Houston Calling

Something Fierce set to return with Don’t Be So Cruel

March 1st, 2011 · 1 Comment

Houston punk band Something Fierce returns on April 12th with Don’t Be So Cruel, an album the band describes as:

While undeniably influenced by various strands of 70s punk, this record is slightly more subtle and sophisticated than mere 77-revivalists would have it. Slightly nuanced, almost understated at times, vapid party-punk this is most definitely not. Thoughtful, well written, well-played songs that strike a perfect balance between fun and smart.

Kinda reminds us of when the original UK bands were just starting to branch out from the punk template, but before the head-on dive into post-punk artiness. More 79 than 77, if you know what we mean.

The album will be available via Dirtnap Records, which has an open-to-the-public showcase in Austin during SXSW at Habana Calle on Saturday, 3.19.11.
