"The best beach punk band in the entire Midwest just dropped a killer of an ep. Perfect catchy mean punk that falls somewhere between early 2000s Danish punk & Rik L Rik." - Eric Montanez
Screen printed covers.
Our take: More killer 80s-style hardcore punk from Pittsburgh. While Loose Nukes are more raging and Drug Lust are a little heavier, Detainees work the catchier end of the 80s punk angle. The five songs here bop along at a pace that’s sprightly but not harried, the riffs have a classic 80s punk feel, and the vocals are raw but melodic, often following the same melody as the guitar riffs. It reminds me of the catchier bands of the early to mid 00s hardcore scene: Regulations, Social Circkle, Acid Reflux, etc. 5 songs with the no-bullshit presentation you expect from this style.
