Record Label: ADD Records
Genre: Punk
Band Link: link

Great release from the Florida punk band formerly known as The Horror.  Energetic 2-minute tunes have a thick guitar sound, good bass, and vocals that spit out lyrics without being too aggressive.   “Whoa-oh” melodies help the (admittedly above average) politically-charged lyrics go down.

What I like most is that this is straight-up punk rock with a feel-good vibe and no street punk bravado.   With a bit more singalong catchiness, the songs could be more memorable, but the album is a solid listen.  Perfect for when you’re angry but not too angry.

Bottom Line: I miss this kind of boilerplate but competent punk rock.
Notable Tracks: A New Reason To Rise, History Does What?, I Believe This Knife Is Yours
