London, UK high energy punk and rollers Desperate Measures are set to release their brand new full length, Sublime Destruction, on March 22nd via Cadiz Music. Loaded with eleven personal and political, hook laden anthems, the album was written over the last two years and during the pandemic. Featuring previous singles, Thinking Of England, Back To The Rats and the album’s title track, Sublime Destruction was recorded with Andy Brook at The Brook Studios, Wallington, Surrey.

From the opening roar of Back To The Rats, the Sex Pistols riffarama of The Rich-Tual and the danced-up Stooges grooves of Enjoy The Ride, through to the Psychedelic Furs like Untouchable and the epic ode to North London, Seven Sisters, Sublime Destruction is anything but sublime. Instead, it’s a huge statement of intent from a band that back up their in-your-face attitude 100% on the stage.

Dead Boys

Desperate Measures will be promoting the album in the company of US punk legends the Dead Boys next month with further dates planned across the UK throughout 2024.
