Asbury Park Punk-Rock outfit Roulette sits only days away from unveiling its debut EP BrainDead and has teamed up with SIMGE to provide listeners a taste of what’s to come with the lead single “Screw Your Standards”, a torrential downpour of flame-licked six-string procedures and adversely sugar-coated refrains that invite all pit bosses to the foot of the stage for a collective gang chorus.
“BrainDead has a concept behind it but we wouldn’t call it a ‘concept album'” Roulette drummer Joe Scarpino said. “It’s dark, it’s loud, it’s fast, it’s angry, and lyrically relevant. We hope that people enjoy the lyrical content of the album as much as the instrumentals. We think there is this sense of tension….even frustration among people our age. We want listeners to know that we know. That we’re at that point too. And we hope that our music can be a bit of relief.”
Those who traverse the local Punk-Rock scene will recognize a familiar set of shredded vocals amongst the alluring howls of front-woman Jess Bariletti, as Roulette tapped Lost In Society’s own Zach Moyle to tackle a verse on this piece of scorched-earth Punk.
Stream “Screw Your Standards” below and be sure to see Roulette play it live when the band hosts its official release party on Saturday, November 15th at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch with support from Leeds, We’re Ghosts Now, Modern Suits, and True Friends and Dead Ends.
