On the new four-song EP, "Superior," Self Defense Family presents some of its darkest material to date. Themed around the movement to make the Upper Peninsula the 51st state, this is cold winds over permafrost. This is Christian Death meets Death In June meets Death meets actual loss of life. It's Killing Joke in their Iceland apocalypse phase. If you could mainline "bummer," this would be it. Captured by Taylor Young at The Pit for maximum gloom. 12"ep includes digital download and an etched B-side.
