    It’s distressingly rare to listen to guitar rock without irony — rarer
    still when a harmonica is periodically involved. So you can
    imagine how it might take a room by surprise, to find themselves
    honestly pumping their legs in unison to a two-piece rock band
    that has more in common with The Who than the White Stripes.

    Every time you see Drilling for Blasting — and we really hope
    that you will — there’s that whisper in the back of the room,
    sometimes a yell, asking “What the fuck is this?” It’s … fun, and a
    little bit electric, kinda dirty and definitely driving rock and roll. It’s
    Douglas Ward on guitar and harmonica, Kammy Lee on drums
    and both trading vocals. It’s the reason you fell in love with music
    in the first place, and it’s such a relief to be reminded of that.

    We’ve put out a lot of records, and while we love every one,
    they’re not for everyone. This is. It comes out of punk rock,
    but it also comes out of the blues, and what you hear when
    you listen to it seems to be something like a Rorschach
    test — it blurs on the edges but always hits you in the gut.

    We know what it’s like to hear Drilling for Blasting for the first time,
    and there’s such a joy in it we’re almost jealous you get to now.
    One word from experience: when you catch yourself enthusiastically
    shouting out the praises of hickory, it’s okay to crack a smile.
