Product Notes

Blurring the lines between punk, hardcore and rock further, The Redemption Song return with Victims ; a shorter, faster and louder assault showing a band continuing to push things forward. The five song follow up to the 2003 debut full length, Plays Dead In Stereo, is years ahead in focus, content and delivery driven by a more streamlined, straightforward approach, while still finding new ways to expand. Victims tells five stories; hopelessness, exploitation, the will to live, power and last chances. It's not exactly a concept record, but it is a five part comment on the world created for us and the one we create for the future; a mission statement about learning how to live. 'In The Name Of The Father' is a blistering cry for help about lives gone wrong; fast and angry but still catchy and creative. 'These Days (They Hardly Know Me)' is a fist pumping rock & roll anthem fueled by the will to live in the midst of death, and 'Sleepers' is a blast of aggressive and explosive punk, radiating with energy that burns out screaming '...time marches on and on and on', and fades into white noise, where the record began. Refusing to accept the easy hardcore formula followed so closely today, The Redemption Song instead chooses to bring back something new to the hardcore community, while at the same time taking hardcore back to where it began; music that has something to say, that humanity cannot be so short-sighted, and that we must look beyond ourselves. Songwriting and content are pushed to the forefront instead of posing, and a genuine punk rock attitude forgets hype and burns with spitfire vocals and an unapologetic chaos. Victims proves The Redemption Song aren't dead, they're only getting started...
