NYC's Hatrabbits make their debut on Rad Girlfriend Records with a whopping 32 song double LP called "Cognitive Dissidents". Politics, personality and punk rock collide thanks to Fid Fidler, best known for his work in The Measure [sa] and Pity Party. Touching on everything from the current state of the world and problematic pasts of our culture to our place in the universe, "Cognitive Dissidents" delivers a one-two punch to the gut with poignant and smart lyrics that contemplate the meaning of life and futility of existence but don't get lost in sarcasm or existentialism. Fid is a man something to say and he has a band with a plan. Buzzsaw guitars rip through each track adding a unique sonic quality to the record. Mike Yannich (The Ergs, Worriers) takes his position behind the drums and a slew of other notable guest musicians round out the line up. Short bursts of chaotic energy, classic song structures and outstanding musicianship all add to the excellence of this melodic punk masterpiece. It comes with a 34 page lyric book inside a beautiful full-color gate-fold jacket. Art by Lauren Denitzio (Worriers, The Measure [sa]). This album has texture and complexity and plays out in your head like a movie. Think Brainiac meets Ray Bradbury.
