04.12.2011New release: NOWHITERAG – „Silence is violence“
Hounded souls are rushing through temples of consumerism thanks to the upcoming commercial spectacle of the year – no room left for contemplation. The Italian D.I.Y.-Punx of NOWHITERAG are disturbing the “silent night” by screaming out their displeasure with dictates of commerce, religion and society. Their second full length album “Silence is violence” is currently released on MANIAC ATTACK RECORDS (CD/LP) as an international „D.I.Y. Conspiracy Co-Production“ involving NUCLEAR CHAOS, a label carried by band members. Regarding the fantastic artwork combined with multifaceted music ranging from impulsive pogo punk songs to „protest lullabies“ including harmonica and acoustic guitar there is no doubt that this record comes from years of sweat and passion.
