Gulch breaking up

Saturday, September 4, 2021 6:57 PM PT / 11,362 views

In a surprising move given the rapid expanse of their fanbase during the past two years, Gulch have revealed plans to disband in early 2022 following a handful of final shows.

The Santa Cruz, California hardcore group has announced two farewell shows thus far, with several more pending (you can view the latest information below). According to Gulch guitarist Cole Kakimoto, "[I'm] ready to rock with my best friends a few more times."

Who will take the mantle with the fake "crazy" singer shtick after they're gone


anonymous 47 days ago

If they come through Chicago I will fight every one of you at the show


anonymous 47 days ago

Hopefully Drain is the opener


anonymous 47 days ago

ok now Sunami, Spy, C4, Drain, and every other one word name, new-old zoomer throwback band


anonymous 47 days ago

Their this is hardcore 19 set was awesome but yeah they've or at least the singer have become douchey beatdown caricatures since then


anonymous 47 days ago

Drain is awesome but sunami is garbage and their fanbase is nothing but cretins


anonymous 47 days ago

Yall trippin. Gulch f*cks. Sunami f*cks. Everyone hating has gotta be over 30. lmao.


anonymous 47 days ago

Aren't all the dudes in gulch over 30?


anonymous 47 days ago

Who?


anonymous 47 days ago

Gotta work in the mall now


anonymous 47 days ago

But are they vaccinated?


anonymous 47 days ago

This is booty sweat


anonymous 47 days ago

I'm giving them a listen for the first time right now; they're defiantly more entertaining than this Clemson/Georgia game


anonymous 47 days ago

Cool one less they/themcore band


anonymous 47 days ago

I heard the singer isn't vaccinated.


anonymous 47 days ago

^^^^^^^ Right on.


anonymous 47 days ago

I'm gonna take it step further than that turnstile shitting guy and cum in the pit


anonymous 47 days ago

shoulda been Sunami


anonymous 47 days ago

I'm over 30. Never heard of this band!


anonymous 47 days ago

They won't make any money on this tour because they have to pay their 20 goons they bring in tour to stand behind them on stage and jump anyone who gets too close to the singer


anonymous 47 days ago

Good riddance. Whack shitty band for the worst generation of hardcore kids ever. Take the rest of this over hyped shit with you.


anonymous 47 days ago

I can't wait for the day, when playing the lottery is all you play.


anonymous 47 days ago

^^ Do something useful with that pathetic excuse of a life you have and end it. Also, not sure why people get butthurt over hardcore bands breaking up after only a few years as a band. A lot of the worst hardcore bands stay together for long periods of time and usually start playing done to death alternative rock.


anonymous 47 days ago

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - No one


anonymous 46 days ago

Alright. Who touched some underage booty and is about to get canceled?


anonymous 46 days ago

What happened? A Singer turned racist after being on gear for a year? B Or blew out his voice so bad he ain't never coming back? C Or the fact that touring f*cks up his work out schedule? D all the above


anonymous 46 days ago

Singer went full Qanon MAGA patriot


anonymous 46 days ago

People who think Gulch are overrated overrate themselves


anonymous 46 days ago

I showed the singer of Gulch my balls after gym class back in high school. I was like "hey dude wanna see a monkey brain?" and he was like "tf?" Dude didn't know what hit em'. No amount of music fame they get will ever take that away ever.


anonymous 46 days ago

Joe Biden voters aren't stoked.

anonymous 46 days ago

Chris Hansen here, why dont you take a seat?


anonymous 46 days ago

Comrades are bummed.


anonymous 46 days ago

Guys who hit their girlfriends are stoked.


anonymous 46 days ago

Hey lambgoat deleting comments. I c u


anonymous 46 days ago

Lol i knew those pousers would break up just to get attention.


anonymous 46 days ago

This is a band? I thought they were some kind of pyramid scheme to sell merch to ugly girls with septum piercings to cover up for the fact that they listen to NeverShoutNever more than any band on TIHC


anonymous 46 days ago

^ No they aren't a real band. They are a concept, never even played a live show. Couple of guys sharing files back and forth. A failed experiment.


webmaster 46 days ago

I don't give a f*ck if you see me deleting comments. Stop typing stupid shit.


anonymous 46 days ago

Webby - these comments are the only reason your site is getting any meaningful traffic again. Don't be such a whiny bitch when someone calls you out.


anonymous 46 days ago

Making $2 more per month probably not worth the risk of being sued


anonymous 46 days ago

Mart G. here, as long as I don't lose the funky hard sounds of rhcp, every other band can break up. No care ever.


anonymous 46 days ago

Webby is a sage


anonymous 46 days ago

I'm waiting for the next Santana album to drop featuring Bieber and sheeran


anonymous 46 days ago

Getting sued?? Getting sued over what exactly? The webmaster of this site has zero responsibility for what people post in a comment section. All he has to do is make an effort to delete some especially bad ones, and he doesn't legally even have to do that.


