UK’s cutest girl fronting a streetpunk band is back! Liz and the rest of Deadline have just dropped “We’re Taking Over”… not a complete new album but it does boast four new songs along with a live show.

The new songs are what we’ve come to expect from Deadline… solid punkrock tunes that are extremely melodic. “We’re Not Americans” is a bit of an odd one out seeing as it could’ve been on a Dance Hall Crashers album but it’s still pretty good.

The live show was recorded in Lichtenfeld Stadthalle in the summer of 2007. No overdubs, no auto-tuning and all the little mistakes… that’s what you get. It sounds a lot rawer and faster than on the band’s albums and while there are some awkward off-key moments, it’s still a pretty good show that has a bit of everything from all of the band’s releases. Which makes it interesting for new fans, while the new songs will spark the interest of longtime fans.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
