DS Exclusive: The Windermeres stream new song “Libertarian Value System”

Today, we have a special treat for you. We’re premiering a brand new track from Denver punks The Windermeres titled “Libertarian Value System” (ft. Ross Hostage of Allout Helter).

You can check it out the video and a message from their singer Chris Windermere below.

The band’s upcoming album Continental Divide releases on August 12th via FtLP Records. It will be their second full-length, serving as a follow-up to 2014′s Anthem Of The Recession Generation. Pre-order the LP here.

“This song was inspired by the way we use the term, “Third World.” It’s a fallacy for us to put up this separation from other countries when our economies and ecologies are very much connected. One of my favorite bands, The Police, also wrote on this topic back 1982. It’s funny how much our country hasn’t changed in thirty years. The style of the song was influenced by my love of a local band called Muscle Beach and my love of early Black Flag. When we were demoing the song we dreamed of having guest vocalist on songs. Hip Hop artists do it all the time–and I wish punk rock did it more. We had Ross Hostage give us some notes on the demos. When he heard “LVS,” he told me he loved the lyrics, so we had to have him come in. He slays on it.”
