Suffering Luna is a hardcore punk band based in Los Angeles, California. They are notable for their early contributions to the punk subgenre known as powerviolence and their split releases with Dystopia and Gasp.[1] The band has existed since the early 1990s. Their music is a blend of crust and powerviolence with neo-psychedelia and noise. The inclusion of noise in their sound has led to comparisons with fellow pioneering powerviolence band Man is the Bastard/Bastard Noise.[2]
