If you’re from Vancouver, you know that BOOTLICKER‘s been around. Since 2017, they’ve been lamenting the existence of the blind-with-fear masses by lashing our eardrums with their furious, fuzzed-out d-beat. And now, they’ve given something to celebrate with the release of their first full length LP that comes out on June 18th — you can pre-order it via Static Shock Records (EU) and Neon Taste Records (NA).
While I’m not at all one of those people who desperately wants everything back to “normal,” I do want to be back on the edge of a pit protecting my ear-muffed children from getting knocked out and risking my own braincells instead. I want my DIY venues and all-ages shows back. The rest of it I’m happy to overturn and burn. If you’re looking for an album that will light the rag in your bottle, this BOOTLICKER LP is it! Today I hope I inspire your inner dissident with our full stream of the new BOOTLICKER LP below:
Every copy of the LP comes with 16-page zine-style lyric insert full of illustrations by band member and visual artist Athena.
