    Cherry Blossom Life is the third album from East Anglian hardcore bruisers, THE DOMESTICS. This record sees them drawing evermore on their Japanese, Swedish and USHC influences, integrating them further into their already ferociously defined sound.

    It’s fast, it’s rabidly pissed off, but it’s not just another formula hardcore record. Check some of the lyrical themes here – from philosophical musings on the concept of love (and how it’s sold to us) to the plight of migrants exploited by employers in destination countries; from notions of authenticity in punk, domestic violence, the purging of destructive familial ties and the usual dose of loathing (self and otherwise). And that’s just for starters.

    Cherry Blossom Life is a more musically stripped-down record than its predecessor, Routine & Ritual, now that the band has pared down to a four piece, but this seems only to have focused their rage across these 17 tracks all the more.

    Previously compared to the likes of classic hardcore outfits such as OUT COLD, GAUZE, NEGATIVE APPROACH, RIPCORD, FORWARD, POISON IDEA and BLACK FLAG, alongside more contemporary exponents like GREEN BERET, CAREER SUICIDE and KOWARD, U.S. punk bible, MAXIMUM ROCK ‘N’ ROLL described their last album as “Stellar…if you’re gonna play hardcore don’t fuck around. THE DOMESTICS got the memo…pissed beyond belief”. Stalwart UK punk zine SUSPECT DEVICE described them as “one of the UK’s finest punk bands” whilst New Zealand’s’ SCANNER refers to them as “brutal hardcore…caustic yet intelligent”.

    On tour in mainland Europe 28th August - 7th September 2017. Check band FB page foe details.
