Strung Out is one of those bands that either you "get" or you "don't". For most in the punk rock community, they swing towards the former. They're one of the first bands that I ever heard of that properly took all aspects of punk, metal and progressive and fused them into something that didn't sound like a bunch of distorted noise.
Songs of Armor and Devotion was created out an inherent need for Strung Out frontman Jason Cruz to reveal his fresh feelings on loss, the current state of America, and his continued drive to further his connection with fans through more dynamic, and evolved, songwriting. It’s a punk record, but it’s also much more than that. It’s a political record that addresses the state we’re in, but at its core maintains a belief that humanity overrides everything. It’s pain and sadness and hope and rebellion all wrapped into one powerful statement that also serves as a culmination of the band’s three decades together.
Songs Of Armor And Devotion was Produced by Cameron Webb (MOTÖRHEAD, MEGADETH) and will be in stores and online via Fat Wreck Chords everywhere Friday, August 9th. You can check out Strung Out's first single from the album "Daggers" which is streaming now on YouTube and Spotify in the links below.