anonymous 46 days ago

He must have some responsibility that's why he deleted the bad onesp


anonymous 46 days ago

He has a moral responsibility but not legal. For example a label may pressure him to get rid of them or FSU may threaten to beat him down


anonymous 46 days ago

I hear the last show is HoodsFest at The Cave


anonymous 46 days ago

These guys should tour with attack attack


anonymous 46 days ago

Dudes In CYC punching the air rn


anonymous 46 days ago

Hoodsfest at the cave? Doubt the Hoods crowd would be into these dudes and I can't picture all the fake bangers/cholos and they/them kids having a good time there. The pc dorks would get offended by Mikey Hood's stage banter and the fake cholos would get clowned on so hard.


anonymous 46 days ago

I'm gonna take it step further than that turnstile shitting guy and cum in the pit ^ Not surprised that this band attracts coomers. Y'all gen z tik Tok degenerates can't do No Nut November or No Fap Summer. Smdh


anonymous 46 days ago

anonymous 1 hour ago He has a moral responsibility but not legal. For example a label may pressure him to get rid of them or FSU may threaten to beat him down Good break down of the ethics, but I don't think FSU beats down anymore, these days they pop out


anonymous 46 days ago

FSU can SMD. Nothing like ruining every show for 30 years and keeping countless worthwhile bands from getting any exposure just because they don't ride your dick.


anonymous 46 days ago

Singer got promoted to manager at the GNC he works at. Corporate bitch now.


anonymous 46 days ago

Mikey Hood here, whoever said I was smoking meth is a liar


anonymous 46 days ago

"To see any white or white-adjacent hardcore band self-abolish is a dream come true. Unfortunately this won't change the fact that GULCH's white-adjacent privilege has allowed them to benefit by a system built upon white supremacy, thus making them complicit in furthering white supremacy. Good riddance and power to the people." -Anaiah (ZULU)


anonymous 46 days ago

^^^^^ How bored are you kids? We ran all the boneheads out of the scene while you were still in diapers and now you've got some sort of FOMO thinking secret racists are hiding everywhere. Enjoy living a life of manufactured fear 😂 Glad we could make it safe for you, HA.


anonymous 46 days ago

Tommy Norcal here, aka KORN KOBB TV, aka @Stone_ColdET on Twitter. Still washed up, still living alone, still running my mouth on the internet about others in the scene. Thankfully a crew called ANTIFA brought me in so I can find purpose <3


anonymous 46 days ago

Who would have thought throwing up football gang signs and punching women in their mouths would cause you to break up? Lead singer went to GNC a few times and thought he was tough. Voice sounds like he smoked 100 packs of Marlboro's and ate rocks right before his set. Crap band, crap state! Trump 2024!


anonymous 46 days ago

Ricky Trigga already locked them in for next years Northern Alliance. GULCH2022

The singer from that shit pop punk band Screeching Weasel was hitting female fans before it was cool


anonymous 45 days ago

Why are they breaking up? These guys are going to miss out on potentially 10's of dollars as a successful hardcore band.


anonymous 45 days ago

We ran all the boneheads out of the scene while you were still in diapers and now you've got some sort of FOMO thinking secret racists are hiding everywhere. of course you would say that because you and your generation are lazy fat asses who love to take credit for things that never even happened. You want us to praise you? For what?


anonymous 45 days ago

Can't wait till the real story comes out as to why this band is calling it quits at the height of their popularity. You're trippin' if you don't think there's more to this story.


anonymous 45 days ago

They aren't breaking up for another 3-4 months. If it was something big they would have called it quits already. Probably somebody / multiple people graduated from college or got real jobs


anonymous 45 days ago

The singer is so f*cking jacked and alpha i think most of us would let him make out with us


anonymous 45 days ago

The singer sounded like shit at their last show anyway. Probably for the best. They had their 15 minutes


anonymous 45 days ago

Imagine being in a "crew" with a name like you're a gang in 2021 and doing it without irony


anonymous 45 days ago

" of course you would say that because you and your generation are lazy fat asses who love to take credit for things that never even happened. You want us to praise you? For what? " Right, tell that the every bonehead that got his face smashed in and his shirt ripped off his back. Let me know when you can bench the bar sweetheart. BRB, hopefully breaking my 1rm of 375lbs on bench today.


anonymous 45 days ago

Crews are gangs period, especially in cali where everyone is waving guns and doing drive bys all the time. Remember Nails comes from "Stabnard" and those mfs don't play


anonymous 45 days ago

Right, tell that the every bonehead that got his face smashed in and his shirt ripped off his back. Let me know when you can bench the bar sweetheart. BRB, hopefully breaking my 1rm of 375lbs on bench today. Go back to your European shit hole and take some vitamin D you f*cking loser


anonymous 45 days ago

lol of course Todd Jones would boast about nails being from a place nicknamed stabnard like it makes him a tough guy


anonymous 45 days ago

' Go back to your European shit hole and take some vitamin D you f*cking loser ' Yawn. Go get a job princess.

