Fear This

April 20, 2023 / Self-Released

The third full-length album from NO MEN is peak rock and roll and rage, a bright shining beacon of opposition and defiance in another year of uncertainty and chaos. A 13-song LP that is a proud Chicago product through-and-through, recorded in a breakneck three days with engineer Steve Albini at the legendary Electrical Audio studio, with mixing and production completed at JAMDEK by the band’s longtime sonic co-conspirator Doug Malone and mastering by Carl Saff.

NO MEN | Audiotree Live Session

Audiotree Live

March 15, 2023

No Men bring an ethos of punk rock mischief to their Audiotree Live performance. DB’s bass lines shake, Eric’s drum rolls flash, and Pursley’s vocals thunder like the gods of Mt. Olympus preparing to teach us mere mortals a thing or two about the power of subverting the status quo. No Men take no prisoners. It’s time to yield to their will.

Hell Was Full, So We Came Back

2019 – Let’s Pretend Records / State Champion Records

The sophomore full-length effort from Chicago noisemakers NO MEN, an album full of unrelenting sound and fury that embraces all things heavy. This is an album that doesn’t stay in one place for long and drags you with it. Fuzzed-out bass and crushing drums provide the backdrop for Siouxsiesque vocals alternating between sultry and seething, with lyrics touching on all the usual themes of frustration, depression, heartbreak, and righteous indignation. Hell doesn’t sound so bad after all.


2017 – Let’s Pretend Records

The CUT recordings took place at the Minbal (now JAMDEK) studio on Sacramento Blvd. with engineer Doug Malone. The sounds from this session ended up as sharp and fearsome as the Remington chainsaw shown on the cover, and the resulting double single was released as a limited edition of 300 blood-red 7″ records for Halloween 2017 by Let’s Pretend Records. “Both songs hit that happy balance between aggression, tongue-in-cheek, and empowerment … there’s a tension that escalates just to the point of complete chaos, but still retains a succinct coordination and direction.” – Sophie Holtzmann, CHIRP Radio

No Men "Dear God, Bring the Doom"

Dear God, Bring the Doom

2016 – Let’s Pretend Records

The first proper No Men full-length, Dear God, Bring The Doom was conceived with engineer Brian Fox at Two States Audio in northwest Chicago, recorded live with minimal overdubs in two days to best capture the urgency and intensity of live shows. Cassette available through international label Gezellig Records.

Don’t Think Its Needed

2015 Self Released / Young Cubs

A collection of songs from the first two No Men EPs, released while the band was a 4-piece in Austin, TX. “Houston” and “Maybe Tonight” were self-recorded as part of the Don’t Think demo that marked the beginning of No Men, released in February 2015 to coincide with the first show (at Trailer Space, RIP when Austin was cool). All other tracks were recorded by Gary James at Bell Tree Studio over the course of July-August 2015 and appeared on the Needed cassette released by Young Cubs. Limited copies of this original tape run are still available through YC/Midheaven.
