Batavia post grunge disciples Sons of Luther are back with a lacerating slice of political protest rock right in time for Election Day called “Isolationism” and it takes no prisoners. Recorded in secret at a post industrial location under the strictest safety procedures in October, “Isolationism” finds Sons mastermind Wren Werner pondering America’s fraught political climate amidst a global pandemic fragmenting our society and minds susceptible to conspiracy theories and fringe thinking… and laying down some serious riffs to back it up. The very 80’s, analog VHS video clip for “Isolationism” directed by Adam Burnett is psychedelic and also right on schedule because our linear conception of time itself has been rendered meaningless by Quarantine 2020-2021.

What’s not meaningless is Werner’s commendable pledge to donate any Sons of Luther revenue generated during our annus horribilis of 2020 to the NIVA (National Independent Venue Association) Save Our Stages, and the Equal Justice Initiative.