Lambgoat staff deleting comments because they're massive virtue signaling pussies.

anonymous 45 days ago

^ just stop posting all your nazi recruiting bullshit, your amateur porn stories, and keep your misogyny to yourself. If you do that you won't see anything deleted f*ckwit


anonymous 45 days ago

Hey lambgoat, freedom of speech you nazis


anonymous 45 days ago

Freedom to not see any comments from Trump supporters


anonymous 45 days ago

Gulch? More like mulch am I right?


anonymous 45 days ago

Gulch sucks


anonymous 45 days ago

I tell the singer Elliot I miss him so much -his ex boyfriend


anonymous 45 days ago

Gulch is/was more about merch than music, style than substance. Proof was people talked more about their merch than their music & a case could be made that they sold more t-shirts than records. They probably put out as many t-shirts as songs or close to it. Gulch is (soon to be "was") the Hypebeast of Hardcore. Good riddance. Hopefully Sunami, Section H8 & Law Of Power (all fake toughguys like Gulch), Drain, Spy & Scowl are next. All these Cali bands are overhyped only because they're a thing where they are but they ain't shit anywhere else. Besides that they played outdoor superspreaders any hardcore punk, vato, cholo cosplaying idiot went to cuz they were free.


anonymous 45 days ago

freedom of speech doesn't extend to a website you don't own. You're free to create a blog and yell into the void


anonymous 45 days ago

Freedom does extend to that


anonymous 45 days ago

I cant believe the report abuse button hasn't been pushed on every comment so far by you nerd virgins


anonymous 45 days ago

Merch is how bands make money. What right do you have to criticize gulch for doing that? It turns out Cali bands are hella smart at finances, marketing and making money. Gulch members went in, made a killing, now they are jumping out to move to the next stage. Meanwhile you and your east coast hardcore buddies are still driving to job sites at 4:30am and living paycheck to paycheck. Maybe time to re-evaluate what success is.


anonymous 45 days ago

GET A SENSE OF HUMOR YOU UPTIGHT FRUITS. GOES FOR BOTH YOU LIBS N TRUMPOS. DON'T READ THE COMMENTS IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM


anonymous 45 days ago

Imagine a member of this band seeing 88 comments about this story thinking people care.


anonymous 45 days ago

Lol never heard of this band until i saw this article. Highly doubt they made money lollll especially split between like 6 people.


anonymous 45 days ago

What if the shows cancel due to covid? Postpone break up?


anonymous 45 days ago

Trump lost. Covid and science won. Enjoy suffering you knuckledraggers.


anonymous 45 days ago

Florida sucks and so does orange man. Enjoy your freedumb before you are on a ventilator. 5'7 cucks who wear Nine Line are stoked.


anonymous 45 days ago

Who the f*ck cares if gulch voted for trump? I f*ckin don't


anonymous 45 days ago

I can criticize Gulch as much as I fu. cking want to. They realized they were merch over music thus lame & ended it to avoid further embarrassment. Next stage being a merch only band. Cali bands are InstaTikTok garbage for like people who'll be gone when they break up.


anonymous 45 days ago

I'll fight the singer on stage at one of these


anonymous 45 days ago

Merch only band is exactly the shit red state Republican bands would do, f*cking grifters


anonymous 45 days ago

If any members of the band are reading this, I bought multiple gulch hoodies and sold them for 3x as much on depop ton your dumb ass fans. What are you gonna do about it? Pussies


anonymous 45 days ago

^ f*cking rip your mask off and dose you with covid


anonymous 45 days ago

I've already had covid and I'm vaxxed


anonymous 45 days ago

^ boring, try again.


anonymous 45 days ago

I pioneered the whole "blabblah here" impersonations through these comments about a decade ago. Im so proud it is living on


anonymous 45 days ago

RIP HOYA


anonymous 45 days ago

The singer is such a crazy Billy bad ass


anonymous 45 days ago

I'd fight him one on one but they would never allow that


anonymous 45 days ago

Hes a little dude tbh


anonymous 45 days ago

Singer is 5 foot 7


anonymous 45 days ago

Oh no what mediocre band will I jock next. Tbh the gay slipknot riffs ruin this band for me. Candy is a better band and So was Modern Pain.


anonymous 45 days ago

Gulch & all these other one-word bandname bands from Cali are the 2021 version of the mid-late 90s swing revival.


anonymous 44 days ago

I'll gulch the singer down any day, he is so f*cking hacked and ripped


anonymous 44 days ago

singer is small af what ya'll on of course he is a little ripped he looks to be 5 ft tall and weighs 150 lbs. All young ass kids look like that. All they have to do are a few situps and crunches a day to look like that. Call me when you are over 30, 240 lbs and swole


anonymous 44 days ago

f*ck unity


anonymous 44 days ago

if your band is part of a "hardcore crew" then i don't wanna listen, you SHOULD break up, and you need to wake up early for your shift at Journeyz


anonymous 44 days ago

Anyone that says "Cali" needs to be vaccinated and shot into the sun.


anonymous 44 days ago

^^^ weird hill to die on, but okay dumbass


anonymous 43 days ago

Antifacore fans are not stoked.


anonymous 37 days ago

Why do so many of you hate gulch? I can understand if you dislike a band but I can't understand why some of you guys are hating gulch to such an extreme extent. Please explain this to me
