Dirty Rotten Imbeciles: But Wait…There’s a New D.R.I. Record!

1023

After twenty-one dirty, rotten, imbecilic years of silence, crossover thrash blasters D.R.I. return with the pointedly-titled But Wait… There’s More! EP. As nature intended, the record crams five tracks into just under ten minutes. This marks our MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW coauthor Harald Oimoen’s official recording debut after spending nearly two decades in the band.

Frontman Kurt Brecht describes them as: “More old-school hardcore, without the metal guitar sound.” That suits us fine—although all eras of D.R.I. suit us fine; the skinny, bald-headed posse captured on their first California visit in WE GOT POWER!: Hardcore Punk Scenes from 1980s Southern California, and the thrift-store, soup-kitchen refugees to S.F. photographed with adoring members of Slayer in the audience in MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW: Shots From the Bay Area Thrash Metal Epicenter.

Order But Wait… There’s More! in a variety of formats from Beer City Records, including digital, CD, seven-inch, and this hand-printed limited-edition vinyl twelve-inch.

D.R.I. continues to tour the world tirelessly, cruising speedily around the U.S. for the rest of 2016 before heading to Australia, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico in early 2017.
