Hm, I Wonder What Ramming Speed’s “Choke Holds and Bullet Holes” is About?
Were Ramming Speed always politically minded and I just never noticed? Regardless: it would seem that their new album, No Epitaph, is going to be fueled by the righteous rage of the disenfranchised. The album’s first single, “Don’t Let This Stay Here,” was inspired by Edward Snowden; now they’ve released “Choke Holds and Bullet Holes,” which is a pretty clear reference to the Trayvon Martins and Eric Garners of the world. Is there connection between the band’s sociopolitical indignation and the fact that these are the best songs they’ve written to date?
I’ll let you decide: check out “Choke Holds and Bullet Holes” below. Even if you don’t give a shit about all the other stuff, it’s a killer song that will make your neighbors hate you. Noice.
No Epitaph comes out September 4 on Prosthetic. Pre-order it here.
