We're underdogs we stand
As long as there's a chance
As long as we are still breathing....
Later today I'll be broadcasting another Just Some Punk Songs show so for this update I'll feature one of the new punk releases that'll be getting a play. (Show details here if anyone's interested in an hour of new punk music : https://www.facebook.com/events/318192868774258/).
I'm sure you all know Sick Of It All. The New York hardcore veterans formed in 1986 and feature Lou Koller (vocals), Pete Koller (guitars), Craig Setari (bass) and Armand Majidi (drums). Their back catalogue is as extensive as it is impressive and on the evidence of their latest long player they're showing no sign of easing their foot off the accelerator. The album's titled Wake The Sleeping Dragon and it's out now on Century Media. Calling themselves a band that "thrives from frustration" there's plenty of fucked up stuff going on in the world right now to give them more than enough material to garner their lyrics from.
They'll be rounding off 2018 with a couple of US dates before heading back over to Europe in January. You can find details here : https://www.sickofitall.com/
So today's song. As previously mentioned it'll be played on my show later and I'm sure it'll go down well with the animal lovers in the chatroom. It's an outsider anthem, a rousing animal cruelty singalong. They're sharing in the bull's success as the matador falls, this is Bull's Anthem...
