Nestled along the Jersey Shore, in the cradle of a state where companies like Bayer and Global Pharma Tek set up shop, SCHOOL DRUGS are set to release their debut full-length release to a drug riddled nation. The album features 10 tracks of highly medicated yet seldom sedated hardcore punk. A true Adderall blitz through the genealogy of the genre that brings to mind the likes of BLACK FLAG, POISON IDEA, and BAD BRAINS. Based on a steady diet of ’80s classics, SCHOOL DRUGS are still pissed, only now they know how to express it: fast, loud, angry with a cheeky grin, proper fucking punk. Every component—name, tempo, stage antics, artwork—is a pushback, a reminder of what punk is, why punk is, and how punk is. It is necessary to wipe the slate clean periodically, remembering the formula but starting again. Welcome to the age of SCHOOL DRUGS, class is in session; pay attention.
