THIS MEANS WAR! laid out the groundwork for attacking a timeless rock-n-roll melody with the rawest of punk ingredients. This EP rose above the political nihilism and indifference plaguing too many bands, and unquestionably made a mark on the world of music. It reached back to the roots of that Strummer’esque spirit that has sustained punk and the spirit of traditional protest music for longer than that, establishing THIS MEANS WAR! as a powerful band with something to say. This five piece from the Lowlands in Belgium won’t let punk rock define or confine them, and are hell-bent on making their voices heard. Combining extremely well-written stuck-in-your-head riffs with extremely spirited, passionate and poignant sing-along lyrics is clearly what they excel at, and what will inevitably keep these records spinning for a long time to come. It’s powerful and inspiring, and hooky as can be - something a lot of people strive for, but so few achieve. So lace up those boots, put up that mohawk, or do whatever you do to prepare for the rage that comes from this EP.
