More relevant than ever before, the classic kings of punk THE ADICTS have returned with astounding intensity on their latest release, ‘And It Was So’. Genuine punk rock has always been based around sending a message, but more importantly it’s about remaining true to your roots, and for decades, THE ADICTS have never tried to become anything but what they truly are; raw, unadulterated punk rock.

Staying true to their personal taste is part of what caught the recent attention of Nuclear Blast/Arising Empire Records. Pete Dee explains: “When it comes to the music, we write what we want to. We’ve never been into the fashion of it all. There are no pressures [right now]. Years ago we were under pressure and none of us wanted to write because of it.” After signing to the label, and with new music ready and waiting to be presented to millions of fans all over the world, THE ADICTS are shifting into the craziness of our modern world and all of its influence.

The new album is very diverse and there’s something on there for everybody; some politics, some tales, and some tongue in cheek digs at the media. In a world saturated with corporate media influence and mass brainwashing THE ADICTS message is just as relevant today as it ever was. Tracks like title track ‘And It Was So’ have a classic, straightforward message such as “we’re here, we’re not going anywhere” and “this is us, and this is what you’ll always get”. The track ‘Talking Shit’ is a classic reflection of going out, getting drunk, talking shit, and pissing off those around you who are easily offended. The album also has some darker tracks such as ‘You’ll Be The Death of Me’ or ‘Picture The Scene’ which talks about the artists of surrealism.

With even more future tunes in the pipeline THE ADICTS aren’t afraid to jump back in when the time is right. Guitarist Pete Dee explains: “We’re writing some good shit. Hopefully the people get off on it because that’s what it boils down to, isn’t it?” With their original line-up still mostly intact, with just a couple of new additions; Pete Dee, Kid Dee, Monkey, and Highko are not slowing down any time soon. “We’re very satisfied as a band; we’re very happy. This is one of our happiest times. We are what we are and the beautiful thing is: the kids like it. There’s a lot of positivity so we’re just going to keep on rocking…. and enjoying it.”
