Western Addiction Podcast Interview by Todd Taylor and Clara Acosta [revised]

Western Addiction is a band that exists in the gaps. Between Black Flagian hardcore and Black Sabbathian hard rock. Between Bad Religion’s “what the fuck was that word?” and Motörhead’s lizard brain motto of “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” The words are compelling, the beat undeniable.
