DISCOS MACHETE / REBEL TIME RECORDS
It’s only been six months since Canada’s The Fallout released the impressive “The Times Have Never Changed” album but now they’re back with the “Casualty” EP, that, as with their previous releases, is available as a ‘name your price’ download via Canada’s Rebel Time Records and Mexico’s Discos Machete imprint. If you’re not familiar with The Fallout then try and imagine something that’s manning the barricades on the edge of the same territory occupied by Anti-Flag and D.O.A., this is political punk rock with it’s roots deep in the scene, but this is not a band looking back, this is the sound of a band facing the future and tackling it head on.
What you get on the “Casualty” EP is four tracks that are delivered in around eight minutes, the EP’s title track launches you straight into a manic and timely blast of energy, the second wave of “Miracles For Sale” takes on religion and challenges blind faith with a blast of straight up old school punk rock. The throttle is twisted and we get back up to speed with a hit of melodic punk rock that raises a middle finger at religion and politics, that is appropriately titled ‘Same Old Shit‘. The “Casualty” EP bows out with ‘Warpath‘ another barbed slice of stripped down straight up political punk rock.
The Fallout are a band that keep the flag burning in the tradition of the best political punk bands, the energy on display backs up the political conviction, and make no mistake, both are equally important elements of The Fallout. “Casualty” combines a die hard D.I.Y. attitude & a genuine conviction, this is all delivered with a generous punk heart, you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by checking this out. If you love your punk with a direct, coherent and energetic message then this is for you. The Fallout are a band who do what they do purely because it’s what they love and to say what needs to be said.

THE FALLOUT zeigen sich weiterhin kämpferisch und solidarisieren sich u.a. mit dem Song “Warpath” für “women’s marches against gender violence and femicide and for legal abortion”. Dabei ist der Sound weniger hasserfüllt und hyper-aggro, denn mehr geprägt von 77erPunk und einem deutlichen Swingin’ Utters-Einschlag, etwa im Song “Miracles for sale”. Des Weiteren haben sie auch den schnellen Melody Punk im Gepäck und einen wahrlich tollen Gitarrenlauf, der der das Blut so dick wie Öl gefrieren lässt. 4 ganz tolle Songs und sehr gute links-politische Inhalte, die die Faust aus der Tasche holen und dabei wilde Pogohüpfer verursachen.
