Southern California punk titans Lagwagon have released "Burden of Proof / Reign," their new track in anticipation of their forthcoming album, Hang. Due out October 28 through Fat Wreck, this will be the band's first full-length album since 2005's Resolve.
The track opens as a heartfelt acoustic ballad, but right around the one-minute mark they crank out the punk in true Lagwagon fashion, combining melody with hardcore aggression to create their trademark sound. The group released another song off the new album in September, titled "The Cog In The Machine," which features a heavier, more metal-inspired sensibility. Listen to that track here at Zumic. So, for fans who might be worried Lagwagon have changed their sound, fret not, for the punk is strong with this one.
