BOSS HOG’S NEW LP BROOD X — THE RHYTHM, THE REBEL!
A REVOLUTION OF THE MIND, ROCK’N’ROLL FOR BODY AND SOUL!
TIME TO STAND UP!!
HERE COME THE WOLVES —ARE YOU READY FOR THE REVOLUTION???
BOSS HOG returns from the wild with their most subversive record yet — this is the seductive soundtrack for the second coming of militant rock’n’roll, and the groove has never been stronger.
BROOD X — emerging from the dirty streets of New York City after 17 years gestation — is a futuristic brew of 21st Century blues, toxic punk rock beat music, and hyper-focused, outer-space psycho assaults. Thermo-nuclear chanteuse CRISTINA MARTINEZ blisters the hypocrites, the haters, the heartless, and the clueless hangers-on with a full-tilt microphone attack. A sex-bomb salvo for troubled times, Martinez give’s voice to America’s pain while pulling no punches.
BOSS HOG does not negotiate. This is scorched earth rock’n’roll for the resistance, barbed-wire blues battling for the future of the planet. Recorded & mixed at the fabled Key Club, using Sly Stone’s legendary There’s A Riot Going On console, BROOD X channels the subversive mojo of the underground and brings next-level sonics to save your very soul.
Tired of feeling sad? Tired of feeling beat-down? Tired of feeling used, abused, lied to, and shamed? Remember what it was like when rock’n’roll made everything all right??
BOSS HOG has heard your call.
BROOD X is the change you have been waiting for.
Let BOSS HOG lift you up.
BROOD X is a party you can believe in.
