There are bands out there today in 2019 that not only survived the Nu-Metal revolution but are still active and thriving. One such band is (Hed) P.E. who has constantly been contributing to the post-Nu Metal world with a consistent string of under the radar bangers.

JBVDLP: B-sides and otherwise

Make no mistake: Erik Scott is not Bob Mould but that’s just fine.

The original track, “Based On The Evidence”, is just as vicious as anything they’ve done thus far but if this gem didn’t make the cut you can only imagine how amazing Exhibit C will sound.
Preview and purchase Based On The Evidence… for a measly $1 on their bandcamp page now and don’t forget to like us over on Facebook!
