Post Profit Release ‘Self Defeater’ EP Today & Band Shares ‘Two Toxic’ Visualizer






Newly signed SHARPTONE RECORDS band POST PROFIT — Matt Jackson [vocals, guitar], Nick Hawner [guitar +vocals], and Zach Hicks [drums + vocals] — release their six-song EP Self Defeater today, November 17, via SharpTone Records.



“With Two Toxic, we wanted to do something different and show a more emotional side with what we call an ‘anti’ love song,” the band says. “Lyrically, it touches on the feeling of being in love, but also highlights the negative effects that often come with it.  We put aggressive driving guitars and accents up against gentle delicate moments to resemble that push and pull effect.”

The band continues, “We’re excited for you all to hear this song and the rest of the EP Self Defeater in its fullness. We’ve poured our heart, soul, and emotion into it and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did creating it for you. Thank you so much.”

Fresh off a spate of dates supporting Nothing More and Dead Poet SocietyPost Profit are currently wrapping up a co-headline tour in North America with Silly Goose with much more touring planned for 2024.

Some would say Post Profit have been waiting for this moment since the cradle, with each member being introduced to musical instruments between the ages of 2 to 6. 

Zach and Matt forged a friendship as toddlers ever since their moms became best friends from church in Longview, TX. Nick would later learn of Matt‘s vocal prowess through the high school intercom. “Matt’s father was the high school principal,” explains Nick. “And he’d have Matt on there in the mornings singing about refraining from drugs and alcohol and striving for good school attendance.” 

Over the next few years, the trio would really get to know each other from attending and performing at local shows. Nick and Zach especially hit it off and quickly became inseparable, spending much of their time listening to music, eager to put their own band together. Meanwhile, Matt was sinking his teeth into a Dallas based metalcore band called Far From Earth.
During early 2017, Matt started hosting open jams every Sunday at a smoky East Texas dive bar and one night asked Zach to join on drums. Zach dragged his new friend Nick along on guitar and the trio quickly formed a strong musical bond. They would soon start slipping originals into their covers sets and after months of unrelenting practices and bar jams they booked their first show at a Halloween party in Tyler, TX.
With the experience of countless gigs across the South, Post Profit soon gained a reputation for their commanding and impactful live performance, including powerful 2021 and 2022 performances at Welcome To Rockville in Daytona, FL. Rallying around influences such as Deftones, Incubus, Failure, and Quicksand, the band refined their original songs and sound into what would become their 2022 debut self-produced album When You Think It’s Right It’s Always Wrong. The release garnered over a million cumulative streams independently, and the success of their single Smother grabbed the attention of SharpTone Records, eventually landing them a deal.
