D.O.A., Canada’s legendary pioneering punks who set the bar high for punk, are ready to rip it up on the occasion of their 40th anniversary. They have a brand new album: Fight Back and they are embarking on a worldwide tour to support this impressive new effort.

The Men of Action are ready to take on all opposition and lay down a punk rock path of wild music and free thought. The Godfather of Hardcore, Joe Keithley (guitar, vocals), leads their rough and ready line up that includes the manic rhythm section of Paddy Duddy (drums) and Corkscrew (bass).

Early reviews are saying that Fight Back is the most innovative D.O.A. album since War on 45. D.O.A. has always been right on the pulse of what is going on in our screwed up world. Fight Back deals with what we have left, which in many ways, is not much. “When you really think about it, income inequality and disparity is at the root of a lot huge problems, like environmental degradation, war, sexism and hate,” says Keithley.

Friends, that’s exactly what D.O.A. has been fighting against for the last 40 years, that’s why Joe has made TALK – ACTION = 0 his lifelong mantra. Fight Back, released on Joe’s own label Sudden Death Records, is a scathing and timely piece. Joe deals with all manner of unseemly low characters and issues.

The album opens with acerbic “You Need an Ass Kickin’ Right Now,” then rips right into the startling “Killer Cops,” then smashes into the anthemic “Time To Fight Back,” which is street punk resistance at its fiercest. D.O.A. rips thru the timely “Gonna Set You Straight” with violent and natural ease, same goes with the vitriolic “I Just Got Back From the USA.” The album takes a D.O.A. funny twist with “We Won’t Drink This Piss” (down with bad corporate beer!) and “You Can’t Stop Me,” where Joe delves into the character of Slapshot playing coach Reggie Dunlop, a natural alter ego perhaps!
