Sit back, take a deep breath, and prepare yourself for the huge trip Direct Hit has in store for you. This Milwaukee-based group has labored intensely over the last year, crafting their debut FAT full-length, Wasted Mind, out June 24th. Inspired by the savage and warped sensibilities of Burroughs’ Naked Lunch and Thompson’s Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, this 12-track concept album will take you on a sonic rollercoaster, reminiscent of a more concise and pointed version of Green Day’s American Idiot. Produced by All-American Rejects guitarist Mike Kennerty, the album follows a cast of drug-addled, medicated and unpredictable characters who check in and out of reality with reckless abandon. Singer/Guitarist/Lyricist Nick Woods says “The record is less about chemical abilities and handicaps and more about identity, consciousness and relativity.” Curious? Well, what are you waiting for? Listen to “Forced to Sleep” right now, on our YouTube channel.
