Worthless United I Am Nothing

A precursor to their new album due out in May, this four-song blitz of exhilarating punk rock commands attention. It’s difficult to believe that a band similar to Rancid could sound better than Rancid, but these blokes pull it off effortlessly while pushing it directly into your face. Moreover it’s nice to see a band paying homage to those long lost New Jersey punk popsters, Sticks and Stones, and that’s exactly what they do with their gruff cover of "Saved.” An excellent beginning to something greater to come.
