Forming near the end of the Bush era, Washington, DC’s politically charged melodic hardcore act Technicians have never been afraid of voicing their anger towards the administration with their passionate anti-war stance often a theme in their writing. Now, it seems they have a new target in our Nation’s Capitol to direct their frustrations at and their debut LP, Now That We’re Home (due out April 14th) is the culmination of that ire. Fully recorded in 2015, the quartet was unhappy with the result and decided to start from scratch, re-recorded it themselves. In addition to the incredible cover art, the album features well written, topical songs, shredding guitars and unique, gut rumbling bass riffs. Stream it, exclusively here at Dying Scene, below!

When asked about the featured track, lead vocalist/guitarist Navid Marvi told us, “Funk/Spring is about taking action against oppression and staying informed and engaged with the political climate. It was written as a reaction to the Arab Spring and the 2009 Iranian election protests. People were killed in Cairo and Tehran as they marched—I’ll never forget the video of Nedā Āghā-Soltān’s last breaths. Sometimes you have to literally fight for what you believe in. We’ve seen that recently in the U.S. in Baltimore and Standing Rock.”
