Today is the release of In The Business from punk juggernaut CPR from Fountain Valley, California. In The Business is a driving seven song album, with classic punk influences from bands such as Black Flag, Dead Boys, and the NY Dolls. CPR is very vocal and supportive of local underground punk rock bands. Before CPR, the band’s singer Jet Wilson had always been active in the music scene; playing music in the 80’s and even witnessing the grunge movement. Through all his rough times, he always counted on music as being an ultimate salvation. Not only does CPR serve as an abbreviation for Christian Punk Rock but also as a strong metaphor: the reinvigoration of life through the power of music. When asked what advice he’d give to aspiring musicians, his response was both inspirational and rebellious: “Don’t write music to please the crowd. Don’t write music that’s already been done before.” “In The Business” demonstrates that CPR is more action than just music.
Raven Faith Records, SkyBurnsBlack Records and Thumper Punk Records have jointly teamed up for the release of “In The Business”. Learn more about the band at: http://www.cprpunkrock.com/
