Stream Pleasure Leftists’ Clangorous Full-Length ‘The Woods of Heaven’

The reformed hardcore kids release their full-length debut August 21

The Cleveland-born punks in Pleasure Leftists have cleaned up a bit for their debut full-length for Deranged Records. A pair of shorter form releases presented a thunderclapping rendition of post-punk that could’ve only come from a crew of former hardcore kids, but The Woods of Heaven goes full ’80s, using spiraling guitar lines and nervy drum clutter to conjure an anxiety as overwhelming as the genre’s forebears. Listen here in advance of the record’s August 21 release and read SPIN’s recent interview with the band.
