The Skinny: Great Lakes USA’s new full-length record, Live Fast, Die Whenever, is out today via Black Numbers. The album is streaming in its entirety and can be embedded on your website via SoundCloud – LISTEN BELOW! The album can be ordered via Black Numbers’ webstore.

Live Fast, Die Whenever is a crucial listen for fans of Strike Anywhere, Dillinger Four, The Loved Ones or No Trigger. Fast-paced, no-frills punk-rock is the name of the game for Great Lakes USA, but the record is masterfully produced and features an accessibility that makes the songs easy to listen to. Guitar riffs and solos are aplenty with back-breaking work from the rhythm section, as has been displayed by the first few songs released from the album.
