Filth is Eternal

Despite the name, Seattle’s formerly titled F*cked and Bound always felt fundamentally untethered, a wild thing. Comprised of vocalist Lisa Mungo (He Whose Ox is Gored, former touring member of Daughters), guitarist Brian McClelland (He Whose Ox is Gored), bassist Rah Davis (Skelator, Cages, former touring member of Cattle Decapitation), and drummer Mathew Chandler (Reburied), the band achieved an air of unhinged freedom mainly by thrashing their way through unassuming, beloved punk venues, writhing across unwashed floors and DIY spaces, hosting their own sort of hardcore communal exorcisms. And so, accelerated by isolation, a rechristening seemed fitting to more accurately celebrate their divine vulgarity: FILTH IS ETERNAL.

Of the name change, vocalist Lisa Mungo explains, “I've always believed that a
transformative moment would hit during the lifespan of this outfit, but relegated these notions to the future tense. However, our collective experience over the past twelve plus months made it clear that the moment was presenting itself now.” If nothing else, surely this strange and painful time apart has proven just how illusory our ideas of what the future will be like are, and that it is important to take adaptive action in the present.
