Violent Affair - Trapped Like Rats
Today I'm bringing you some brand new and really rather wonderful "Fast As Fuck Punk-Rock" from Oklahoma City.
Violent Affair have been stoking the flames of rebellion since 2009. They play fast yet catchy street punk which reminds me of The Casualties at their best, other influences they mention include Krum Bums, Clit 45 and The Pinkerton Thugs.
The band comprises of Dave Affair (vocals), The Jesse Machine (guitar), Tony Cozzaglio (bass), Dom The Destroyer (guitar) and Ryan Violence (drums). Seasoned musicians all, they've also featured in a number of other bands including The Rippers, The Violence and The Costellos.
Their debut release was 2009's self released Armageddon ep and this was followed a year later by debut album, Stand Trial. Since then, Jailhouse Records have released the Call To Arms 7", The Pressure Is Rising ep and album number 2, The Cockroach Theory.
The song I'm posting today is from the newly self released ep Anthems Of Defiance In A Dying World Volume 1. It's the first of a planned 5 eps in the series which will eventually make up a full length album. If every installment is this good we're in for a treat. You can check it out here : http://violentaffair.bandcamp.com/album/anthemsof-defiance-in-a-dying-world-vol-1-denial/ .
I recently posted the link on the new punk music group on Facebook and it seemed to go down very well (and rightly so). Strap in, this is one of the best songs of 2015, it's called Trapped Like Rats.....
