Yonkers’ very own, For Lack of a Term is coming at you with the release of their debut album, Welcome To Your New Normal! Since the announcement of Welcome To Your New Normal back in November 2021, they have released 3 singles; “Jawbreakers,” “I’m Sorry, Did My Back Hurt Your Knife?,” and “Always Something,” with “Jawbreakers,” being picked up for rotation on Idobi Radio, Spinning Thoughts and premiered on Punk News. The fun food fight concept music video for “Always Something” premiered on Rock N Load in October. To celebrate this momentous occasion, they are also releasing a music video for “Dirty Laundry.” Singer Ryan Dempsey shot and directed the video. He has the following to say about it; “Dirty Laundry is about making the most of a second chance at a life with someone, even with the odds stacked against us.”
Hailing from the budding music scene of Yonkers, NY, For Lack of a Term is an alternative punk rock four-piece known around town and beyond for their unique live sound and energetic performances. Frontman Ryan Dempsey & drummer Chris Beairsto, who have worked together on past musical projects, started For Lack of a Term in 2014. Throughout the year, there have been multiple line-up changes but Ryan and Chris kept enhancing their sound. In 2017, Arthur Wernham was recruited to join on bass. Arthur’s post-hardcore background gave the band a heavier punk sound. By 2019, Conor Cullen joined the group on guitar and backing vocals, completing the sound they have today.
They recently announced that they will be hitting the road in support of their debut album. Check out the flyer below to see if they’ll be hitting a venue near you!
