Bruise Control have released their second single from the upcoming debut ‘Useless for Something’. Dead on Arrival shows a more jagged edge to the bands sound. With a bouncing lead guitar riff and syncopated drums, the song is reminiscent of 00’s Dance Punk and Indie Rock, while still holding the bands signature aggression and attitude at the forefront. The song tackles the topic of emotional burn-out with the lyrics show a more vulnerable side to the band. A sentiment addressed through Jim Taylor’s growling lead vocals and a call-and response chorus.

Dead On Arrival is streaming everywhere. Check it out. The video is Filmed, Produced & Edited by Phil Dalton, well worth checking out.

Sitting somewhere between 00’s indie and 80’s hardcore, Manchester-based loudmouths Bruise Control have carved themselves an unlikely name in DIY punk. In their wake they’ve left a handful of self-produced releases and a notoriety for chaotic live shows. In true DIY fashion, the album has been mixed and produced by the band’s guitarist Niall Griffin keeping the core sound as true as possible.

‘Useless For Something’ is available on vinyl (both transparent and transparent red variants), CD and tape. The first 50 orders will also get an exclusive photo print with the album. Pick up a copy here –
