¡Forward, Russia!: Album Hits The States



Northern England's ¡Forward, Russia! have been throwing everyone for a loop that past couple of years. During an age where everyone has been repping Wire and The Fall, but this four-piece comes off as a 21st century update of Fugazi -- the band is urgent and their guitars wail out of control. Their live shows are best described as intense, with the band translating their numerically-named songs in fevered fashion. I first wrote about the band last year and my opinion hasn't changed much since then.

Their debut Give Me A Wall drops in States via Mute Records on Sept. 19th.

Those t-shirts make the band look like cast-outs for a Wham! video shoot. What year is this?

It's not like the shirts say "Choose Life". Ah George Michael, I heart you.
