Western Addiction – Tremulous

Sunday 09th, April 2017 / 14:00

Fat Wreck Chords

For fans of San Francisco based hardcore band, Western Addiction, it is time to rejoice! The band has finally released their very long-awaited follow-up record, entitled Tremulous.

Released 12 years after their debut album, Cognicide, Tremulous was worth the wait. To produce this record, many of the band’s founding members were called upon, which rooted Tremulous with the same aggressive feeling as their past recordings. The difference from past releases is the distinctive melodic sound, which gives the album a twist that both fans and first-time listeners will appreciate.

Tremulous is a dark and heavy album featuring deep, brooding lyrics, but unlike most hardcore releases, Tremulous features frontman Jason Hall’s finest attempt at singing. Not the hoarse, scathing vocals normally heard in the genre. Songs like, “Righteous Lightning,” will have you chanting along, while “Honeycreeper,” will have you yearning for a circle pit. Although the overall feel of Tremulous is dark, the rhythm has its highs and lows; upbeat and melodic to a steady downtempo.

The guys in Western Addiction haven’t lost their edge in the decade that’s passed, they’ve fine-tuned their sound and perfected their style to produce a record worthy of waiting 12 years for and absolutely one to be proud of.
