Stream the new MDC / Antidonts split EP! (Punknews Exclusive)

Stream the new MDC / Antidonts split EP! (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is absolutely thrilled to debut the new split EP featuring MDC and The Antidonts!

This split is killer, people. Hardcore legends MDC (using the guise of Millions of Delusional Citizens) kick out a re-cut of the classic "Born to Die." Notably, on the new version, the refrain is modified to "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA!" Frankly, this track is more relevant now than ever. Then, paying tribute to frontman Dave Dictor's folk background, MDC crank out an earnest, reverent version of Johnny Cash's "Big River." How interesting it is, to hear one outlaw legend covering another through an Americana link. Meanwhile, the Antidonts bust out two of their own songs. "Make America Think Again" follows on MDC's lead and attacks Trump through some melodic, energetic punk charging.

The release is out April 1 via Swamp Cabbage records. All proceeds benefit the ACLU, too! Pre-order this Beaut right here and then check it out below!
