Punk rock rabble-rousers, Public Opinion, have announced that their new EP, Modern Convenience, is due out on May 27th via Convulse Records. The Denver based group make razor sharp songs that traffic in equal parts melody and bite, and the five songs on Modern Convenience make for an instantly appealing introduction. To mark the announcement Public Opinion have shared the title track from Modern Convenience, along with an accompanying video. The song is a hyper-active stomper that splits the difference between hardcore delivery, garage rock swagger and early 2000’s indie hooks. 

Co-produced by Ian Shelton (Militarie Gun / Regional Justice Center) and engineer Phil OdomModern Convenience combines primal first wave punk with a sense of unabashed catchiness and ends up sounding like the work of a guitar pop band that plays with uncharacteristic ferocity, or perhaps a hardcore band that just can’t help but write pop songs. Lyrically, Public Opinion vocalist/songwriter Kevin Hart explores the endless discord that permeates our everyday lives, particularly with the stressors of the internet so readily available at any moment. The result is a taut 12 minutes of electrifying music that pulls no punches without sacrificing the fun. Public Opinion will also be supporting Modern Convenience with a run of Midwest and West Coast tour dates this Spring.
