VITAMIN X SHARE ‘MODERN MAN’ FROM THEIR NEW ALBUM, ‘AGE OF PARANOIA’

VITAMIN X SHARE ‘MODERN MAN’ FROM THEIR NEW ALBUM, ‘AGE OF PARANOIA’
Salad Days

Veteran Amsterdam hardcore punk group Vitamin X debut the first single from their sixth album, ‘Age Of Paranoia’, the band’s first release for Southern Lord.

About the track the band remark, “the lyrics are the starting point of a bigger theme; the age we’re living in, is an age of confusion and paranoia… more than ever, we’re controlled and affected by media, technology, mobile devices, internet, social networks, governments, politics, climate change, pollution, fake news, etc. ‘Modern Man’ is a sarcastic song in which we wonder if our so-called ‘progress” isn’t actually ‘regress.’”

‘Age Of Paranoia’, the latest chapter in the band’s lineage, was recorded by Igor Wouters at ARC Studios in Amsterdam, and includes several special guest guitar solos by J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr., Witch) and Bubba Dupree (Void, Soundgarden, Dave Grohl’s Probot, Brant Bjork). ‘Age Of Paranoia’ offers sixteen volatile tracks, packed into a succinct, white-knuckled twenty-eight minutes. The album surges with rapid-fire punk angst, replete with ripping rock leads and raised-fist, group-chanting anthems. To complete the recording, the cover artwork is created by Marald (Baroness, Kylesa, High On Fire).
