One listen to the whirling 80s dark-punk of “Condolences” by Deep Tissue should be all you need. The Philly-based quintet’s chorus-soaked guitar stabs pair perfectly with borderline-desperate storyteller vocals. It’s gothy, but energetic – especially when the band tears into a near wall-of-sound breakdown at the end of the song.

“Condolences” is on the album Patience or Fear – out now on Play Alone Records. Check it out via Bandcamp below, or, swing by Spotify to stream it there.
