Iron Reagan share new song “Grim Business,” made us year-end lists
Political-thrash satirists Iron Reagan are getting ready to release their new album Crossover Ministry on February 3 via Relapse. They’ve shared a new song from the album, a searing riff-machine called “Grim Business,” which you can listen to below.
Meanwhile, singer Tony Foresta and guitarist Mark Bronzino have offered up some year-end lists. Tony’s is a list of stuff that happened in 2016 and is pretty hilarious and includes Dave Lombardo, Star Wars, hot sauce, City of Caterpillar, and more (and it might be the only such list on which Burger King’s Cheetos Chicken Fries appear). Meanwhile, Mark highlights a handful of young bands to watch for in the future, and he includes Gatecreeper (who also show up on Tony’s list), Sick Shit, Haram, Razorheads, Pure Disgust and more.
Check out “Grim Business” (via Stereogum) and both of those lists below.
TONY FORESTA (IRON REAGAN)
Lots of bad stuff happened this year but we’re not focusing on that shit right now. Here’s my top 9 random highlights of 2016:
Star Wars Rogue 1– haven’t seen it yet but you know it’s going to rule.
Dave Lombardo joins Suicidal Tendencies– Sui sounds the best they have in years. I mean him drumming for the Misfits is pretty tight, too, but let’s face it, the drummer of Def Leppard could play that gig.
Gatecreeper – Sonoran Deprivation. This record will make you throw up blood… on a church.
City of Caterpillar announcing reunion shows! Old pals bringing back tons of fond memories. It’s no wonder these shows sold out in minutes. So pumped.
Burger King’s Cheetos Chicken Fries– I’m just playing, these things are fucking nasty.
The Bill Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar squash match– nobody saw that one coming. Even if you hate Goldberg because he can’t wrestle that shit was still tight. Also the Aj Styles, Dean Ambrose, James Ellsworth feud is getting good.
Releasing Liquid Arson– My own hot sauce with Tears of Joy! Shameless plug. Whatever. I’m proud of it and Brian at Tears of Joy killed it.
Stranger Things– This show came out of nowhere and captured all of our binge-watching hearts. It’s almost unbelievable that even more ladies shaved their heads this year for 11 costumes than last year’s Mad Max halloween hair epidemic.
That dude Glenn on Walking Dead dying– I haven’t even seen the episode yet but thanks for ruining it for everyone you meme loving fucks.
