Svetlanas: “Lose Control” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new single by the Svetlanas.

"Lose Control" features the Svetlanas doing what they do best- hard driving, down and dirty punk rock. Lead singer Olga howls like a banshee while the band tears forward in a ragged combination of hardcore and hard rock. The band has drafted bass beast Nick Oliveri into the band and, damn, does he makes his presence felt. Oliveri says, "Olga is the best front wo'Man' I've seen since Lee of Trash Talk and Blag Jesus of The Dwarves!" Check out the new single below, right now!

For many a-punk, school isn't so much the enemy as it is a way to fashion tools to fight the enemy. In order to examine into this divide, Punknews' Mike Musilli spoke to a number of musicians, including members of Have Heart, Colossal, and Grace of God about their own teaching backgrounds.
