Hailing from the home of Thurston Moore and Dinosaur Jr., and drawing from the fertile music community that is Western Massachusetts, Potty Mouth are all-parts smart-pop craftswomen, specializing in taut, infectious, C-86 influenced indie pop meets '77 punk perfection. The band released their debut 12" vinyl EP, entitled "Sun Damage" in July 2012, which garnered the attention of Pitchfork, who called the six-song EP an "an impressive, no-filler debut," as well as The Boston Globe, who named Potty Mouth one of the "top five indie-rock bands to watch in 2013," with Brooklyn Vegan adding that they were "one of the most promising new bands in their local scene." Departing from the more angular shades of post-punk heard in their EP, "Hell Bent" is marked by its significantly heavier production and melancholic hooks. Nonetheless, the album stays true to the confident, youthful punk aesthetic the band has cultivated for themselves.

"It’s a hodgepodge of sounds with a complicated backstory, but the end result is just staggering with infectious tunes that will keep you humming for days on end. Not every song features the surf and Latino merger, but when it does, there are melodies and hooks that would make even Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago envious. It’s a highlight of Apocalypsos, a record whose namesake is almost as ingrained in the scene as Viteri himself." - New Noise Magazine
