Wednesdays With...Luke?!


Happy Wednesday, fellow animals, and welcome to the latest episode of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly overdose of punk (and punkish!) rock.

This week I have a real treat in store for you. I had the amazing and humbling opportunity to sit down with Luke Pabich, of Good Riddance fame, to talk about his other passion project - Coercion. The on-again-but-mostly-off again band's 2016 release of Exit Wounds capped a 20 year long period of anticipation for Luke, and provided much needed sonic relief. Their recently released Veritas EP takes their hard rock angst, thrashy guitar craft and deeply introspective songwriting to a new level.

Join me as I chat with Luke about Coercion's origin, their incredible decades-long journey that resulted in them finally showing their songs to the world, and learn what's in store next. Oh and you better fucking believe we showcase a lot of the tunes off the new EP.

What are you waiting for...go listen, NOW:



Liner notes:

Here's the web player link to the interview, and the accompanying Spotify playlist

Tracklist

  • 1Veritas by Coercion
  • 2Choices by Coercion
  • 3The Reasoning by Coercion
  • 4Decease and Desist by Coercion
  • 5Suffer by Bad Religion
  • 6Serial Killer by Vio-lence

Editor's note - I did have to edit the interview slightly for brevity's sake. But if you want the full, uncut version of my talk w/ Luke just send me a note @ WednesdaysWithAndrew@gmail.com and I will share the whole enchilada 

OK, this is where you guys come in. Go check out the rest of Coercion's newest EP Veritas, here; if you feel so inclined buy a digital copy, and hit up your local club owners and promoters and demand they bring Coercion to you!  



That's it for this week, folks. Thanks for tuning in, and HUGE shout out to Luke for enlightening us with his punk rock folklore. Until next week...
