Industrial punk-trio Anwar Sadat has to shared their latest EP release Obedience in its entirety courtesy of Brooklyn Vegan. Available this week on Sick Room Records, the four-song recoding marks new territory for the band focusing on slower tempos that rely on a groove, rather than lightning-fast punk aggression, as heard in their previous releases.
“Our writing process is a very intensive and stringent one,” explains guitarist Clay Farris. “We come up with everything together and behave as a filter for one another’s ideas. So, there’s a lot of ‘no, no, no.’ 90 percent of what we come up with is thrown away. Obedience is what we didn’t throw away during that period of our existence. The lyrical content of the record ranges from the current state of American politics, to the human condition in general.”
Additionally, the band will be rounding out the year on a full-scale tour. See below for the complete list of dates.
