Drunkdriver – Knife Day (Fan Death)

Drunkdriver are a good punk band. People hate them for various reasons, their live shows are often exhibitionist and over the top, also guitarist Kristy Greene plays some of the most aggressive slide guitar since Teenage Jesus. On this new 7” the band sound more unhinged yet tighter than last year’s full length on Parts Unknown. Which makes sense as the band has hit the road and developed their chops. Michael Berdan’s vocals sound genuinely paranoid and the guitar/drum one-two punch sound mean and ready to go. Both tracks are solid and it’s a fine addition to your contempo-punk files.
