DS Interview: Booze & Glory discuss their new album “Chapter IV”

One of the less covered genre’s in the punk world is Oi! Whether it be because of stigma or misinformation oi! punk remains one of the truest forms of punk rock expression. London’s Booze and Glory are fresh off their latest masterpiece released in March on Burning Heart Records, “Chapter IV” is the most complete Booze and Glory album yet. “Chapter IV” is packed with fast paced old school punk rock anthems and ageless wisdom. With the recent release of “Chapter IV” we had a chance to catch up with the legends of oi!

Check out the full interview below.



Album Review: Booze & Glory – “Chapter IV”

Pull out your combat boots and throw on your old suspenders, get ready to bust some heads and drink some pints. London’s oi! punk legends Booze and Glory are back with a brand new album that will have you singing along and thrashing about the living room like you’re in an East London pub at last call. After a battle with cancer and a few lineup changes, Booze and Glory are back with their most intriguing, anthemic album yet. 

“Chapter IV” is an album that shows a band’s true growth, the songs on the new album carry a certain message of carrying on, unity, and life passing you by. It’s a more introspective album, an album that makes you think while still keeping your head moving. While the lovely simplicity of oi! punk is still there in the guitars and drums, the lyrics carry a certain maturity that many modern oi! punk bands are lacking. The anthemic lyrics and bass heavy guitar riffs lend comparison to Rancid, but with a more real feel. The album starts out with “Days, Months, Years,” a song that starts with a superbly un-oi piano solo before carrying us off to the very best in anthemic London oi.  “Carry On” gives us a full on assault on anthemic lyrics, “but, look at me I still carry on” sounds like something just waiting to be shouted at the top of your lungs. The songs from start to finish carry meaning, and it’s a true jewel in the library of any punk fan, let alone a fan of oi! 

The new album is simply that for Booze and Glory, “Chapter IV” is the fourth full length release from the London natives, and truly the next chapter of growth for a band that already boasts a pretty loyal following. New listeners and old of Booze and Glory will find “Chapter IV” to be a great example of what Oi! Punk truly can be. Simple yet mature. From “Days, Months, Years” to “Start Believing,” Booze and Glory has knocked it out of the park.

Booze and Glory gave us everything we expected and more. This isn’t the early rough recordings of Booze and Glory we’ve gotten used to, “Chapter IV” released through Burning Heart Records is Booze and Glory at its finest, and leaves us just salivating for more.
