Nothing can represent a band better than their own words and we could not be more excited to be shouting those of The Restarts from the rooftops! Here’s what they have to say about their album...
“Dear World, After 14 months of writing, we were hugely excited to unleash our new 12 track album "Uprising" on Pirates Press Records. Our 6th studio album, but our first introducing the maniacal Jeremy bashing the skins, takes a no holds barred approach to punk rock. Drawing upon Robin's recent humanitarian work in Palestine we tackle hard issues like the global denial of apartheid and the plight of refugees in the Calais Jungle. Expect our usual brand of relentless thrash punk, ska anthems and back to basics old school punk. Warning: contains pointed political critiques on gentrification, mental health, origins of homophobia, addiction and the political circus that is Brexit! This is Restarts unapologetic and defiantly angry.
These guys put their money where their mouths are; Their time, toil and devotion to empowering and improving the lives of people, locally and globally - both as a band, and as individuals in the work they do outside of the band is not to be overlooked or under-appreciated. Not to mention, their tunes and energy on stage are absolutely INCREDIBLE. Pirates Press Records is truly honored to have them as part the Pirates Press Records family, and unbelievably excited to share this album with you.
