the fallout – wage slave

Another track from the “Raise Your Flag And Other Anthems” 4-song 7-inch out now on Rebel Time Records.

Punk Online said of the record:

“The Fallout describe their sound as “straight-up, stripped-down politically-charged punk rock that’s got backbone and backbeat” and they are dead on the money. Their latest four-track EP, Raise Your Flag And Other Anthems, sees the Toronto, Canada based band on stellar form.

The fast-paced yet melodic punk rock of Red Light Union blends the likes of The Blitz, Bad Religion and the UK Subs to craft a belting sound with some excellent vocal interplay. The SLF like guitar opening to Walk In The Sun sets up a maniacally fast drumbeat and some seriously energetic punk rock power that blows away the cobwebs completely.

The superb Raise Your Flag is next, and the pace is maintained although the group vocals encourage a streetpunk, ‘punch the air’ response that had the entire office moshing with huge smiles on our faces. The closer, Wage Slave seals the deal with a chunky, serrated guitar and anthemic like vocal delivery. As the song fades, I am left with a feeling of discovering the spirit of punk alive and kicking with a rhythm section that is simply outstanding!”


Wage! Slave!

I’m getting hungry and they’re raising my rent
I got my paycheque but it’s already spent
My hands are tied because they’re clocking my time
Selling my life away for nickels and dimes

I’m a wage slave
Nothing more
Wage slave
Working poor

Wage! Slave!

From bull to bear the economy’s crashed
That’s why they can’t pay us any more cash
Hard to get by on this minimum wage
Indentured life I can’t escape
