In the mid-2000s, P.J. Hearn started working for a government agency. But after attempting to notify his supervisors about shady activity in his department a few months later, he became the target of retaliatory attacks and smear campaigns from his own co-workers. Frustrated, he eventually quit...but did not forget. Instead, he enlisted the help of two friends and founded Leadsucker as a means to vent his rage at those that did him wrong.

Although their debut album, "Burn", doesn't hit shelves until August 28th, the band have released two tracks from that album: "America Doesn't Give a Fuck About You" and "Haute Culture". You can have a listen right here at Stereo Killer (click here for link), or on their Reverbnation page (click here for link). You can also download them for free.

And as always, any kind of feedback is welcome! Yes, any kind.

Just another quick update: Two additional tracks have been added to the Stereokiller page, so see the link above. "Burn" is also available as a pre-order in iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/id675193308), so for those of you that love supporting Apple's quest to take over the world, have at it. It's just $7.99 for 30 tracks, which comes out to just a quarter per track!



The hardcore punk band will also be available on CD for the dwindling numbers that prefer a physical format. Stay tuned for more info as its August 28th release draws nearer!

I think it's safe to say most independent labels don't make a profit off anything. But yes, I'm releasing a CD about government corruption and the failures of American politics and I want people to listen to it if that's what you're asking.

I don't care about your band or message, but I'm pretty sure that this statement is absolutely false.

@planet of the apes: I realize it's really a worldwide issue, but the disc focuses more on America's problems, though I'm sure they're similar to governmental problems that other countries face.

@Jeremy: I'm glad that you didn't care about anything I had to say so much, that you responded to it.

I will say, maybe I shouldn't have said "don't make a profit off anything", but I can assure you that it's rarer than you think. I know a few label owners that need to work full-time jobs to make ends meet, and some are actually fairly well-known musicians (I'm not just talking Joe on the corner block who just started a label out of his parents' basement). Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule (I'm sure XL Recordings is banking, for one), but a lot of them are happy to break even.

Then again, it only makes sense when you think about it considering there are so many musicians and labels, that it's a rather oversaturated market. So for every XL and Matador Records that you hear about, indie labels that are successful, there are bound to be a dozen or so smaller labels that no one has ever heard of trying to make money. Which was the impetus for my original statement.

So to sum up, I'm pretty sure that it is not.

@tony: lol! Is that a large piece of pita bread that black man's pretending to eat? Or just a reversed pizza that's been photoshopped in? Either way, that's hilarious.

Also, don't feel bad you had to look up the meaning of the word. You're probably not the only one.
