BUM CITY SAINTS: New Beginnings: 7”

I don’t know if it was because of the three-word name with “city” in the middle, or because it was on Pirates Press, but I was really expecting some oi/street punk stuff. I was wrong. BumCity Saints have got something going on that I want to call “melodic hardcore” but that conjures up the wrong image. They’re a hardcore punk band with melody. They’ve got raw guitars and vocals to match. There are choruses that you can sing along to and breakdowns and speed-ups that you can spill your beer in the pit to. I really, really like this!
