Dayton, Ohio punks The Raging Nathans are set to release their fifth album, ‘Still Spitting Blood,’ on November 21 via Rad Girlfriend Records (pre-order) with an exclusive color vinyl release in the UK through Brassneck Records (pre-order). It was recorded by The Copyrights' Luke McNeil, and it offers up 10 songs in roughly 20 minutes. Today, we share the album’s third single, ’Doubt’. Clocking in at just over 2 minutes, ‘Doubt’ is a solid slice of melodic pop-punk that will be stuck in your head after just one listen.
"The thing that I respect about the songs that we write is that the lyrics are always honest,” says Josh Goldman. “I don't know if they are relatable to other people, but I do know that when I read back or listen to the lyrics, I never feel like they are corny or trying to be something they aren't. Sometimes it can be embarrassing for me to hear because of how blunt it can be , but that's when I know that I was at least honest with myself. I feel like listening to one of our songs is almost like what having a conversation with me or Nick is like. I like the opening riff and the little guitar parts through out the song. I'm happy with how it turned out. I asked my friend Jason Lubrano from Iron Chic to do the cover for this one and I think the art reflects the song pretty accurately."
Formed in 2009, the Raging Nathans have become known for their prolific recorded output and tight live performances. Over the last decade, the Nathans have released four LPs, a score of EPs and split 7"s, two singles collections and are about to embark on an ambitious new plan to release a new song every two weeks, culminating in the release of their newest LP Still Spitting Blood.
Following in the footsteps of their predecessors, but always blazing their own path, the evolution of the band is on constant display on every release, always looking forward while never forgetting their roots. From high-speed hardcore to complex guitar driven jams, the Raging Nathans always put the punk before the pop and have unapologetically cemented themselves as one of the most hardworking DIY bands of their era.
