The new song by Borracho, “Know My Name,” takes the point of view of a killer, which is fine, because the D.C. metal band is heading to some Viking-ass/Goth-ass nations pretty soon, including Denmark and Germany. The tune itself has a strong whiff of Southern ‘tude and also some circa-’91 Sub Pop stank. “Know My Name” is on a split 7-inch single with Boston’s Cortez (with artwork by D.C.’s Matt Corrado), which you can preview on Bandcamp. Both bands, as well as Ohio’s Valley of the Sun, will play April 19 at Velvet Lounge.
