Thanks Razorcake for the great review of GREAT AGAIN:

"This is the kind of punk we need right now."

"Blowback might be a hardcore band, but it is not one content on just nailing a song down at breakneck speed. The songs are structured with a variety of speeds, twists, and turns. This highlights a Dead Kennedys style of attack, although the title track kick starts with an early G.B.H. guitar and bass drive..."

"Anything that is anti-Trump is fine by me and more so when it's this good"

BLOWBACK just finished tracking new songs in upstate New York at Don Fury Studios. Things are sounding good, we had a great time working with Fury and have 5 new songs in the can. We're figuring out what exactly to do with them, but a release of some sort is on the way. More to come!

Protest Million Mask March
Protesters beware!

Corporations are increasingly getting monetary judgements from individuals, even for non-violent civil disobedience. Your democratic rights are under attack.

ABA Journal: Protesters may pay the price when civil disobedience becomes costly

(Not to mention how Chevron has cited damages from organizations like Amazon Watch and a documentary filmmaker.)

12/13/14: Bark like a dog

Posted by: BLOWBACK
This newly released report details CIA torture tactics that are now public. It's horrible.

A new report describes detainees chained to the floor and left without water or food for 24 hours or more who had urinated or defecated on themselves. Tactics included sleep deprivation, forced shaving, "Invasion of Space by a Female", and forcing a detainee to bark like a dog.

Other incidents include mock executions, revving a power drill while a detainee stood naked and hooded and forcing detainees to inhale smoke until they vomited.

The land of the free is a torture machine. For your listening reference, see the song SMF.

Be on the lookout for an upcoming report on CIA torture tactics in the wake of 9/11.

New York Times: Stop the CIA Spin on the Senate Torture Report

"ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Senate Intelligence Committee will soon release key sections of its report on the Central Intelligence Agency’s detention and interrogation of terrorism suspects after 9/11. In remarks on Friday anticipating the report’s release, which he has publicly supported, President Obama acknowledged that “we tortured some folks.”"

Here's a video that summarizes the importance of disclosing what's been done:

Take a look and let us know what you think.

Razorcake Review of BLOWBACK Greed Runs the Clock
Thanks Razorcake for the great review of Greed Runs The Clock:

"Well-executed punk/hardcore that bounces from one tempo to the next and to the next in complex shifts while a singer makes astute observations about the state of American culture....Varied enough over four tracks to sound fresh throughout, with quite a scratchy guitar sound that provides edginess to the proceedings. 'Cassandra’s Lament' is the standout track with spoken word elements that are like a less manic Jello Biafra.... Kudos and backslaps all ‘round; good, good stuff."
