Soldiers Of Destruction / Punk outfit to release debut album after 37 year break
5 May 2021
Formed in 1981, disbanded in 1984, Soldiers Of Destruction are back and ready to unleash their debut album ‘Cause And Affect’, set for release on 18 June 2021, via American’t Records.
Having played around 40 shows with bands such as The Exploited, GBH, UK Subs, and Peter And The Test Tube Babies, the band headlined venues such as the 100 club.
With original frontman Morat and backed by bassist Dave Thompson, guitarist Cru, and drummer John Feeney, their debut album is ready to be unleashed and the first track ‘Undefeated’ can be heard below.
Morat told MetalTalk: “‘Undefeated’ came about when that useless orange turd was in the White House, but it pertains just as much to Boris Johnson and his muppets in the UK. It’s very easy to get downhearted when they rob everyone blind to line their own pockets and literally get away with murder, but for every step they take back to the dark ages, we take a step forward.
“Gay marriage is legal, weed is legal or decriminalized in a lot of places, and as slow as progress seems, there is still progress. So long as we never give in, we are undefeated.”
With seven updated older tracks and seven brand new compositions, Morat says: “It’s kind of cool that our new fans don’t know which songs are old and which are new because we’ve kept the same attitude.”
The collection also features a guest vocal appearance from Nick Oliveri (Kyuss/QOTSA) on the track ‘Amphetamines’ and ‘Also Gazes.’
Morat says: “I’ve known Nick for years. When we recorded the song ‘Amphetamines’, it was a no-brainer to ask him if he’d scream on it.”
