Richmond Virginia punks Strike Anywhere unleash a powerful new album, Dead FM, featuring high-energy politically-active melodic power punk next week. Veterans of the Warped Tour, Strike Anywhere formed in 1999, and still features their original line-up. You can check out the video for the title track from Dead FM on MySpace, but if you want to preview their music, just click on the song titles below.
“Instinct” seems to be a letter to their fans, whose grass roots support has been key to the band’s success. It’s a fine slab of hot punk, with a deceptively mellow opening before they unleash the bombast.
“Prisoner Echoes” is an intense political commentary that is not really work safe, but it is pretty strong stuff, reminiscent of Green Day’s “American Idiot.”
