonize. They sang about imperialism getting in the way of cultural identity and Gentrification getting in the way of the perfect date.
