D.O.A. New Album Kickstarter Campaign: Washington Dates Announced

D.O.A. New Album Kickstarter Campaign:  Washington Dates Announced

D.O.A. is starting work on a new studio album. The band started in 1978 and is known as Canada’s punk pioneers. Canada’s godfather of punk Joe Shithead Keithley originated the term ‘hardcore” back in 1980 and the band pushed the term into the common vernacular with their landmark album Hardcore 81. Now the band needs funding to help pay for their new 12 song studio album HARD RAIN FALLING.

When I started writing songs for Hard Rain Falling I listened to our early stuff like Hardcore 81 and the Disco Sucks EP and I tried to take same direct to the point, wild and political approach,” says Keithley. “So it’s back to D.O.A.’s roots the way we are approaching this album.”

Keithley with the help of his notorious rhythm section, Paddy Duddy (drums) and Mike Hodsall (bass) will record an album that harks back to the basics of early punk. It will contain fast, short, frantic songs that dive deep into urgent issues of out time: racism, war, gangs, oil pipelines and environmental degradation.

There are all sorts of unique ways to participate with a ton of different packages: Signed CDs, signed D.O.A. w/ Black Flag posters, D.O.A. w/ Minor Threat posters, D.O.A. guitar and bass played on the bands’ 2014 China Tour, signed drum skins from the album recording, Shithead’s jean jacket, stickers, Joe’s Green Party and NDP campaign lawn signs, a punk rock tour of Vancouver w/ Joe, download of the new album and maybe even D.O.A. playing in your basement
