Maybe it’s not shocking given the surreal nature of the past year, but when I was approaching an album from mid-2020 called Transmitters, particularly one with song titles such as “Just Disbelievers” and “One Shot,” I envisioned something completely different from the one Houston punk band Steadfast created. Happily, I dare say that this polished and energetic album full of toe-tapping rhythms, sizzling guitar, and plenty of sing-along chorus parts is often even hopeful, a breath of fresh air in our troubling times.
Of the group’s debut offering, guitarist and vocalist Jason Bancroft explains:
“This album embodies our DIY ethics, self- determination, and a genuine passion to share & experience life together with our chosen family. It's honest with self-doubt and self-determination. It's patient but with a sense of urgency. It's peaceful yet angry. It's punk rock. It's ours to share.”
As its original July 2020 release was buried in the avalanche of everything 2020 had to offer humanity, Transmitters is getting a fresh push, and if you head over here and use the coupon code NEWVIDEO!, you get $5 off the record. Treat yourself to some good vibes on the full album stream below.
