Sung from the gut and straight from the heart, Florida-based punk outfit KID YOU NOT answers the recent release of their full-length Deep Elm debut with an intoxicating, invigorating, raucous return featuring six brand new songs and six fresh recordings of the band's classic anthems. From the moment Home Again takes off, it's purity, purpose and DIY spirit are palpable. Combining new school and old school influences (ranging from Iron Chic, Latterman and Red City Radio to 90’s punk rock heroes Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and Millencolin) with an exciting new sensibility, the album never lets up with its wrath of gruff vocals, melodic harmonies, pounding drums and infectious choruses. This is an album about our divisive social and political climate, the frustration and discontentment inherent in pursuit of the American Dream and the challenge of maintaining the valuable friendships we cherish to help us make it through another day. It's the kind of record Deep Elm was founded upon, where you turn up the volume, sing along at the top of your lungs and throw your fists in the air. Undeniably infectious and highly relatable.

well i can start by saying. it's been running through my head. was it a moment of weakness. were we meant for more than this. we spill our blood, pour our sweat, still everything just turns to shit. we're selling off our lives. and running out of time. "no gods, no masters". just an endless trail of disaster. the patron saints of a losing streak. unloved, just bastards. we've got questions, but don't want the answers. we're in too deep. but we still don't know what it means. i've got a constant feeling. that it's all been meaningless. and we keep on repeating. every motion that lead to this. but now it doesn't matter. what's been said. you see who's hands are fucking red. but we settle for losing sleep. and fighting fire with kerosene. "no gods, no masters". just an endless trail of disaster. the patron saints of a losing streak. unloved, just bastards. we've got questions, but don't want the answers. we're in too deep. but we still don't know what it means. we've spent all this time. running in circles. stuck in this cycle. with no means to escape. "no gods, no masters". just an endless trail of disaster. the patron saints of a losing streak. unloved, just bastards. we've got questions, but don't want the answers. we're in too deep. but now we know that we've only ourselves to blame
