The Bomb (members of Naked Raygun, The Methadones, etc.) stream new song “Silent Fall”

Chicago punk super-group The Bomb (ft. Naked Raygun frontman Jeff Pezzati, Methadones drummer Mike Soucy, Pete Mittler (who has played bass for both of those bands) and Jeff Dean of All Eyes West) will be putting out a new 12″ EP titled The Axis of Awesome on March 17th through No Idea Records.

To tide you over til then, they’ve made one of the new songs available to stream! Here’s what drummer Mike Soucy had to say about “Silent Fall,” which can be heard down below:

“I wrote the lyrics about a shirt that I accidentally left at a bar in Blue Island. The title is a play on the words Island and Fall. The show was in October so go figure… I used words to describe the shirt that might also be appropriate when describing a girl. I didn’t want people reading them to think I lost a shirt. Who writes a song about a shirt?? I wanted them to think I lost the love of my life on an Island. And the word Fall made it sound more dramatic, I thought. The chorus even sounded more desperate and I purposefully used the word “us” to give a more personal touch to the shirt that I no longer had in my life. It also was the first song I ever did most of the vocal melodies for. Pezzatti changed the lyrics around a bit so it’s not quite the same. The idea is still there, though. It’s a simple tale of a man who lost the coolest shirt he’d ever had.”

Pre-orders for The Axis of Awesome are available on No Idea’s webstore. The first pressing of is limited to 325 copies on coke bottle clear vinyl with a special screen-printed B-side.
