about

Diet Cig are here to have fun. They’re here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice-cream on your birthday.

Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 ‘Over Easy’ EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back.

‘Swear I’m Good At This’ is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.

But there’s also a deeper, more powerful fuck-you among the bangers that see Diet Cig grow into an unstoppable and inspiring force. “I’m not being dramatic, I’ve just fucking had it with the things that you say you think that I should be” spits Luciano on ‘Link in Bio’; “I am bigger than the outside shell of my body and if you touch it without asking then you’ll be sorry” she yells on ‘Maid Of The Mist’. It’s the sound of a band doing things on their own terms.

Wrapping up ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ on Halloween 2016, exactly two years after they finished recording ‘Over Easy’ on Halloween 2014, Diet Cig’s first, full-length LP validates the experiences of punks who aren’t always accepted first time around; the punks who throw their deuces up at the dominating bro-dudes and ignite the importance of owning everything that you are.

Track Name: Link In Bio
They say speak your mind but not too loud and
You should love yourself but don’t be too proud
Well i’m done
Can’t always be so fun

I’m not being dramatic
I’ve just fucking had it
With the things that you say you think that i should be
Well i’m done
Can’t always be so fun

I’m done with being a chill girl
I’m trying to take over the world

Don’t tell me to calm down

I know
what i want
so please fuck off

I know
what i want
so please fuck off

Fuck off
Fuck off
Fuck off
Track Name: Barf Day
Just one birthday card sent to me
I missed my own surprise party
It’s me, i’m only 21 years old
And now i’m drinking alone
I use my phone until it dies
Just like my plants
Can’t keep anything alive
Alive

And i’m sick of being my own best friend
Will you be there in the end?

Who said i
Was a nice guy?
Not i

And i’ll tell you just what i want
I’ll tell you just what i want

I just wanna have ice cream on my birthday
Blow the candles out and wish all of my pain away

I know that you’re sorry
I just don’t care

(will you be my, my birthday date)
Track Name: Tummy Ache
Well i’m just a kid, a girl, a runt
And i’m starting to get real sick of
Trying to find my voice
Surrounded by all boys

I’ve been yelling my whole life
And finally it’s time
to make my words count
In a way i haven’t quite figured out

And i don’t need a man
To hold my hand
And that’s just something you’ll never understand x2

Can you hear me?
What if we never figure it out
What if i’m always talking too loud?
And my stomach hurts
Cause it’s hard to be a punk while wearing a skirt
And my stomach hurts
Cause it’s hard to be a punk while wearing a skirt
