Strike Anywhere

Dead FM

Fat Wreck Chords 706

Released on September 5, 2006


Lyrically, Strike Anywhere have become known for their intense social and political critiques, and while those themes are developed further and fiercer on Dead FM, the songs are grounded and strengthened by a biographical candor that is inclusive enough for those of us unfamiliar with Noam Chomsky to comprehend. From the opening scream of “Sedition” (which chronicles Barnett’s grandfather’s unknowing role in the Manhattan Project) to “House Arrest” (which is probably the catchiest song ever written about being unjustly incarcerated), Dead FM chronicles actual experiences instead of relying on empty slogans. However, like all of Strike Anywhere’s music, there’s a red thread of hopefulness imbedded in the album’s storied themes. But ultimately Strike Anywhere aren’t martyrs, nor do they claim to be. They’re simply trying to give back to a community that changed their lives and these days that means singing about their friendships and commitment to the punk subculture. “The catharsis is as real as it ever needed to be on Dead FM, and we really put our hearts into this record”, Barnett sums up.

Alright, now, this is probably going to sound like a cliche punk album review from a punk fan, but this album is truely an incredible album. These guys have come a long way, and they are at their prime right now. This album is their catchiest, and most memorable. Song after song, there isn't a bad one on here, it's incredibly grabbing and quite political.

If you are looking for some real punk, that is incredibly catchy, but not typical, this is for you.

strike anywhere cannot go wrong. this album goes back to their hardcore-type roots, and moves away from the 'exit english' phase(which was also good,just slightly less hard). 'sedition' 'instinct' 'ballad of bloddy run' all amazing tracks., i love these boys, and cannot wait to see them with the bouncing souls in april!

Possibly the most "punk" contemporary band. Regardless, this record is an absolute masterpiece of vintage hardcore punk. Strike Anywhere is the embodiment of the culture; they've got the ideals, the awareness, and most of all the energy. All of these elements appear in spades on Dead FM. Also, the songs are just plain fun to sing along with. Put down that Brand New record, and pick up this one...unless you want punk to die. You don't want that, do you sir?

i was a little bit disappointed with "dead fm". strike anywhere has been a favorite ever since a friend showed me "change is a sound" but some of the songs on here just kinda drag on and aren't too fun to listen to. this is deffinately their most varied cd in terms of songs; there are fast hardcore songs like in "change is a sound", songs that just stand out like every song in "exit english" did, and the other songs on this cd are something completely new that have more of a pop punk vibe to them you couldn't mistake "dead fm" for anyone else but SA by reading the lyrics but a few songs like "speak to our empty pockets" or "two thousand voices" just drag on and on. i saw SA live on their dead note tour and they mainly stuck to their older songs, the newer songs they played were "sedition", "prisoner echoes", and "insitnct" all of which sounded great so you won't have to worry about them becoming to poppy. i also got to talk to thomas there

even with the crappy songs on this album, i still liked it and any fan of SA will. they still put on an awesome live show. if this is your first SA album then i suggest "change is a sound" first though

Dead FM is good, I mean real good. Great CD from start to finish. Tracks 1, 3, 6, 7, and 9 are the best. Just saw them live for the third time and once again they did not dissapoint. Go see them live if you get the chance. Check out Chorus of One if you want another Strike Anywhere CD.

With their arrival on Fat Wreck, i was interested to see what kind of turn these guys would take in their music. Much to my delight they have kept the integrity that made them great in the past. Powerfull, politically charged songs fill this album as they have in the past. I really like this, but not as much as Exit English. They still remain one of my favorite bands to see live and these songs should make a nice addition to their sets.

Pretty good Strike Anywhere release, best song is definately Hollywood Cemetery. There's a lot of songs that really stand out on this cd but a good 5 or 6 that i don't really think are that enjoyable to listen to. If you like Strike Anywhere definately get Change is A Sound first because that cd is amazing and a lot better than this. I was expecting a little more from this cd but it's not a bad cd by any means. A lot more melodic and it has better production but something's missing on some of the songs.

Eegghh... Every Strike Anywhere album sounds pretty much like the last. I bought Change is a Sound a few years ago and loved every second of it. Then I got Exit English, and liked it, but it kinda sounded like the other. So I was excited to get Dead FM, since it was released on Fat. But I'll be damned if it didn't sound like the old stuff. Don't get me wrong, it's still a decent album... I just expected more this time around.
