On August 15, Portland, OR's Era Bleak will release their debut LP on Dirt Cult Records. The self-titled record follows a 2018 demo and follows a similar sonic trajectory, inspired by Cold War-era doomsday messages and rampant political anxiety.
Zach Brooks, from the band, offers a statement that is directly about the group's videos but also pertains to their sound in general:
The year is 2020 and we are living in a 1980s punk dystopian sci-fi novel. A pandemic is raging. When we are not donning masks to go out in public, we have nothing to do besides smoke legal weed out of electronic cigarettes and lose ourselves in disinformation. The president of the United States is Jello Biafra's worst nightmare... a buffoon so grotesque we would have had a hard time believing the character was realistic had our current reality actually been a 1980s punk dystopian sci-fi novel.
