Songs off their new demo, released February, 2015, touch on all the topics I love to get angry about: shitty dudes mistreating ladies, the fucked up police state and the "gentrification" that fucks us all over in the end. The lyrics are unabashed ("Murder, hunger, poverty/ You just turn a blind eye/ Can't you hear the people scream?/ Fuck your goddamn football team!"). The rhythm is fast and abrasive.
My biggest complaint is that this demo is only 3 songs short-- which is the musical equivalent of nearly reaching climax and then your mom walks in on you, or the dog tries to jump on the bed, or I don't know... I want more, but it's done.
Do yourself a favor, head over to FCON's bandcamp page and give it a listen for free. Better yet, buy it at their "name your price" listing. Or even fucking better, catch their live set TONIGHT at the Metcalf Manor (Olympia, WA). Out-of-town fans can catch them at Libertatia (CA) this summer!
