Powerful, political New York hardcore is what you’ll find on this 7”. Six short but stellar, pummeling blasts of socially conscious hardcore punk with lyrics covering topics including immigrants’ rights and drone warfare. Sonically, you’ll find crunching guitars, an incredibly tight and heavy rhythm section, and a throaty rasp from frontman Joey Steel. Comes on a lovely translucent blue swirl of vinyl and includes a collage zine containing the lyrics to the tunes.
