Doc Rotten - Sick and Suffering ALBUM REVIEW
Wes - Guitar/Vocals Mike - Bass/Vocals AJ - Drums Andy Kay - Guitar
New Jersey boys Doc Rotten are nothing short of a good ole' fashioned punk rock band and after a first verse listen, your punk rock lizard brain wants to slam dance or break shit. For me, it could be that they remind me of bands like Rancid, Social D or Dropkick Murphys (minus the bagpipes and banjos) with a songs like (Listen Up and Gates via sophomore EP SICK AND SUFFERING) with fast paced "stop break" dirty chord progression build ups, gang vocal harmonies, strumming bass guitar melodies and snare roll drum fills.
SICK AND SUFFERING, the sophomore follow-up to Doc Rotten's freshman 2017 freshman EP FALLOUT which comes out everywhere on March 29th, 2018. The new album was produced by Sean Glonek. The quartet have been together for just only a year and have managed to already release 2 EPs, tour, and score a handful of music videos like this newly released first single video for LISTEN UP off of the new album.
