Downtown Boys Share Badass Track ‘A Wall’ and Announce New Album Deets

The ferocious Downtown Boys have shared their badass new single ‘A Wall’ and announce the deets for the release of their third album Cost of Living.

The Sub Pop signings will unleash Cost of Living on August 11th as part of their next phase to fight the good fight in what a recent press release calls the “struggle to smash racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, boredom, and all things people use to try to close our minds, eyes and hearts.”

The Providence band enlisted Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto for the follow up to their 2015 album Full Communism. The new radicals will also be hitting the road hard for loads of tour dates in 2017.
