Public Safety just dropped their new, self-titled album today. Here’s “Market Rate,” a little slice of the hardcore masterpiece you’re about to witness.

“The mission of this band has always been to build community as a starting point for more militant organization,” says vocalist Stumpy. “We’ve been working for years to build that in the East Bay and have a space for the politics that can fight the rise of fascism here. We’re excited to finally have something to share worldwide to that end.”

The band’s debut EP Public Safety delivers six tracks of blazing, old-school hardcore with sharp, political lyrics that merge the classic and new wave of hardcore sound. The listener is treated to punk at full blast the whole way through, with a break during “Land a Blow (Internationalism Pt.1),” where a spoken-word piece is read over a breakdown, bringing the listener back to the heyday of the anarcho scene.
