Broken Prayer: S/T 12"

Sorry State Records


The brainchild of Scott Plant, formerly the vocalist for Civic Progress, Chicago's Broken Prayer are precisely what hardcore punk should be in the year 2012: aggressive, energetic, intelligent, sarcastic, and adventurous. In a scene where entire subgenres have been spawned from the influence of one band (if not one record), Broken Prayer's willingness to try anything--from stinging, straightforward hardcore to song-oriented post-punk to spastic, Screamers-inspired synth blasts--is a breath of fresh air. If all of the new school soundalike bands just aren't giving you that adrenalin rush, then this LP may restore your faith in punk.
