Lafayette-based Dissonance & Dissent have just released their first album. It’s called World Stage Crescendo and features 12 skank-ready tracks from the ska punk ensemble.
On Dissonance & Dissent’s bandcamp page, the group explain the origins of some of the tunes featured:
“Some songs on this album date from the present day to the early 2000’s; sadly enough, it’s hard to make a distinction between the times they were written, because so little has changed over the last decade. We are still seeing young unarmed people of color being gunned down in the streets by a militarized police force, and women’s rights slowly being chipped away; while full equality is still a distant dream, people in the LGBTQIA+ community are fighting for the rights to merely love and exist, and the ever increasing approach to war seems to be just around the corner every time we watch the news or read the paper.”
You can check out World Stage Crescendo below.
It’s the first release from the band since their 2017 single “Recruit”.
