afropunk premiere: austin-based punk rockers blxpltn drop politically charged, anti-militarism headbanger ‘blood on the sand’

September 29, 2016

Our first premiere today comes from AFROPUNK alums BLXPLTN and their insanely listenable, headbanger of a track called ‘Blood On The Sand’. A politically charged, high-energy song wrought with anti-militarism themes that make commentary about the bullshit political climate, the brutality of warfare, and real estate wack-a-doo Donald Trump. “What do we do? Kill, kill, kill, kill!” Typical of what we’ve come to expected from this Austin-based band, BLXPLTN once again exhibits their uncanny ability to make crazy catchy, genre-bending punk music that you’ll wanna listen to on repeat. ‘Blood On The Sand’ was produced by Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr) and Autry Fulbright (Trail of Dead) and released through Wolfshield Records.
