POLITICAL PUNK TRIO WAKRAT COINCIDE RELEASE WITH US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
We all like a bit of a good gimmick don’t we. The US presidential election should provide a great promotional platform for any band with a political message – right? This election is a biggie; we’re all sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to see which of the two controversial candidates our Amercian friends will choose to occupy the most powerful political seat in, well, the world!
It seems that it’s ‘two French nationals and one American anarchist’ – namely Wakrat on Earache Records – who have seized the opportunity and have made their self-titled album, featuring ‘songs fuelled by political dissent, social commentary and an undiminished subversion and questioning of authority’ available today to chime with events via iTunes.
This should come as no surprise maybe since July 2016 saw the band claim London’s Parliament Square as their own independent sovereign state in an audacious protest against the political elite. The process was documented for their ‘Generation Fucked’ music video, which you can watch below.
The album is due to be released on physical formats this Friday, November 11th, including ultra-limited edition signed stencil vinyl, coloured vinyl, CD and merch bundles. Reserve your copy at this location.
Apparently, everyone is invited to become a citizen of the Republic of Wakrat for free right here.
