Former Hüsker Dü Bassist Greg Norton Joins Porcupine

Written by:

Porcupine have always been one of the most potent bands around but the Wisconsin outfit just got a little more sting.

The band revealed last week that in the wake of bassist Davy Reinders’ departure, former Hüsker Dü bassist Greg Norton has joined the band.

On their Facebook page Porcupine wrote: “We were bummed to see Davey Reinders step down from his bass duties with Porcupine this year — definitely tough to consider replacing him with anyone. But after a little break, we are back at the rehearsal space with a new lineup featuring Greg Norton of Husker Du…”

Porcupine are a power trio in every sense of the word–their compositions are searing blasts of fuzz-drenched beauty tangled up in the gears of regret, loss and what’s left of our battered hearts. They play with momentum, velocity and nerve.

With two great albums under their belts and their last effort the Steve Albini-helmed EP Carrier Wave (2015), they’re currently at work on their new record.

The band is now comprised of: Casey Virock (vocals, guitar), Greg Norton (bass, vocals) and Ian Prince (drums).
