Hardcore punk band The Owen Guns dropped their last EP Violating Community Standards back in August last year and the controversial (albeit tongue in cheek) band caused quite a stir.
Now their second EP Electric Boogaloo is lining up for release the band are showcasing a preview of what’s to come with the single ‘Sick’ out via Riot Records as of 22nd February.
‘Sick’ is a punchy little number that’s apparently “dedicated to the morons who thought it was a good idea to stockpile toilet paper during a pandemic”. Co-written by Adam Check of Toe to Toe/One Dollar short it pulls no punches.
Based in New South Wale, Australia although they’re a relatively new band, The Owen Guns are made up of veterans of the live music scene, having paid their dues playing not only in Australian bands but also in the case of their vocalist and drummer in Canada and China respectively.
Forthcoming EP Electric Boogaloo was recorded and mixed by Geoff Mullard at RTN studios and mastered by Jason Fuller at Goatsound. The record features seven tracks ranging from furious to funny, blending old-school hardcore with sing along punk rock and adding a metal edge.
Full of blazing solos and group choruses – There’s never a lull from the onslaught of punk rock yet the band even have time to show their “sensitive” side with a faithful cover of The Hard-ons’ Aussie punk classic ‘Just Being With You’.
