“Wow, ESE is like Tex-Mex Motorhead, they blew the doors off of that joint.” – Sudden Death’s Joe Shithead
Ese is a unique mash up of Punk, Rock n Roll, and just a touch of Hardcore and Metal. Ese started in the early 2000s, spending their first years finding and refining their signature sound to their local Houston music scene. Over the years they have toured all over the USA which led to them being noticed and signed by Zodiac Killer Records. Until 2014, all original members of ESE worked hard to get the band to where they are today. After the departure of Knotch, one of the driving forces behind Ese, the band made the tough decision to continue. With the addition of Edward and Chris, the renewed energy and the incredible sound and fury of the band has floored audiences around America which landed them a spot on the Sudden Death Records roster, where ESE happily joins the ranks of amazing artist such as The Damned, MDC, The Vibrators, Real McKenzies, and DOA.
