About United Nations
Born in N.Y.C. in 2005, this self-proclaimed "emo power-violence" band channels the mid-'90s movement of the same name. Featuring Geoff Rickly of Thursday on vocals, it's also highly speculated to feature Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw/Head Automatica on backing vocals, Ben Koller of Converge on drums, and possibly members of Made Out of Babies and the Number 12 Looks Like You pulling guitar duties. Because these artists are all under contract with their respective record labels for their more prominent bands, their identities cannot be confirmed, but that didn't deter United Nations' eponymous 2008 debut on Eyeball Records from its seismic placement on the underground radar.
