In Canada's glorious punk history, few embodied the greatness of the 1978-82 era like THE SUBHUMANS (not to be confused with the UK SUBHUMANS). This titan of Vancouver punk engaged with the burgeoning worldwide movement and shared stages with BLACK FLAG, DEAD KENNEDYS and BAD BRAINS. They also lived by their ideology, with Gerry Hannah's involvement in Direct Action protests in the 1980s. New Dark Age Parade, unleashes 14 new songs, the first written by original members Mike Graham, Brian Goble and Gerry Hannah since 1982! Joined by drummer Jon Card (SNFU/DOA), the new songs are every bit as dynamic, powerful and poignant as the band's beloved early material. They rock out with seething intelligence and soulfulness. The sound is both classic and unique; BIAFRA says "you can tell who it is right away," and these guys have been around too long to bother imitating anyone else! Rather than rehashing the past, SUBHUMANS forge ahead with compelling vitality.
