OFF! Song Premiere - Void You Out

OFF! Song Premiere - Void You Out

OFF! are getting faster, harder, fiercer and scarier. It's not surprising, considering their pedigree; the punk supergroup is comprised of Dimitri Coats of Burning Brides, Steven Shane McDonald of Redd Kross, Mario Rubalcaba of Earthless and none other than Keith Morris, founding vocalist for the great Black Flag.

On OFF!'s first two albums, they bashed out three-chord songs anchored in Morris' deliciously manic delivery. Now, they have released "Void You Out," the first single from their upcoming third album, Wasted Years – and it finds the band adopting that same formula with a meaner, nastier bite.

An atonal screech opens the track before Coats drops down, slamming out a brutish riff. Morris jumps in, alternates between ranting and screaming with a cadence not dissimilar to Charles Manson's. During its 70-second running time, the song grows more unhinged as Coats slips in a nine-second solo and Morris attacks cultural superiority.

The song pulls its anger from misleading historical revisionism, as Morris tells Rolling Stone. "Who was here first? A bunch of uptight, always-right Caucasians with their heads buried up each other's asses, trying to tell the rest of us how North American history went down and is going to be changed because of their intelligence or lack thereof. Thus: 'Void You Out!'"

Wasted Years is out April 8th on Vice Records. (via)
