“Cue circle pit in 3…2…1…”

Bullet Treatment is a unique band indeed. With its only stable member being Chuck Dietrich, Bullet Treatment is a semi-super-group that consists of whoever is down to jump on a track (past members have drawn from Anti-Flag, Strike Anywhere, Suicidal Tendencies, Good Riddance, etc). Their latest recording is sort of a proper follow-up to 2006’s The Mistake (their 2009 release, Designated, was more of an experiment that featured one song played multiple times with different lyrics/vocalists on each version). 

Ex-Breathers is eight songs, and clocks in at about nine and a half minutes. This is furious, fast, loud punk rock at its best. Bullet Treatment is everything that early LA punk and hardcore had to offer, just recorded on higher quality equipment. For those who downloaded the “new” Black Flag single and remembered that jam bands were absolute crap, go track down Ex-Breathers and smash your face into a brick wall for fun. Quite simply, Bullet Treatment is the truth.
