This morning I got a message in my inbox from a friend of mine. Mr. Boom Paige of the band Society Burning and in it he asked me if I could spread the news that Society Burning is giving away their latest record for free. No I get lots of messages like that so what’s different about this one? Well for one. Society Burning are one of the bands that really inspired me in my late teens and early 20′s (I can’t believe how old I am…). They write really good coldwave songs about the world we live in and the society we are in.
Back when I was just a youngster one of my favorite labels out there was ReConstriction Records. Chase at ReConstriction was the bomb. So much great music came out of there including the Operation Beatbox compilation that had coldwave/machine rock/industrial bands on it doing covers of hip hop songs. MTV even mentioned it playing a bit of Numb’s cover of Salt N Peppa’s Push It. If you haven’t heard Don Gordon’s version of it you should probably check it out cause it rules beyond all rules.
Any who, I got off point, so here’s the deal. I want you to go to Society Burning dot Com and get yourself a copy of the rekkit. Then head on over to their facebook page and like it. Tell them I sent you.
So lastly why am I supporting this record? Well the biggest reason is cause I’ve had it for awhile, I actually bought it the day it came out. Yes, despite the fact that I get tons of promos all the time I do buy music when I believe in it and I believe in Society Burning. So get yourself a copy today, absolutely free and tell Twitch, Boom and Daveoramma that you believe in them too.
