The Owen Guns release new video for single “Sick”

The Owen Guns release new video for single “Sick” on 22nd February, via Riot Records.

The Owen Guns dropped their latest EP “Violating Community Standards” in August last year and the controversial (albeit tongue in cheek) band caused quite a stir. “Sick” is the first single from their new EP “EP 2 Electric Boogaloo” which is out in late May on Riot Records/Golden Robot Records.

Sick is a punchy hardcore punk rock tune dedicated to the morons who thought it was a good idea to stockpile toilet paper during a pandemic. Short, sharp, and angry – it pulls no punches.  Co-written by Adam Check of Toe to Toe/One Dollar short.

“Electric Boogaloo” was Recorded and Mixed by Geoff Mullard at RTN studios and mastered by Jason Fuller at Goatsound, It’s 7 tracks which range from furious to funny, blending old-school hardcore with sing along punk rock and adding a metal edge. Full of blazing solos and group choruses, there’s never a lull from the onslaught of punk rock yet the band even have time to show their “sensitive” side with a faithful cover of the Hard-ons Aussie punk classic “Just Being With You”.  The guitar thrashes and wails, the bass and drums pound and the vocalist rants and raves at everything that annoys him. It’s an EP that shows the band in full flight.  No prisoners taken, no fu**s given. It’s raw and raucous – just how punk should be.
