Hard Evidence - Blaze Of Glory
St Louis streetpunk quintet Hard Evidence return to the blog today a couple of years after they featured with the excellent Yesterday's News (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2016/10/hard-evidence-yesterdays-news.html). This time around I'm posting an equally as impressive new song which is blazing a trail for new 12" mini album Last Gasp. It's on Rebellion Records in Europe and LSM Vinyl in The States. 7 tracks (including a cover of Slade's When I'm Dancing I Ain't Fightin) it's described as their catchiest, most melodic record to date with more glam and classic '77 punk influences.
With a line up featuring Ryan Brown (vocals), Bryan Clarkson (guitar), Jim Ulrich (guitar), Dave Jafari (drums) and Nathan Pionke (bass), the band enter their 5th year as a well honed outfit at the top of their game. You can get more info on them here : https://www.facebook.com/HardEvidenceSTL/
If you like your streetpunk and oi to be catchy as hell then this is the band for you. This is the lead track on the new record, it's "a true story about a good friend of vocalist Ryan going through a very bad series of events..." Let's hope this release isn't the last gasp of a great band. This is Blaze Of Glory...
