    Time Is Gold is preceded by three 7” releases and continues the band’s practice of weaving chaotic rock arrangements around each song’s folk core.

    This first full-length album includes a few songs from the vinyl singles as well as new material with varying subject matter. “Truman” traces the history of the modern presidency while “St. Francis of Illinois” pays tribute to Vachel Lindsay, considered by many to
    be the father of modern performance poetry.

if they didn't surpress us, we wouldn't have to speak up
if they didn't attack us, we wouldn't have to fight back
if our rights weren't violated there'd be no reason to rebel
this land is not free, only for fools
I don't recognize your law
I don't find you honorable
I despise you, hang me for it

The system is brutal and so are its thugs
they only know force, they only know violence
this land is not free, only for fools
why waste words, like carrying water to the sea
learn to use explosives and set yourself free


from Time Is Gold, released July 28, 2012
