UNITED NATIONS RETURN WITH THE NEXT FOUR YEARS
JULY 15, 2014
The enigmatic supergroup – whose roster has included members of Thursday, Glassjaw, Converge, and Pianos Become The Teeth – have returned with the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled 2008 debut – and their first new recordings since 2010’s highly sought-after “Never Mind The Bombings, Here’s Your Six Figures” 7” on Deathwish Inc. Featuring material recorded between the spring of 1981 and the fall of 2016, The Next Four Years picks up where “Never Mind The Bombings” left off, expanding on their already caustic sound with an even greater sense of urgency and aggression. It’s a furious homage to the pioneers of punk, and a scorching critique on the current state of “punk.” It is the most cathartic music of their mysterious career, and unquestionably some of the most vital heavy music released this year. The jaw-dropping super-deluxe box set has already sold out, but the CD is very much available here and at your local record store, and of course the digital version is available on iTunes, Amazon, etc.
