Against Me! Post “Thrash Unreal” Video
Against Me!‘s new video for “Thrash Unreal” can be seen below.
Against Me! – New Wave
Artist: Against Me!
Album: New Wave
Label: Sire Records
Purchase: Smart Punk
Release Date: July 10, 2007
Against Me! is one of folk-punk finniest bands out there today. Fronted by Gabel for almost a decade now, Against Me! New Wave is not a renovation of their usual sound Ã¢â‚¬”given the fact that this is their major label debut.
New Wave is stimulating. That is one way of putting it. This album may not be totally new, but it’s Against Me! at their best. One thing that’s new from Against Me! on this album is that they have a summer romance song featuring Tegan from the Tegan and Sara on Ã¢â‚¬Å“Borne on the FM Waves of the HeartÃ¢â‚¬. The song is actually quite good, but a little to long, you will find yourself dragging slowly to the very end. One thing that you are sure to find on New Wave are their political/culture charging lyrics their known to sing about. From their single Ã¢â‚¬Å“White People for PeaceÃ¢â‚¬ to title track Ã¢â‚¬Å“New WaveÃ¢â‚¬ they have a way making their songs sound not too preachy while still getting a message out. The album I think is awesome from start to finish. When I listen to it, I hear progression as songwriters not sellout music as some of their fans may think. If people say they lost their passion, they must have not listened to the songs. The record is great and I advise new and old fans to pick up a copy.
1. New Wave
2. Up the Cuts
3. Trash Unreal
4. White People for Peace
6. Borne on the FM Waves of the Heart
7. Piss and Vinegar
8. American Abroad
10. The Ocean
