Sydney punkers The Phosphorus Bombs released the new 7-track EP '...Against You!', a chaotic mix of melodic skatepunk and abrasive hardcore with a sprinkling of tech, horns, and face-melting shred. Recorded and produced on the traditional lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation by Jay Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb, Neptune Power Federation) at The Pet Food Factory, mixed by Clem Bennett and mastered by Tim Carr.
The Phosphorus Bombs believe in the tradition of confrontational discourse for progress. On prior releases, they have explored a variety of topics specific to the Australian political and cultural landscape. Not one weapon in the hardcore and punk armory was spared as the band laid down track after track of biting inquiry into the traditional way of doing things. On '...Against You!' they take aim at themselves in the hope of being better human beings. Through a dynamic mix of punk rock melody and abrasive hardcore, this EP mirrors difficult conversations held between friends. Using anger as a facilitator rather than a deterrent, it is devoted to all the loved ones who have compassionately challenged their certainties, those that rot out the love from within.
