Serving up rock n' roll realism that weaves together stories of the downtrodden and the oppressed, but never loses its sense of hope. The album is raw and gritty, rolling with thunderous drumming and delectably grimy guitars. If there is a through line of anthemic rock, it's because the record was crafted from drummer Mad Dog's basement - just three guys, some amps and ideas. 'The best thing about this record is just the raw energy and the basic facts,' Stokes says. 'We recorded it to tape with these old amps from the 70s and these big drum sounds in a warehouse.'
