New Punkanormal podcast is up! Interviews with Ian Tomele of Voice Of Addiction as well as Poli and Jen of The Bombpops! and spinning KRANG, Debt Neglector, Shirley D. Pressed, Cobra Skulls, Descendents, Alkaline Trio, Pennywise. 


"The thought and care, improbably as those words might seem for such an aggressive album, put into the writing and recording of The Lost Art of Empathy is palpable and stands as rowdy testimony that guitar driven bands still have something important to say and contribute. " #newreview in No Depression Magazine 


"Few singers today can match the blood vein bursting screams Tomele’s able to dredge up from within and it’s wholly believable, never forced." "The Lost Art of Empathy re-establishes Voice of Addiction as one of modern punk rock’s smartest and most musically adept acts" Thanx Too Much Love Magazine 


Ian Tomele of V.o.A. recently did a lengthy interview about an "Artists role in Politics" Ltatm Radio Check it out!


"The Chicago punk scene has always been close-knit and vibrant, but they’ve produced few bands with the staying power and ever-growing pedigree we find with Voice of Addiction. Tomele is more than capable of summoning up a bone-chilling yowl from his lungs that gives these songs real razor teeth. He doesn’t have to convince me that he’s sacrificed a lot to make music – any awake listener can hear the palpable passion in his performances on The Lost Art of Empathy from the outset and it never relents." Thanx @cashbox.canada
