Get Acquainted with Sorority Noise and Their New Single "Dirty Ickes"

Cameron Boucher is making sure that if you're a fan of punk and/or emo, you're going to be talking about him all the time before 2014 ends. 

As the frontman for very buzzy punk act Old Gray, Boucher—a Connecticut native who still has a year left in college—found himself wanting another outlet, so he started up Sorority Noise with some friends, and Forgettable is the quartet's debut LP. Watch the video for the brand-new song "Dirty Ickes" above.

"Dirty Ickes" actually provides a perfect introduction to Sorority Noise: It's a fuzzy, familiar blend of indie, emo and punk with tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Boucher shouts, "I'm not going anywhere / Except I am going to die" as the band explode into a wall of sound around him. It's desperate but it's charming, and the end result is that you want to experience it in person. For help with that, check out the band's upcoming tour dates below on an incredible bill with Modern BaseballTiny Moving Parts and The Hotelier.  

As if Boucher wasn't busy enough with two bands, the "Dirty Ickes" video is his directorial debut. He told Fuse that he simply "found a VHS camera in my parents' basement, took out all my old Halloween costumes and told my brother to get in the car."  

Sorority Noise are on Twitter and Forgettable, which drops May 15, can be preordered on vinyl.
