Refused is playing two sold out shows at Terminal 5 in April.
By: Andrew Bilach
Good morning, everyone. Refused. New York City. Terminal 5. Two sold out shows in April. Yours truly, attending both.
Their last record, The Shape of Punk to Come, released in 1998, is one of my favorite albums ever. When I think of Refused, and especially when I think of this record, I think of unadulterated innovation. I think of fearlessness. I think of passion. I don’t think of hardcore or punk, but rather the evolution of rock music.
The Shape of Punk to Come is an absolute masterpiece.
I have to admit, rarely, if ever, am I excited for a show these days. I mean excited excited. Fan excited. And it’s an awesome feeling.
Yes, the shows are sold out. But I implore all of you, if there’s any way you can get a ticket, get one.
Consider this a public service announcement.
Below is the track “New Noise” which appears on The Shape of Punk to Come.
