Green Days Americana influenced big brothers have released their debut album - a record rooted in vulnerability

With little riffs going on in the background James tells it how it is. Yeah, things are tough. Life can be hard and this displayed that reality.

Re-release of this much sought after 5 track ep with an extra 13 raw, demo and live early hardcore blasts from Catatonics from Syracuse, New York
