A new review has been posted online for D.O.A.'s newest cd "We Come In Peace"
"Classic. Essential. Legendary. All good - and accurate - ways to describe D.O.A. Dig this new album on their own Sudden Death Records, reviewed by The Impaler below for Mass Movement 34, a work in progress. Come on… give punk a chance.
We Come In Peace' is as much a declaration of D.O.A.'s mission on this, the band's 14th studio album of all-new material, as it is a way to identify this collection of songs by serving as the album's title. Always a fiercely political band, D.O.A. have upped the ante here by jumping headfirst into the fray of the messy and chaotic shit-storm that is today's less-than-stable worldwide political environment, tackling the financial crisis, the Occupy movement, shady dealings by top officials, systemic bigotry, and other important issues – both those that have been ripped from the headlines and those that have been culled from buried stories and the underground press."

"D.O.A- We Come In Peace
When it comes to hardcore, few bands have stood the test of time as well as D.O.A have. They've managed to remain politically relevant in an age where other bands have lost their edge and their venom. It would not be a D.O.A album if it were not a narrative on the current affairs in the world. "He's Got A Gun" throws a catchy, old-school vibe to back up lyrics that concern school shootings"

|D.O.A. - WE OCCUPY 7”single Limited Edition of 1000 - Available April 20th|
We Occupy is the first single from D.O.A.'s new studio album We Come In Peace. The godfathers of hardcore have teamed up with their pal JELLO BIAFRA, to produce an anthem for our age. We Occupy, perhaps surprisingly to the uninitiated, is an upbeat ska based tune, with plenty of D.O.A. rock guitar to power it along. But it's the lyrics that really make it shake. Punk pioneer JOE SHITHEAD KEITHLEY, a big backer of OCCUPY WALL STREET, tells it like it is, we're getting ripped off by the greedy and powerful. Joe asked his long time friend, the incomparable JELLO BIAFRA to sing on the song. JELLO, no stranger to taking on pompous asses and authority quickly agreed. The combo is powerful and timely.
The B side is Who The Hell Do You Think You Are, JOE wrote the music for this at the behest of playwright MICHAEL SCHOLAR, who's play Hardcore Logo: Live is an adaptation of MICHAEL TURNER'S underground classic book Hardcore Logo ( also a film by BRUCE MCDONALD). JOE took the lyrics in TURNER'S book about a fictional punk rock band and came up with a great song. Who The Hell Do You Think Are is an instant punk rock, beery, sing-a-long. This b side will not be included on We Come In Peace.
Joe Shithead's new book "Talk-Action=0" an illustrated history of D.O.A. will be released on June 1st, 2011. Make sure to visit www.suddendeath.com to order the book along with the new re-issues of Hardcore '81 and Something Better Change starting in 3 weeks!

D.O.A. - “Smash The State. The Raw Original D.O.A. 1978-81” DVD Review
DVDs tend to bore me shitless, but this release is a welcome change as it kept me interested. This is not some super-sleek Pink Floyd type film! Much of the footage is extremely raw as it is taken from numerous performances during a time when filming shows was not of today’s quality. Many of the songs have a bootleg type of feel, but this actually adds to the feeling as it is as though you are back in 1979. All your early D.O.A. hardcore favorites are here: “America The Beautiful”, “World War 3”, “New Age”, “Disco Sucks” as well as improvised tunes like “Strat Man”. There is a great bonus scene of the band miming in the studio to “World War 3” for some TV show, maybe it was not meant to be funny but it kinda turned out that way. Joe’s voice is as rough as ever and the songs are still relevant to this day. “Smash The State. The Raw Original D.O.A. 1978-81” DVD is an excellent reminder of how things were for these Canadian punk rockers. Amazingly they are one of the few bands that are as good today as they were when they started. Long live D.O.A. (www.suddendeath.com )
