It’s been two long years since Israel's Not On Tour released 'Growing Pains,' a collection of fast and short melodic punk rock songs that stood out thanks to Sima Brami's powerful vocals. The good news? They are back with a new 7” that comes with 3 B-sides that didn’t make the album. The bad news? It’s just 3 songs.

Luckily, there’s a lot of good to be said for these songs. We recently premiered opener ‘Desperation Street,’ a short yet surprisingly complete cut that’s as furious as it is melodic. It’s a formula that works wonders for them and one they have down pat. I mean, they don’t even need real lyrics to make a song stand out. The lyrics in‘GMSN’are pretty much just the band members’ first names being sung over and over and it makes for a ridiculously catchy song. Next up is ‘What Future,’ another track that is so concise it makes you wonder why other bands need longer songs to get their point across.

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.
