Milwaukee pop-punks Direct Hit! have re-recorded a bunch of old songs with their current line-up and today we're streaming the new version of "Werewolf Shame" in the replies. If you want to compare the two we actually also premiered the music video for the original version way back in 2010. If you like what you hear Red Scare Industries is releasing More Of The Same (Satanic Singles 2010-2014) digitally on August 14th and physically on August 21st. Pre-orders are also available. We've been digging this band for awhile and we're sure that you will too.
