NEW D.O.A ALBUM
D.O.A.’s 14th studio album WE COME IN PEACE. Canada’s punk pioneers, have pulled out all the stops on this new red hot release. Produced by Sean Holowaychuk, Sho Murray and Canada’s godfather of punk Joe Keithley, WE COME IN PEACE has all the firepower, politics and humor that are the cornerstones of any great D.O.A. album, but on this disc you’ll see that Keithley’s songwriting has branched out in a most fruitful and adventurous way.
The album takes a determined political stance with songs like: Dirty Bastards, We’re Bloodied But Unbowed, He’s Got A Gun and a stirring version of the Toxic Reason’s War Hero. There’s also a heavy slice of reggae/dub, with the uber-melodic Walk Through This World. You’ll get your head ripped off with crushing anthems like: Who The Hell Do You Think You Are, Bring Out Your Dead and Boneyard, which features Hugh Dillon (Headstones). There’s more great guest vocal appearances that feature Jello Biafra on the anthemic We Occupy and Ben Kowalewicz (Billy Talent) on the frantic Do You Wanna.Perhaps the most uplifting moments of the album come later on with one Joe’s best new compositions Lost Souls and his Clint Eastwood/spaghetti western opus The Man With No Name. D.O.A. also rip it up with a strong and steady version of The Beatles classic song Revolution.
Along the way Joe took his old friend Jello Biafra’s advice and recorded an acoustic version of the D.O.A. classic General Strike (CD only) as a sign of the times.
Reviews are calling this D.O.A’s best album since the mighty War on 45.
