Canadian “progressive thrash” legends Propagandhi join the Epitaph roster with their new album Failed States, just in time for their politically engaged anthems to form a soundtrack to that magical theatrical production known as the US elections. Failed States is the band’s sixth album, and their second as a fourpiece with the addition of Dave “The Beaver” Guillas on guitar. This has lead to a distinctive thickening and fortifying of the band’s sound, to the point where they now achieve maximum heaviness, in a good way. This is most definitely the best Propagandhi album yet, full of loud, fast, indignant songs that stick in your head.
Propagandhi will once again tour their asses off in support of their new album.
Propagandhi reveres a bunch of legendary punk and metal bands, including Voivod, Rush, NoMeansNo, SNFU, Sacrifice, Razor, and Guilt Parade.
