Insurgence, AKA Insurgence DC, bring us their first full length album in 20 years with 'Broken In The Theater Of The Absurd'. With a strong punk 1980's influence, in the stylings of the Clash, Fugazi and the Minutemen) this entire Insurgence DC (Da Capo) album is about recognizing and surviving in the greedy, corrupt and polarized landscape of modern-day America. The anthemic 'Salt' starts out with the words 'Of The People, By The People and For The Few It Seems'. The powerful 'Outline Of Chalk' is an intense, heartfelt voice against leaders who take their 'blood pay from the NRA'. Many other songs such as 'Poison Profits', 'Pick Pocket Pirates', 'Dishonor' and 'Polarization' also point out and reveal the unethical politicians on Capitol Hill ('Snakes in Suits') and the slimy corporations that pay these leaders until they 'Kick That Can' and leave it for future generations to clean up. In doing so they 'The Few' have tapped into and virtually broken the backbone of our entire legislative and legal system. The songs 'True To Life' and 'Third Part Opinions' are more introspective anthems, suggesting people form their own opinions and take an individual stance on matters rather than 'following like sheep'.
'Broken In The Theater Of The Absurd' was recorded at various studios and mixed in 2018-2019 in Arlington, VA at Inner Ear Studios with Don Zientara and in Raleigh, NC at Pershing Hill Studios with Greg Elkins.
