Here’s the official statement:
Canada’s punk pioneers recorded the bed tracks this past December and have just finished all the overdubs, Sho Murray and Chon (co-producers) start mixing this week. The album will be out in June on Sudden Death Records. We Come In Peace takes a determined political stance with songs like: We Occupy, Dirty Bastards, We’re Bloodied But Unbowed and Fuck It. The album also features a heavy slice of ska, reggae and dub, with five songs in this vein, including a stirring version of Toxic Reason’s classic: War Hero. You’ll also get your head ripped off with crushing anthems like: Boneyard, Bring Out Your Dead and Who The Hell Do You Think You Are. Joe Shithead Keithley, Canada’s godfather of hardcore also took his old friend Jello Biafra’s advice and recorded an acoustic version of D.O.A.’s classic General Strike, as a sign of the times.
D.O.A. have also recorded a great version of the Beatles Revolution.
D.O.A. The Men of action will take their frantic and all powerful, devil may care live show to Europe this May. Joe’s blitzkrieg vocal and guitar attack is driven along by the incredible rhythm section of Dirty Dan Sedan on bass and new drummer JJ Heath. The 20 date tour features stops in six different countries. Six shows in Germany, four in Italy, four in France, three in Spain, two in Switzerland and one stop in the Netherlands.
Win a free copy of D.O.A.’s new album We Come In Peace. All you have to do is pass this press release along to 10 friends and then email [email protected] with a short story about a D.O.A. show you’ve been to over the years. We will then send you a link where you will be able to download the new album. Then the busy beavers at Sudden Death will go through the stories and pick out the 10 best and send the winners special prize packs of either the CD or LP version (which ever you prefer) a D.O.A. t-shirt, badges, stickers and a pair of free tickets to any D.O.A. tour date in 2012 and 2013. We will feature all the stories sent in on a new section of our website.
