Lariats have been coined as a Tucson punk rock super-group as their members have been in local giants Youinseries (Equal Vision), Versus The Mirror (Equal Vision), and The American Black Lung(Uprising). Although members have toured the world many times in other groups, they decided to form a new band that played exactly the kind of punk rock they grew up on. Their upcoming "Our Native Tongue Is Bad News" EP is a masterful melding of punk rock and emo, dishing out songs that spiritually make their way to Tucson via Gainesville via RIchmond via Chicago. This is the band that is playing your basement, your garage, your empty swimming pool, or your rooftop. In 2012, Lariats released their debut "If Mediocrity Was A Body Of Water, We Would Have All Drowned By Now" EP and it was recieved with sweat, spilt beer, and broken eardrums throughout the southwest. In March of 2013, Lariats released " Our Native Tongue is Bad News" EP on Negative Progression Records. This band is formed by fire and friendship. Lariats are unstoppable.
