CAUSE FOR ALARM: Self-titled: 7”

Also referred to as the Anthology 7”, this is Cause For Alarm’s first release, repressed for Record Store Day on vinyl by Victory Records for the first time in years. Hardcore punk with fast and super catchy riffs, as well as great vocals by Keith Burkhardt (the only permanent member of the band through their tumultuous two-decade existence), this 7” has everything a fan of hardcore punk will love. If you’ve never heard this, get to your local record store and hope they still have a copy, or find it on CD. It’s required listening.
