CLASSHOLE: Self-titled: LP

Cool anti-cop artwork houses this debut LP from this dynamite hardcore band from New Orleans. Tempos range from mid to fast, with lyrics covering personal topics more than overt political ones, despite the nifty packaging. Don’t worry, though. There’s at least one blistering anti-pig track included. Only five hundred of these were pressed and will surely be gone soon, so definitely seek it out while you can. Influences range from early hardcore to later powerviolence, with not a single dud song to speak of. Plus, how can you not love a band named Classhole? Highly recommended.
