Dillinger Four: Civil War

Dillinger Four
Civil War
Fat Wreck Chords [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
One of our favorite Minneapolis punk bands the Dillinger Four make a return with Civil War after a lengthy six years since their last release. This is their second album for Fat Wreck Chords and their punk is as strong as ever but being a more mature band the groups lyrics are now a bit more socially conscious. Everything from the government to the economy is covered on Civil War (catchy title) and the record finds the band at the top of their game and ready for a full come back to the scene, which we welcome with open arms!

Key Tracks: "Minimum Wage Is A Gateway Drug"

Band With Similar Fire: Bad Religion
