Hard Left ready debut album

We Are Hard Left is the debut album from Hard Left that will be released on May 4 via Future Perfect Records. Brought together by the music, held together by the outrage — Hard Left are a hard-mod/punk band whose members have been involved with punk and DIY music for nearly a century combined (including time in bands like Boyracer, Jüke, Whorl, Lunchbox and Black Tambourine, and operating the respected labels 555, Emotional Response and Slumberland Records).  The band has unveiled two new songs from their upcoming LP…
Listen/Post: “Holiday”
Listen/Post: “Hard Left Rules OK”
These are crucial times that we live in, and Hard Left seek to inspire and invigorate.  From the super-tough “Kicking If Off” to the Occupy-inspired “Red Flag” and the supremely uplifting (and also Situationist-inspired) closer “Imagination,” this is a record that hits hard, crammed with guitars that soar and rage, group chants and raw-throated vocals. It’s anthemic in the best way — inspiring but never heavy-handed, a worthy successor to records by bands like The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Sex Pistols and The Dils.  Call it “utopian Oi” if you will, or “hard mod” or just plain punk, but don’t miss out on this passionate, thrilling record.  The band has a handful of release shows set up to celebrate the release of We Are Hard Left….
