The Long Island punk sound that’s been heavily propagated by the work horses at Dead Broke is alive and well and living in Hate Your Friends. Coming into their own in the garages and living rooms of Denton, TX, they’ve developed a sound that echoes the importance of personal connections in this increasingly alienating world. A couple years ago they were the first band I saw on Sunday at Awesome Fest. I thought I had reached the point in my weekend where I was incapable of enjoying anything. They proved me wrong.
