Killer of Sheep’s latest release, Scorned, is a blistering hardcore-punk album of bitter protest. The band takes down capitalism (“You’re a Customer”); white supremacy and police brutality (“Use of Force,” “Jordan Miles/Gasolina,” “... The Kettle Black”); corporate destruction of the environment (“FIREWATER”); state surveillance (“Thought Police”); and mindless consumption (“Tumors”).

In the horrifying world we live in, sometimes just turning on the news is all it takes to feel despair and frustration. On Scorned, Killer of Sheep takes sound clips from news reports and interviews and uses them to drive home each song’s message. This intensifies already genuine songs by adding the actual sounds of suffering in America. 

Scorned is a timely record, a soundtrack for a world of turmoil and frustration, a cathartic jaunt to shake the frustration from your bones and face the world ready to fight. 

For Fans Of: civil disobedience, Iron Reagan, community justice
