babygotbacktalk is a D-I-why?-because-we-gotta punk party from New York City. Formed in 2017, the band initially consisted of vocalist/bassist G’Ra Asim, violinist Rhiana Hernandez, and lead guitarist/vocalist Jake Lazaroff. After years of sharing bills with local compatriots like Choked Up, Universe Ignore Her and Gibbons– acts that were all anchored by the potent pairing of guitarist Rachel Alicea and drummer Wes Ruiz– babygotbacktalk welcomed Alicea and Ruiz into the fold. Bgbt is what punk looks like in the 2020s: driven by a DIY ethic, conversant with social issues–especially as they pertain to gender and race, enabled by interweb, bankrolled by day jobs, comprised of diverse members, powered by a rad likeminded community, resonant with the most venerable iterations of rock ‘n’ roll but firmly committed to injecting some new flavor into the mold. We’ve released a pair of EPs in 2017’s Take This The Wrong Way and 2018’s Up In Open Arms. Our full-length debut, 2020’s Genre Reveal Party, was mixed by Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, Senses Fail, Yellowcard).
