Obliterations is a band of dudes in other bands—a couple of them of the stoner/metal variety, including Black Mountain and Saviours. And those dudes possess a collective affinity for an 80s west-coast brand of pissed-off hardcore punk that warranted a side project of sorts. So they made the very calculated move to play exactly that and not bother with the frills. Can't blame 'em. The LA-based foursome currently has a pair of EPs on its Bandcamp
, but I just got word via PR e-mail that the tracking for their Southern Lord debut—due out sometime this fall—is all wrapped, and in three days no less. In celebration, today's 12 O'Clock Track
, "Sick Feeling," is taken from the most recent Obliterations EP, The Hole
. And it's hot.
