Sid Broderius and the Emergency Exit is an outfit from Spokane, but also from Texas, made up of a frontman who can’t seem to stay in one place, backed by whatever desperadoes happen to be around. Today, they have released a new video to support their latest single “The Last Time.”
For those not familiar with the group, the name ‘The Emergency Exit’ came from the fact that frontman Sid started the band knowing he’d have to leave the Northwest. In his new homestead, he recruited local players from the Rio Grande Valley and recorded the single we bring you today. In his own words, “it’s about friends beating addiction.”
The song itself is filled with giant walls of crystalline woahs, Fat Wreck-style attitude, and an occasional foray into ska. It’s an amalgam of 90s punk rock with the emotional rawness of acts like The Flatliners. Check out the video below, and if you like what you hear, pick it up on their bandcamp.
