Chicago’s Melodic Punk outfit Counterpunch have announced details for their next album Rewire, set for release on June 17th, 2022, via Thousand Islands Records/SBÄM Records. The title track has also been released.
The band says of the song:
Rewire’ tackles the double standard people of faith create by showing face in a place of worship once a week and then acting like a piece of human garbage elsewhere. They scream outrage over everything they don’t agree with as ‘against God’s way’ while ignoring the teachings of their faith. Every religion at its core is about loving your fellow man and reverence toward whatever ‘god’ you happen to believe in. Whether they choose to follow through on what they are taught, however, is another story.
In 2019, the band stepped into Black in Bluhm studios in Denver to record their 4th LP just before COVID shut down the world. In light of facing a new normal the band hit the pause button on releasing their latest full length effort, deciding instead to put out a 7″ record with a few of the B Side tracks from the Black in Bluhm sessions titled Handbook for the Recently Debriefed, teaming up with Thousand Island Records and SBAM Records. Their newest LP was produced by Chris Fogal and the band itself.
