Originally conceived as a frenetic side-project founded by members of Thursday, Glassjaw and Converge, United Nations‘ membership and ideology have evolved into a full-time flagship for incendiary chaos. Their line-up overhauled to include members of acclaimed screamo group Pianos Become The Teeth, United Nations have become a perpetual lightning rod for controversy, confusion, and contempt – in other words, they have become one of the most promising punk bands in North America. Now, the enigmatic supergroup have returned with the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled 2008 debut – and their first new recordings since 2010’s highly sought-after Never Mind The Bombings, Here’s Your Six Figures 7″ on Deathwish Inc.
