Put Down That Pipe And Pick Up Some Hope
Released on June 8, 2007
Milwaukee's Avoided is back with their fourth full-length record, destined to change the face of hardcore punk rock for the 20th century. If you are a fan of MDC, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, and Verbal Abuse, then you should definitely check out this release. Always uncomprimising in their aggressive sound and rabid stage shows, "Put Down That Pipe and Pick Up Some Hope" is arguably the band's best record to date. With only eight songs and just over a half hour long, Avoided's onslaught will leave you on your back, swearing, sweating and begging for more. The album embraces the anger, bitterness, and futility of existence and throws it back into the face of any enemy.
