Strike Anywhere reveal new single ‘Frontier Glitch’
New album ‘Nightmares Of The West’ out July 17th via Pure Noise Record.
With just weeks to go until the release of their new EP, punk veterans Strike Anywhere are excited to share another single. Fans can listen to the unyielding ‘Frontier Glitch’ now. “It’s where the title for this record was found, the shortest and most ferocious of the songs on the record” shares vocalist Thomas Barnett. “It’s about the lifelong project of trying to de-couple yourself from the runaway train of imperialism, exceptionalism, and all the mass psychosis that comes with dishonest histories, fake victories and the death cult of nationalism. It’s a song about peace and the only way to get it is to find our power to shut down the nations, the economies on our backs and the borders across our bodies”.
He continues: “It’s for a general strike in the face of the state monopoly on violence, to get free from the shadows of monuments to history’s criminals, and to finally choose a loving and honest landscape for our future. Let the ship burn, we’re the ocean – in every shade in every color”.
‘Nightmares Of The West’ might be Strike Anywhere’s first new music in over a decade, but in some ways the five-piece hasn’t changed at all. These seven songs – six brand new originals and a cover of ‘Opener’ by London punks Blocko – are as full of fire and fury as anything the band has written since forming in Richmond, VA in 1999. At the same time, this EP infuses the band’s ideological vision with the perspective its members have now, both as people in general, but also as political activists and musicians currently living in the USA – somewhere that’s markedly different from how it was when ‘Iron Front’, their last album, was released in 2009.
