"A stress position is a form of torture in which a prisoner is forced to put all of their weight on just one or two muscles.The intention is to cause their body maximum pain and stress, in hopes that they will submit to authority or give up information. Metaphorically speaking, the term could be used to describe the conditions in which many minorities are living in the USA: oppressed, impoverished, and at risk of being killed or imprisoned for merely existing.

Portland band STRESS POSITION, who draw their name from this torturous practice, play heavy, dark post-punk inspired by the likes of Killing Joke, Shellac, The Melvins, Unwound, and The Birthday Party. With the increasingly dystopian state of US affairs, combined with songwriter Jose De Lara's experience as a Mexican-American, it’s only natural for their music to take the shape of highly political, justifiably angry, anti-authoritarian noise rock."
-Cat Jones

"From start to finish they take a groove and ride it for all it's worth, stepping on and laying off the dissonance pedal to great effect. Add on some astute lyrical content and you have yourself a winner, kids."
-Jimmy Alvarado // RAZORCAKE MAGAZINE

"Stress Position has that gruff, gritty and raw quality that recalls greats like Fugazi and Rites of Spring."
-Cervante Pope // WILLAMETTE WEEK
