BORING, THE: Craving for Change: LP+CD

Strasbourg, France’s The Boring play melodic hardcore with some nods to crusty and emocore. The lead singer shouts his overtly political, struggle-oriented lyrics with the rest of the band kicking in some backup vocals here and there. It’s not perfect by any means—for instance far too many of the songs are similar in sound—but the sincerity and passion are definitely there. I could see these guys kicking ass live.
