Many Arms bio:
Formed in 2007, Philadelphia and New York-based Many Arms are a power trio in the truest sense of the term. The band’s music is a loud, aggressive blend of punk and free jazz, tied together with compositions that twist and turn through angular unison melodies and complex rhythmic vamps.
Many Arms’ punk rock touring ethos has taken their music across the US and Canada numerous times, where they’ve shared bills with many bands, including Marnie Stern, Nat Baldwin, Tera Melos, Dysrhythmia, Extra Life, Schnaak, Bardo Pond, Normal Love, Inzinzac, Eric Carbonara, Yowie, Les Rhinoceros, Mario Diaz De Leon, and Pitom.
To date, Many Arms have released three full-length albums and one EP. In 2012, the not-for-proft cooperative record label Tzadik Records (owned and operated by composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist John Zorn) released the band’s third full-length, simply titled Many Arms.
