Jobber – the New York band led by guitarist/vocalist Kate Meizner and drummer Mike Falcone, both current members of Hellrazor – have announced their debut EP and shared its lead single. The Hell in a Cell EP comes out October 21 via Exploding in Sound. Check out a music video for ‘Entrance Theme’ below.
“Hell in a Cell can be interpreted two ways,” Meizner said in a statement. “It’s the name of a notorious annual event where wrestlers fight for titles in a giant cage – but to me it’s also being a worker but to me it’s also being a worker in a cubicle cell or warehouse or rideshare vehicle, living the hell of spending most waking hours at an exploitative job devoid of basic labor protections.”
Of ‘Entrance Theme’, she told FLOOD: “I challenged myself to go against my natural intuition to write songs with lots of twists and turns, and instead pen a cohesive, fuzzed-out pop song in the style of The Cars and The Rentals to be an entrance theme for a babyface wrestler – which is wrestling jargon to describe one of the ‘good guys’.”
