It’s not punk rock if you’re not pissing someone off. Hit The Switch will piss some of you off, and that’s a good thing. When a band names their album Domestic Tranquility and Social Justice you know they ain’t messing around. So yeah, there’s a message here and you may find it leaning too far towards socialism for your political tastes (that’s definitely the case with my father’s political bent…Hi Dad!) but Hit The Switch won’t try to convert you to any one way of thinking, they just want you to think. I suggest you close your political ears and listen with your musical ears and be converted by their fast, catchy, aggressive take on punk rock.
By the way, this is the second half of their album, available as a free download for a limited time from Nitro. The first half of the album was likewise available last month.
Nepotism note: I’m employed by the band’s label. But I dig this band and you dig free music so, so what?
