White Lung // Sorry
The Vancouver punks in White Lung are back with their followup to 2010’s It’s the Evil. The album is called Sorry and it pretty much picks up right where their debut left off. After hearing a couple of tracks from this album I went back and checked out their debut (thanks to a recommendation from Waylon Thornton) before I really delved into Sorry. Man, if you guys are looking for some good, energetic punk to give you the old one-two, then you’d do well to check out White Lung.
I think the greatest thing about the band is that they carry a bittersweet edge. As far as punk rock goes, Sorry is pretty catchy and accessible, but the band never forfeits any of their edge in the process. It’s still pretty cutthroat and it slaps you upside the head with furious pace (the album clocks in at around 20 minutes). Wall of noise thanks to screeching guitars? Check. Chugging bass and monster percussion? Check. Confrontational aggro vocals? CHECK! Don’t sleep on this thing, it’s out now on Deranged Records.
