Premiere: Freedom Fist ‘INDYREF2’ – Debut Self-Titled Album Releases 14th October
For those who are sick of the governing bodies who are destroying, not only the country you reside in, but also the world around us, with their lust for power and greed, then Freedom Fist is the band for you as these ferocious, and proudly Scottish, hardcore punks are angry at the vile creatures (Tories!) who rule their beloved Scotland from the cesspit that is Westminster.
Their debut Self-Titled album features a staggering nineteen tracks of blistering hardcore punk and power violence which draws as much inspiration from the chaotic punk of The Exploited, the anarcho crusty d-beat of Discharge and Doom, as it does from the West Coast power violence of Man Is The Bastard and Spazz. And to give you an idea of the lyrical content, a simple quote from the band perfectly sums up their mindset, ‘We are Scotland The Brave, not Scotland The Slave’.
Set to be released on the 14th October through Roman Numeral Records, today, The Shaman shows solidarity with our Scottish brethren and their call for independence with the aptly named track INDYREF2…
More On Freedom Fist & Self-Titled
There’s nothing punk about simply taking to social media to voice your anger and concerns about the systems that are failing you. There’s nothing punk about simply writing songs for profit that latch onto people’s fears and distrust of the government and those who wish to stifle our voices. Freedom Fist exists to provide a soundtrack to any voice that needs heard, and to mobilise those in the band’s home nation of Scotland towards the necessary separation from the Union, Westminster, and the fucking Crown.
Pissed off, pissed up, and vehement, Freedom Fist aims the aforementioned piss at those who continue to allow these fascists-in-the-making into powerful positions, the inbred Germanics who occupy Buckingham Palace, and the slick, serpentine cunts who have forcibly tried to stifle Scotland’s push for independence. It’s not all bagpipes, tartan and pride however. The heroin epidemic, culture of violence, and sectarian servitude of the Glasgow football rivalry all have sharp stabs taken towards them. Scotland isn’t a blissful utopian paradise, but it can be. Not just for the Scottish, but for any and all who wish to make Alba their home in a post Union world.
Short, fast, abrasive tracks that embody the attitude and aggression of those who want a prosperous, autonomous Scotland. Hostility designed to rile support from those who might still sit on the fence. Mini anthems for a small nation that has and always will be a global hotspot of art, culture, and humanitarian ventures. Fuckin’ catchy stuff too. D-beats, blasts, wretched and tormented vocals, scummy guitars and blown out bass.
