Published Feb 18, 2014Montreal-based punk rock nerds BOIDS (which, according to their Facebook page, stands for Boys of Intelligent Design & Style) have been tearing up the Canadian punk scene ever since their formation back in 2012. But after years of waiting, the band are finally ready to issue their first-ever LP on Stomp Records. You can stream their debut album, We Stalk Each Other Like Animals, in the player below ahead of its February 25 release date.
According to a press release, the album perfectly channels "love, heartache, cosmic frustration and inspiration into a sweaty mess of punk, thrash, and old-school hardcore," and we couldn't agree more. Whether it's the whoa-filled "Back in My Arms" or the pub-ready power punk of tracks like "Gamma Rays" and punishing album opener "Hong Kong Candy," it's hard not to find something to raise your glass to on this 13-track scorcher.
Hear for yourself by listening to the album at the bottom of the page, which you can find underneath the band's upcoming tour itinerary. The tour includes a number of dates with Canadian Celtic punk stalwarts the Real McKenzies.
