Spanish Punk Rock Trio Reveal New Single “Drink Hunter”

due out on La Castanya 2 October

Spanish pop-punk trio Aliment release their second album Silverback via Barcelona label La Castanya in October. Their debut LP Holy Slap was released in 2012 and they played a flurry of shows including a 10 date tour with American band Obits.

The ten songs on the album sound urgent and energetic, yet have grown weightier, possessing a sense of nocturnal abandon fueled by alcohol. Songs like “No Fuzz” or “Razors” remind us of the Aliment that fans love and cherish, but songs such as “My filthy old soundays” or “Moving Mountains” represent a new version of the band. Tougher, more compact and even, perhaps, more grown-up, they sound similar to The Marked Men or the melodic power pop sensibility of a much heavier Pointed Sticks. With Silverback they even dare to introduce vocal changes, being more comfortable in lower registers than ever before, which brings them closer to the canons of classic punk rock without veering away from more contemporary influences such as Jay Reatard, Carbonas or Bad Sports. Like all these bands, Aliment feel most comfortable on the poppier side of punk.

Whilst a lot of things have changed, the essence is still there; just like the damn Costa Brava is still there or whiskey and coke is still there.  Silverback is faithful to the band’s nature, raging yet happy punk-pop wrapped in lyrics about the good and the bad in human relationships. They combine a frenetic and noisy wall of sound with the need to live, sing along and make us dance – with our fists in the air.
