Review/Stream: DRUG/Joyboy Split


Fans of post-punk would be remiss not to check out this awesome new release from Florida band DRUG and Joyboy hailing from Birmingham. DRUG returns with 2 songs that bring to mind bands such as Creative Adult and Murder City Devils, while simultaneously delving deeper into their own unique sound. On the other side of the split, Joyboy have added a psychedelic element to their already excellent screamo sound that finds itself an excellent fit with DRUG's side of the split. Overall, this is an excellent release that anyone who is a fan of forward thinking punk music should give a listen. You can stream both band's sides of the split below and also find a link to purchase the split on CD or Tape via Crass Lips Records.
