Threat… Your heart pounds; you feel edgy, like something huge is about to happen… A mix of hope and fear, like the first step into a war you can’t avoid. Lucky for you, it’s hope that wins out in the debut full-length release from punk rock powerhouse, False Idle. This most recent release is a call-to-arms, an anthem for the unknown in a world in decline. With melodic overtones reminiscent of Rise Against, and a breakneck drive like Anti-Flag, Threat has something for everyone. Borrowing the mastering magic of Jason Livermore of the Blasting Room, this is a punk rock album that shows a much more mature False Idle.
After releasing 2 EP’s, respectively Hymns of Punk Rock Praise, and the I Refuse EP, Threat is a poke in the eyeball of this comfortable, complacent American society. With musical influences as dynamic and unique as the members themselves, False Idle has crafted a collection of songs touching on societal issues like greed, the corruption of politics and media, and even much more personal and poignant issues in family.
