Seminal Southern California punk rock band CH3 have announced the August 18th release of 'Put 'Em Up', their first complete album of news songs in over 15 years.
With 'Put 'Em Up', CH3 has delivered a career-defining album. Written and recorded in the wary post-election days of 2017, the collection of 10 songs are connected as a tightly focused novella, a
‘concept album’ by nature of the timeframe and frame of mind that it was recorded in.
A timely and urgent commentary on current events, with lyrics inspired by the clean, visceral, and cinematic writings of Jim Harrison ("Legends Of The Fall"), some of the songs reference back to the band's earlier political works such as "Manzanar", as those concerns seem more relevant than ever.
Other songs deal with the politics of the heart and themes that have become a trademark of the bittersweet CH3 songbook.
The music remains refined punk with traces of classic '77 Brit to 80's hardcore, power pop rock, which combined, make up the CH3 sound.
'Put 'Em Up' was produced by Jay Lansford (Agent Orange) and features artwork by esteemed artist Lucky Nakazawa. The album will be released via all digital retailers and on vinyl through TKO Records.
