Rough Francis (sons of Death) releasing a new album, playing shows (dates & 2 new song streams)

Rough Francis

Rough Francis, the band led by the three sons of Bobby Hackney of legendary protopunk band Death (who members of Rough Francis now also play in), are releasing a new album, Maximum Soul Power, on March 11 via Riot House Records (pre-order). They’re likely more than a little influenced by their father’s band (and the vocals are similar too), giving the album a real ’70s-era punk vibe. Its newest single, “Home Invasion,” makes its premiere in this post, and that can be streamed, along with another album cut, “I-90 East,” below. The album artwork and tracklist are below as well.

Rough Francis also have a few dates coming up in March, including a NYC show happening on March 23 at Grand Victory with Don’t. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
