Punk has never been a stranger to tackling controversial issues. On the contrary. For more than 40 years, Punk has shown time and time again to be a LOUD voice of reason and unity in a chaotic, irrational and often devastating reality. True to their Punk roots, NOi!SE tackles these issues head on, and more specifically here with the issue of gun violence and school shootings, in a very powerful, non-political way. “Mass Apathy” (previously unreleased) is brutal, and the intentional vocal silence between verses is deafening; a symbol of lives [children] lost. The words themselves and the vocal contribution from Skinhead Rob (TRANSPLANTS/RANCID) really bring it over the top.
