The Blood Brothers - Ambulance Vs Ambulance (Artists Direct)
UK release date: 24 February 2003
Not a band to listen to if you're feeling at all fragile, the new future of punk rock release this typically abrasive slice of hardcore from their forthcoming album Burn Piano Island Burn.
This five piece from Seattle are a million miles removed from the 'corporate punk' of Blink 182 and Sum 41, and Ambulance vs Ambulance is a perfect example of what they're all about. Two vocalists scream lyrics at each other, over a backing of crunchy guitars and elastic bass.
The effect, while exhausting, is awesome and hoards of disaffected teenagers may well soon be discovering a new soundtrack to their lives.
