Good old rock and roll is a lost art form. it seems that it came and went extremely fast, and with the ever expanding world of subgenres and niche music scenes, it never really feels like we’ll see a rock and roll revival. The same goes for punk music, especially because there are so many different variations of the classic genre that it would make it impossible to recreate its original 70s and 80s sound without sounding like a cheap rip off. However, Hot Coffin are taking classic sounds from both of these genres and fusing them together to create one awesome album of punk influence rock and roll. You can hear what I mean by checking out “The Bait”, the latest single, below!
It’s just fun music. It’s not the type of music you could really headbang to, but it’s definitely the kind of music you can jump around and have a goo time to. It’s got a punk vibe with the vocals, but an almost surf-rock vibe with the guitars that makes it sound like the band could have opened for Black Flag in the 80s and people would froth at the mouth over them. It’s got the best of both worlds without any of their common pitfalls. The song is just brief enough to keep you coming back and the rest of the album is the same way: it never overstays its welcome and always ends on a high note and will make you want to have a good time. Seriously, this whole record is a banger from start to finish, and you’d be a fool not to check it out. You can preorder it via their Bandcamp and follow the band on Facebook for more info!
