Punk rock band Sweeping Promises will perform at the Bishop on Thursday

Sweeping Promises, a punk rock band, will perform at Bishop Bar at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Adults 18 and older can participate. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased on the venue’s website.

The duo, Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug, started making music in Arkansas. When they moved to Boston, they created several underground bands on the East Coast, according to the venue’s website.

The band hails from a reverberating, disused concrete lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, according to the venue’s website.

Sweeping Promises’ debut album “Hunger for a Way Out” was released in 2020. The venue’s website said the album was tracked with a single-mic technique, eliminating some of the electronic representation of the his.

Their latest single, “Pain Without a Touch,” is a subtle reimagining but intensifies their energy, said NPR writer Lars Gotrich.

According to the venue’s website, Virginia’s Feel It Records label manager Sam Richardson said there was a synth sound and pop appeal to their music.

“Angled guitars and sharp synth notes float atop a raw rhythm section, while Lira Mondal’s effervescent vocals really define the sound of Sweeping Promises,” said Richardson.

Participants must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination and wear masks on site.
