Music: Colt 45 are cocked and loaded
Gunning for glory: Colt 45
Cumbria-based melodic punk-rock trio Colt 45 have a new EP set for release in November.
Track: Colt 45 – Everybody Will Let You Down
File under: an even stronger proposition than the brand of malt liquor from which the band (possibly) take their name
Colt 45′s new EP, Inside The Triangle, was crafted with producer Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses, The Blackout, Twin Atlantic, Motorhead, Glassjaw, Manics…) at his Longwave Studios in Cardiff. It will be released on November 12 and focuses on good storytelling via melodic punk rock.
Commenting on Inside The Triangle’s content, drummer Adam Lewis says: “Lead track Happiness Is A Dying Art is a pop-tastic tale of lost friends, reminiscing, and self-analysis, but it’s impossible not to smile when you hear it! Our most immediate track on this EP, Everybody Will Let You Down, offers three minutes of fists-in-the-air punk rock, and a tasty breakdown for good measure. The slower I’m Drowning, Not Waving nods toward a more melodic side of our sound, and gives the harmonies room to shine. Final track Brick Wall is our ode to some favourite hard-rocking, big-riffing artists – Nirvana, Rise Against, Fugazi, Hot Water Music. You get the picture.”
We most certainly do, squire. Check out Everybody Will Let You Down below.
