Celebration Summer - "Fraud"

Celebration Summer, your new favorite D.C. area politically charged punk band, just released a new single. If you have an affection for D.C. area punk, you kind of already know what to expect from "Fraud." It's a song that takes aim at NRA, Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell, etc. As angry as it is, the song is kind of fun in that way the best angry punk is. It's fast and political with great shout a long gang choruses, but it's oddly melodic at the same time. To keep the classic D.C. punk theme going, "Fraud" sounds like if Rites of Spring attempted to write a straightforward hit for the modern rock charts.

You can watch the video for "Fraud" below. Patience in Presence will be out on A-F Records in the US and Shield Recordings in Europe in late September. The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on Celebration Summer, check out the band's Facebook and Bandcamp.
