Western Addiction


Fat Wreck Chords 698

Released on November 1, 2005


Since the release of their first 7” on FAT late in 2003, and the success of their split EP with New Mexican Disaster Squad on No Idea Records in 2004, WESTERN ADDICTION have been hard at work penning the twelve songs that make their first full length, Cognicide. We were lucky enough to have first shot at releasing the album, as all of the members work here at FAT! One of San Francisco’s few old-style hardcore bands, WESTERN ADDICTION give a nod to the days of yore, when punk and hardcore were one cohesive scene, while exploring a sound that is truly all their own. Aggressive and in your face, WESTERN ADDICTION’S bass-line-heavy sound is topped off with metaphoric lyrical content, screamed at brink of vocal chord destruction!

KICK IN THE FACE .... in a good way. This cd is just down right amazing, I cant even describe it properly, its just good old HARDCORE PUNK and rarely leaves my CD player.

.....This is a church where Black Flag resides......

Wow! These guys had a pretty good showing with their split with New Mexican Disaster Squad, but this really takes it all to a new level. A blast from the Punk/Hardcore past, way back to the days before karate moves left the dojo and hit the pit, and long before any bands knew the couter person at the revlon booth at the mall. Intense from beginning to end, not one song that I skip while listening. And the running time comes in right around 1/2 hour...perfect!

Awesome, just awesome. It's refreshing to hear a new release by a hardcore/punk band in these times of lousy, cliche emo domination.

It's been a while since I've heard anything mind-blowing so I tend to buy a lot of random cds in hopes of finding my next personal big thing. This is not it. This cd delivers what it promises. A good blend of hardcore and punk. Just dont expect much more than that. While its worth a listen its definitely nothing you havent heard from a thousand other bands. All in all an ok cd.

Awwww, Its so refreshing to hear a band that does this well, even though Interpunk is taking fucking forever to get it to me, luckily my buddy at the cd store let me borrow a promo untill it comes. Its the perfect blend of Hardcore and Punk Rock, I'd say A little harder than Good Riddance and Strike Anywhere, but not quite as hard as Agnostic Front but right inbetween those bands. I highly suggest this if your a fan of those bands or heavier fast punk rock with a hardcore feel.
