Echo Park based street punks Societys Parasites will release a tumultuous new album, 1753, on October 26 via Hellcat Records.
A follow-up to the group's 2007 debut self-titled album, 1753 is a gritty, teeth-gnashing punk record featuring 24 malicious, pissed-off tracks about life and death in LA that clock in at a little over 23 minutes. The band charge the pit fist first with infectious aggression on songs like "Tiempos Dificiles" (listen now at www.myspace.com/societysparasites), a break-neck punk thrasher "Life and Death" and "Politicos," which was written by Jimmy (drums) and Freddy's (Guitar/Vocals) father about the El Salvadorian Civil War that landed him in the US. Family and community play a big role in the group's sophomore album, half of which was recorded with Spanish vocals as a tribute to their Latino brethren who grew up with English as their second language like the band itself.
From Echo Park to the Bay Area and beyond Societys Parasites continue to seed the underground with face-melting punk rock in its most authentic form.
