Propagandhi have today released their seventh studio album, ‘Victory Lap‘ on Epitaph.
The album follows up 2012’s ‘Failed States‘. Yup, it really was five years ago!
Confrontational and cathartic, ‘Victory Lap‘ delivers Propagandhi’s signature hybrid of snarling riffs, urgent rhythms, and politically charged lyrics. Like much of ‘Victory Lap‘, the track captures the frenetic energy off an unapologetically political band at a time when political speech seems overwhelmingly fractured.
Since forming in Manitoba in 1986, Propagandhi have brought an emphatic anti-fascist message to their music. Along with addressing a number of personal losses suffered in recent years, ‘Victory Lap‘ finds the band facing a landscape in which fascism is—among a certain crowd—suddenly trendy.
‘Victory Lap‘ also marks Propagandhi’s first album with new guitarist Sulynn Hago, who replaces longtime guitarist David Guillas (who appears on several tracks on the new album), Hago was added to the lineup after Propagandhi put out a call for audition tapes and received over 400 responses.
