Listen: The Obsessed Crush Punks with “Punk Crusher”
The Obsessed must have arranged today’s Invisible Oranges premiere of their new song, “Punk Crusher,” days ago, if not weeks ago. But talk about kismet: just this morning, a human hemorrhoid who has become inexplicably popular in the metal scene declared himself to be as “fucking punk rock,” which has about as much basis in reality as if Bobby Liebling declared himself to be “the next Ryan Gosling.”
Point being, the timing here is perfect. Every time I think about Labonte’s claim, my soul vomits, but now there’s this rad proto-metal stoner jam with people yelling “PUNK CRUSHER!”, and it’s making me feel much less nauseous. It’s like musical Dramamine!
Check out “Punk Crusher” below. The song will appear on The Obsessed first new album in more than twenty years, Sacred, which will will be released April 7 on Relapse. Check out another new song here, then pre-order the album here (digital) or here (physical)!
