Broken Player: Misanthropocentric, A.K.A. Droid's Blood

Misanthropocentric AKA Droid's Blood cover art
North Carolina indie label Sorry State Records has released the new album from Broken Player titled, Misanthropocentric, A.K.A. Droid's Blood. The Chicago based, genre bending punk band's latest combines full-bore hardcore, jittery synth-punk, and a dark pop sensibility into a blend that, while not exactly seamless, is nothing if not distinctive. Stylistically, Misanthropocentric continues along the lines of the band's first LP but pushes at the boundaries of the band’s sound, making the hard parts harder, the noisy parts noisier, and the catchy parts even catchier. Through the din Scott Plant’s brilliant lyrics remain the centerpiece. Stream and buy Misanthropocentric, A.K.A. Droid's Blood at the link below.
