Minneapolis, Minnesota has long been home to a punk/hardcore scene that marches to a beat all it’s own. Among the newest wave of bands keeping this spirit alive is five-piece melodic hardcore outfit HOUSEHOLD. Despite the members just recently finishing high school, they have consistently created music that has been impossible to ignore. While comparisons to Killing The Dream, Shai Hulud, and Sinking Ships are often made, it’s evident HOUSEHOLD are willing to defy convention and craft truly unique songs showcasing a sound all their own.

Now teamed with Blood & Ink Records (who also worked with Minnesota hardcore luminaries Venia), HOUSEHOLD have prepared their first proper release, an EP entitled “With or Without”. The effort demonstrates the band’s creativity and masterful songwriting, while staying true to the lexicon of melodic hardcore they find so inspiring. This young band is making a statement: they’re worth your attention and have just scratched the surface of what they can do.

Household premiere new music video for “Purpose”


Household have premiered a new music video for their song “Purpose,” off their debut EP, With or Without, released on September 30 via Blood & Ink Records. The video was filmed during the final show at the house/venue where the band started. Frontman Josh Gilbert had this to say about the video:

“This house was the foundation of the band’s start. Everything we’ve done and everyone we know is connected to that home. We had to make this (video) in honor of our great experience.”
