Has your Darkbuster reunion week hangover receded yet? The numerous shows at Great Scott, The Sinclair, and numerous other Northeast locales that bookended the first week of August were sweetened by the release of No Revolution, the Boston punk/ska band’s first album since 2005’s A Weakness For Spirits. For anyone who was unable to make it to those shows and/or was unwilling to buy the album since, Pirates Press Records has graciously put the entire new album on Youtube to stream (cue impromptu think-piece about how things like the Bandcamp model of music distribution have made it so that most purchased music has already been experienced in full beforehand).
Listen to the album below, which shows a much more mature Darkbuster influenced heavily by Lenny Lashley’s work as a solo artist while also retaining the energy of the band’s earlier material. No Revolution was released on August 7th on CD and digital download, and a vinyl release is planned for September 4th. If you like what you hear, support this local band by heading over to Pirates Press’ website to purchase the album as a CD or vinyl preorder, or iTunes as a digital download.
