It's time for more homegrown punk. Chester/Wrexham band Black Years to be exact! This 7" was released in October via Footloose Records, whose releases I featured quite a bit last year. They've already released one EP that seemed to go under the radar and they've also played shows alongside the mighty Bastions and '68 (the band that features ex-members of The Chariot and Norma Jean.). Oh and they've played Rhyl and made it out alive!
1. Bourbon Legend
It’s quite apt that Black Years shared the stage with ex-members of The Chariot, as their brand of punk sits pretty well alongside said band. Bourbon Legend features hardcore inspired screams, gruff singing and danceable riffs. They are equal parts modern punk and snotty attitude. There’s no pop-punk cleanliness and Black Years are very adept musicians, as proven on Lovers, which features a classy solo and a great sing-along vibe.
