Nach dem 4-Song Demo Tape wurde es coronabedingt etwas ruhiger. Nun sind die 11 Songs endlich auf dem Weg. Drei Lieder vom Tape wurden neu aufgemischt. Catchy Post-Punk, verspielte Melodien, dann wieder straight Punk-Rock. Das Trio aus Bielefeld liefert im abwechselnden Mann-Frau-Gesang dein neues Lieblingsalbum ab. Die LP kommt übrigens im schönen Inside-Out Cover, mit dickem Lyric-Inlay und Download-Code.

Maybe you’re already familiar with the Bielefeld conspiracy, which posits that the German town and its inhabitants don’t actually exist. Like most conspiracy theories, it’s utterly batshit – but if you can sufficiently warp your own sense of logic, you might just find yourself believing it. Which brings us on to thoroughly excellent punk band Dead Years – the fact that they profess to being from Bielefeld might not be the irrefutable proof required to debunk the theory, but it’s certainly enough reason for you to want to move there and live in their shadow for the rest of yr life.

Dead Years emerged fully formed in 2020, courtesy of an excellent four-song demo that opened with a notably mighty cut called ‘Cloaks’ and only got better from there. Three of those four songs return on this, their self-titled debut album – amped up and sounding better than ever. This is a record that hijacks the raw-throated immediacy of 00s punk faves like Fifth Hour Hero and Young Livers and laces it with a dark angularity that feels like a thoroughly modern take on post-punk – Iceage, Protomartyr, Facs, you know the drill.
