BANG! New Albums
Friday, 10 June 2011

We have 2 new albums on sale from CHIEF and GREAT CYNICS!

There's an exciting weekend of new music coming up with not 1 but 2 new albums out on Household Name Records!

On sale now through the webstore are -

'Apply Within' by Liverpool's CHIEF - passionate melodic hardcore punk with a political bite taking in subjects from police brutality, the threat to the National Health Service posed by the coalition government, intolerance in all fundamentlist religions and much more. For fans of PROPAGHANDI, STRIKE ANYWHERE and CAPDOWN. The album is available on CD.

'Don't Need Much' by London's GREAT CYNICS (formerly a solo project for Giles Bidder before expanding to a three peice called Cynics with Bob Barrett (drums) and Iona Cairns (bass), then adding Great last month following an objection from an existing US band of the same name). With that all done and dusted you can look forward to hearing 10 honest, infectious soulful indie/punk songs influenced by great bands like The Lemonheads, Cheap Girls, and early Frank Turner/Against Me!. The album is packaged in beautiful digipack designed and laid out by Joe Watson (Attack!Vipers!)

Both albums are on sale now for £6.99 (with free postage in the UK) or snap them both up now for £12 (again with free postage in the UK).

If you don't like buying CDs anymore both albums are available through those digital download stores that are all the rage these days....details on the interweb
