Tenement is a three piece rock band from Appleton, Wisconsin formed in 2006. They are often associated with the American hardcore punk scene.[2] Their recorded output has been described as everything from "noise pop" to "fuzz punk",[3][4] while in a live setting they are often known for experimentation, improvisation, and high-energy performance.[5][6] The visual art of singer/guitarist Amos Pitsch is associated with most of their records, as well as several records by other notable punk and hardcore bands.[7] In 2016, they were included in Rolling Stone's "10 Great Modern Punk Bands".[8]

Live in Raleigh NC, 2012
