San Francisco Bay area band Culture Abuse are a wild pack of animals that have been stirring things up along the West Coast since Fall 2013. Their amalgamation of hardcore / punk with an almost psychedelic rock vibe is unlike anything ever heard before, feeling both vitally important and on the brink of disaster all at once.

Following the digital release of their debut EP, The Day Dreams of Nothing, 6131 Records quickly jumped at the chance to work with this incredible band. In Fall 2014, Culture Abuse recorded three new songs, two for this single (teasing an album to come later in 2015) and one included on a 12″ vinyl reissue of their debut. The songs on this Spray Paint The Dog 7″, “Nicotine” and “Perfect Light”, demonstrate their ever-evolving style, moving deeper into a pop-driven aesthetic. Culture Abuse are channeling the drugged-out, melodic sounds the Bay Area delivered in the late ’60s, yet are still remarkably refreshing.
