Sore Points - self titled

Two years ago when I reviewed Sore Points' demo tape, I knew this Vancouver trio was destined for great things. Now in 2018, we get a proper debut album from Sore Points on the legendary Deranged Records. You could not find a more perfect match between band and label! And I gotta tell you, this album does not disappoint! The band powers through 12 fast & blistering punk tunes a la Vancouver greats DOA and Subhumans. What's not to love here? This is urgent, powerful music played with conviction and fury. Only one track sneaks past the two-minute mark, and it barely makes it! And how killer is that production?! If you fondly recall a time when hardcore and punk were basically the same thing, you need Sore Points in your life. A classic debut!
