The Transmission Now
White Night 7-Inch EP
Bethlehem, PA
(Setting Records)
“Frenzied punk from the Lehigh Valley…”

The new 7-inch from Bethlehem, PA natives The Transmission Now is a full-steam-ahead throwback to those amazing mid-’90s Epitaph label samplers. Fervent drums, woody bass lines and bombastic guitars rule the day and won’t take shit from anyone. Lead-off track “Time Bomb” builds to a frenzied, sing-along climax that segues perfectly into the EP’s title track, a nice mixture of pop-oriented NOFX-like punk with the more abrasive textures of their hardcore forefathers.

All in all, White Night is a perfect addition to any melodic punk fan’s ever-growing vinyl collection. The disc itself is pressed in a retina-burning shade of pink, and the black and white artwork comes courtesy of renowned pop artist Peter Stanick. Highly recommended.

Recorded & Mixed at Beercan Studios, Bethlehem, PA
