"Victory Lap (Deluxe Edition)" by Propagandhi on iTunes

15 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

On their first album in five years, Canadian punk stalwarts Propagandhi light a political firestorm with ferocious guitars and poignant lyrics about the rise of fascism. Railing against police brutality, societal apathy, and government control on songs like “Cop Just Out of Frame,” “Comply / Resist,” and “Adventures in Zoochosis,” frontman Chris Hannah leads the combustible charge, while new guitarist Sulynn Hago brings a fluid, angular touch to the band’s signature slash-and-burn style.

Yes !!!

Imsofreakinsexy666,

Julie's hit the head on the nail !!

Sounds like it's gonna be brutal!

He who poops by the river,

Judging by the quality of the musical content of the first single, (Victory Lap) along with the history of progression with each Propagandhi album, I can easily say that this album has the potential to be absolutely killer! From what I had last heard, The Beave had to leave the group and they got a new guitarist so I'm hoping any and all difference in their sound as a result of that change will be strictly positive... although The Beave was such an awesome inclusion to Propagandhi that I can't say that I'm not a little nervous about the switch. Fortunately, I trust Chris and the rest of the band to not allow themselves to get watered-down or to put out any filler material.
If you've never gotten into Propagandhi before and you're curious about making a purchase, please do yourself a favor and check them out... like now! I've always said their music was a 50/50 mix of thrash metal and punk rock and I think that's a fair summarizing of what they are. So think along the lines of Slayer meets Pennywise and you've got a good idea of that golden Propagandhi sound! Their album "Supporting Caste" is absolutely nothing short of perfect and has exactly what todays music is missing... Integrity and some f**king Balls!!!

About Propagandhi

As one of Fat Wreck Chords' very first bands, Propagandhi have long been going against the grain of not just society, but even their own record label. Initiated by Chris Hannah and Jordy Samolesky, the band of radicals from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, got together in 1989 and eventually played a show with NOFX. After talking with Fat Mike and realizing they shared the same D.I.Y. attitude, Propagandhi agreed to join his fledgling label. Ideally, the band would have loved to skirt the entire capitalist process of selling and marketing music, but made compromises in order to get its pro-gay, pro-feminist, pro-civil liberties, anti-fascism message out. Screeching over fast, catchy punk music, the group moved easily from humorous to profound to blunt with song titles like "I Was a Pre-Teen McCarthyist," "Hate, Myth, Muscle, Etiquette," and "Stick the Fucking Flag Up Your Goddam Ass, You Sonofabitch."

That style took a dramatic turn in 1997 when singer, songwriter, and bassist John K. Samson left to write, start a publishing company, and eventually form the Weakerthans. The remaining members of Propagandhi started their own label, G7 Welcoming Committee, which released several Weakerthans records and Propagandhi's 2001 effort, Today's Empire, Tomorrow's Ashes, in Canada. Their last for Fat Wreck Chords, Potemkin City Limits, appeared in 2005, featuring Glen Lambert as an apparent replacement for Chris Hannah -- although it soon became clear that Hannah had not left the band, and had instead been using the "Glen Lambert" moniker as a pseudonym. Propagandhi became a four-piece in 2006 when guitarist David Guillas joined up, touring with the band before making his album debut on 2009's Supporting Caste. The group followed up three years later with Failed States, which was released by Epitaph in 2012. In May 2017, Propagandhi announced via social media that they had finished recording their seventh studio long-player. The resulting Victory Lap was released via Epitaph later that September. ~ Ron DePasquale
