If you’ve caught S.S. Vendetta live in recent months, their new song “Lonely Night” may sound a little familiar. The track and others slated for the band’s Transitions EP due out (tentatively) later this month have been in their on-stage rotation for a span. But it’s rather soothing to hear a more polished studio version not drowned in the clamor of music venues and cheap beer.
Guitarist and head banger Alex Foretich said the band has matured a bit beyond their third-wave ska roots, a progression captured, at least partly, in their newer music.
“We’re not your happy-go-lucky pirate band anymore,” Foretich said. “We come from different backgrounds — metal, indie, country, hip-hop — but we all mesh well writing together, and hopefully it shows.”
Transitions marks the third short release for the Dallas, Ga. based six-piece in a little less than two years. In the coming months, the crew plans to drop remastered versions of their earlier EPs as the We Don’t Look Good Naked: A Compilation full-length album. In the meantime, catch the gang live for an expanding track list. Their next show is Sat., Nov. 3, at Swayze's in Marietta.
Nashville has more dive bars than ATL now that sucks. tbh i think that new…
*Christ, Lord sorry
"Punk" style like this seems like it is the polar opposite of punk. Bradford Cox…
They're kind of starting to look like a joke of themselves. Song's good though.
