'NEW' FM359 "Truth, Love, and Liberty" CD
by FM 359
Whether you're into "punk" or not has nothing to do with whether you're going to fall in love with this record. You will. When this band set out to write and record these songs, nobody involved thought the result would have been as profound as it is. The resulting gospel, as sung and played by these legendary musicians is truly that - a gospel. Non religious, and more like pages ripped from a diary, these songs pull from the best of their classic rock influences, their unbreakable punk roots, and some seriously powerful shit going on in their lives. They reach from all over the musical and emotional spectrums - and pull it all back into one cohesive masterpiece.
This record paints McColgan and his brethren as transcendent forces in what many people feel is a stagnant (punk) rock scene. This is a band without limits; un-labelable and accessible to everyone - yet true to themselves and their roots all along the way. Americana, classic rock, country, tinges of punk rock, wrapped up in an uplifting folk, or even gospel backdrop; just without all the hand clapping...
For more than just STREET DOGS and DROPKICK MURPHYS fans, these tunes are going to make people VERY excited, and consistently prompt one question : Will FM359 save us all and go on tour, bringing this revival to the streets?
