After years of silence, California punks Western Addiction are returning with Pines, their first release since their lone full-length album, 2005’s Cognicide. Recorded at Oakland’s Sharkbite Studios and produced by American Steel’s Ryan Massey, the upcoming 7-inch contains three songs, including the razor-sharp “God Says No.” 

Singer-guitarist Jason Hall shared a cryptic statement about the track: “I have bursts of intense interest in a particular subject and this song is about one of my odd obsessions that will be around for life. I won’t reveal the subject matter because I like when people interpret a song for themselves. For example, we have a song about cats and blood poisoning and people think it’s about being attacked by a person. Here’s a hint though, George Harrison used to do this at night, and it’s weird, powerful, beautiful and awesome. Enjoy?”
