A lot has happened in the three years since the "FUTURO PRIMITIVO" EP dropped in correlation with the band's 2016 Japanese tour and now VAASKA returns to a world that's worse off with what could possibly be their final statement in the form of the "INOCENTES CONDENADOS" EP. Six tracks of smoldering D-Beat based hardcore punk which could arguably be the greatest recording session of their 10+ years as a band. Mastered by Kenko at Communichaos Media Clay Station in Sweden AKA exactly who you want to be twisting the knobs on a project like this. Each record comes in a Discharge style pocket sleeve with collaborative effort imagery by Todo Destruido, Jack Blackmon and Ryan Fromdeland. Limited to 500 copies.

Saw Haram at Oklahoma's Everything Is Not OK III festival, and have never seen a show get more fucking insane. Haram were killing it, people were literally flying all over the place, including the vocalist. But it's more than that. Haram stands out as one of the most culturally relevant and important bands in the states, challenging issues of cultural and social oppression for all marginalized peoples. Vocalist Nader also sings in Arabic and stands full force against the racism and religious phobia faced by middle eastern americans, issues that have relentlessly plagued our country and people, even before 9/11. I highly recommend reading his interviews, I challenge all to join and support them in this effort. I hope I've done an at least passable job representing them here. I also consider myself lucky to have seen them. Ariele Betterton
