For those keeping track, The Raging Nathans have premiered several singles from their forthcoming record, ’Still Spitting Blood’, sharing a new track every two weeks.

The sixth song from the record is ‘The Answer (Smoke ‘Em)’. Bassist/vocalist Christian Roerig says, “Essentially, this is a song about offering support to someone who you used to look up to as they deteriorate. You’re the one who has to help pull them out of some shit while maintaining a safe distance at the same time because misery loves company. It ends on this big kind of bridge section that is kinda hopeful sounding after what I consider to be a dark and kinda sad song.” The Dayton, Ohio punks are set to release their fifth album, ‘Still Spitting Blood’, via Rad Girlfriend Records with an exclusive color vinyl release in the U.K. through Brassneck Records on January 19, 2023. It was recorded by The Copyrights’ Luke McNeil, and it offers up 10 songs in roughly 20 minutes. Formed in 2009, the Raging Nathans have become known for their prolific recorded output and tight live performances. Over the last decade, have released four LPs, a score of EPs and split 7-inches, two singles collections, and are about to embark on an ambitious new plan to release a new song every two weeks, culminating in the release of their newest LP ‘Still Spitting Blood’. Following in the footsteps of their predecessors but always blazing their own path, the evolution of the band is on constant display on every release, always looking forward while never forgetting their roots. From high-speed hardcore to complex guitar driven jams, the Raging Nathans always put the punk before the pop and have unapologetically cemented themselves as one of the most hardworking DIY bands of their era.
