Last we heard from Death By Steamship, it was their debut LP S.S. Endurance from last summer. Now the grungy Seattle punks have a new 7″ to offer titled Facetious on Whoa! Boat Records.
The single comes three tracks deep, with each showing off a bold and aggressive punk edge that varies from track to track. On the A-side, “Smoke and Sweat” joins an unpredictable combination of punk rock with a danceable drum beat, filled out with throbbing bass lines and jagged guitars all in efforts to silence the stereo. “Dirty Venetian Blinds” follows behind with its chunky bass lines, boasting a rowdy attitude that explodes in your face with stomping percussion and cutting guitar leads. Last but not least, the curiously titled “You Need a Super, Special, Specialized, Specialist” brings more discontented punk rage to the table. The song is driven by pulsing bass lines while the metallic jangle of the guitar continues to push forward, making for an awesome balance between clangorous noise and grungy punk.
The single comes limited to just 300 with the first 100 coming on blue vinyl. Go and snag one while they’re still available!
