Been a good long while since I last heard anything new by the Freeze, and this wasn’t a disappointment. Dunno the vintage of the four tunes here, but by the sound, I’d guess two come from an older session and two of more recent vintage. Three are bang-on mid-tempo tunes with the band’s prototypical mix of hardcore and oddly poppy sensibilities. The closer is a different rendition of “Sacrifice Not Suicide,” a tune some might remember from the Boston Not L.A.comp. Nice to hear they’re not only still kicking around, they’re still coming up with quality tunes, too.
