Remember Boston punk veterans The Explosion? We sure do and they are sorely missed. Thankfully, vocalist Matt Hock and guitarist David Walsh are now back at it in their new band Space Cadet. Debut album 'Lion on A Leash' won't be out until March 26 via Wiretap Records, but you can already check out the band's debut single, 'Forever For A While', which Brooklyn Vegan described as sounding like 'a cross between Husker Du's jangly side and early, shoegazy Britpop. It's a catchy, nostalgia-inducing song'.
Space Cadet recorded their album earlier this year with The Bouncing Souls' Pete Steinkopf producing, and it features Brian Baker (Bad Religion, Dag Nasty, Minor Threat, etc), drums by David's Loved Ones bandmate Mike Sneeringer and bass by Matt Olsson (Dave Hause, Frank Iero, Brian Fallon) and The Explosion/The Loved Ones' Chris Gonzalez.
The single hits streaming services on Friday (12/11) and you can pre-save it now.
