Track Premiere: Taking Meds — ‘Hall Pass’

Posted: by The Editor

Taking Meds are gearing up to release their new EP The Meds You Deserve, the follow-up to their excellent full-length I Hate Me, later this month. Today we’re stoked to be premiering their latest single, the blistering and energetic “Hall Pass,” which is a welcome addition to the bands growing catalog of chaotic punk rippers. The influence of post-hardcore and math rock looms heavily over their sound, but there isn’t anybody else in punk that’s approaching music quite like Taking Meds, and “Hall Pass” is a testament to the their wholly original spirit. The band is currently donating all of the proceeds from their online store, where everything is currently on sale for $5 and any purchase enters you into a raffle to win a test press of their new EP, to The Emergency Release Fund, which aims to collect money to bail out Queer and Trans POC from Rikers Island.
