San Francisco Punks Western Addiction Premier new Material

San Francisco punk rockers Western Addiction have released a brand new three song 7-inch, on Fat Wreck Chords filled with aggressive chords and authoritative lyrics.

The band’s first release since 2015, I’m Not the Man That I Thought I’d Be, features two equally brand new singles, “Cold-Hearted Maceration,” and “Clatter and Hiss.”

“Clatter and Hiss” is a demo of a song that will appear on their forthcoming album. The track also marks the first appearance of bassist Tony Teixeira.

The title song originally appeared on the band’s limited edition 10-inch at FEST in 2014. The band teamed up with Revolver to premiere the track last November. Vocalist Jason Hall told the magazine that he was initially nervous to share the title track with the band.

“It’s very ‘rock’ and we are definitely not a ‘rock’ band. It’s a duet, which is somewhat odd for our style of band but I’ve had this vision for how the song should sound for quite some time and I really wanted a female vocalist to record with us,” explained Hall. “Our friend Dara from Serpent Crown sang the second verse. She’s a metal vocalist so it made it even cooler.”

According to the interview, the song is about how life never really turns out how you imagined, for both men and women, and sometimes you just feel ‘average’ despite your best efforts.

Western Addiction“It’s like saying you are going to do something tomorrow, but you just never do it and one day you are too old and your window has passed. Sorry, that’s depressing, but the rock will make you feel good,” Hall said.

Western Addiction will kick off their European tour with Lagwagon and The Flatliners next week. They will also be playing a show with OFF! and punk Gods Bad Religion in April.
