If you take your punk rock hard, fast, and frosted, take a bite out of the title single to the Baltimore-based outfit, Crimson Catastrophe’s latest album, Pocket Doughnut. Punk has always been about non-conformist defiance, which is exactly why Crimson Catastrophe went against the over-politicised punk grain with ‘Pocket Doughnut’.
Political punk will always have its place, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t plenty of room on the airwaves for bands frenetically squeezing the joy of life’s simple pleasures. Pocket Doughnut is absolutely ridiculous, yet you can’t help getting swept up in the frenetic scuzzed-up sugar rush. We can’t wait for our next fix.
Pocket Doughnut is now available to stream in full on Spotify.
