London-based, Victorian-themed punks, The Men Who Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing have announced the details for their new album Double Negative. The record, featuring 9 tracks of aggressive hardcore-punk is set for release on the 9th March 2018 through the bands own Leather Apron label.

Speaking on the record, bassist Marc Burrows said “We wanted to create a short, angry album that emphasised our punk side and pushed our sound forward. We’re pretty bloody happy with how it turned out. It’s dark, savage, brutal and holds up the rotten corpse of Britain’s past as a mirror to the sorry state of the present…and then rubs yer face in it so you won’t do it again. The humour is still there, but it’s dark and twisted- there’s very little of the Music Hall influence we’ve touched on before. This is the first of a pair of albums, the next one will be expansive and elaborate, where this one is intentionally taut and abrasive.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
