SoCal punk rockers, Infamous Stiffs, are back with a six song live EP, “Lockdown Live“, their second release on Riot Records/Golden Robot Records, available for pre-order/add/save, with new single Kill for the Sound (Live) out now alongside the music video for the track.
Made in 2021 at the height of the global Covid 19 pandemic at the famous Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, California, “Lockdown Live” is what happens after a year of…well, being locked down.
Rife with pent up energy and aggression, the results of this experiment speak for themselves. Catchy, hard and unforgiving, “Lockdown Live” offers a real-time perspective on the songs and of the current state of affairs. It’s a little something to chew on during these lean times of uncertainty and the doldrums we all face.
