DIRTY FENCES (NY)http://greenwayrecords.storenvy.com/products/21333209-dirty-fences-goodbye-loveTouring on their new album "Goodbye Love" - Dirty Fences return to St. Louis! "In the hyperbole of music releases, rarely do a band live up to the moniker of all-time party rock ‘n’ roll band, but Dirty Fences are no doubt one of the current crop of bands vying for the top spot. Their live shows are an awesome explosion of power-pop punk wrapped up in hijinks and, if they ever reach the dizzying heights of those who influence them, no doubt pyrotechnic mayhem. It’s a sound that they perfectly encapsulated on their previous albums, but this time they’ve upped their game, adding a subtle layer of pop sheen to their rougher and grimier punk edges." - Nathan Whittle (Louder Than War)Shitstorm (St. Louis) https://shitstormstl.bandcamp.com/9PM$7 All Ages
