The Howlin’ Souls have released their new single, “Viva La Revolucion (Again),” a straight-up middle finger to “the man” in classic Rock n’ Roll style. “Viva La Revolucion (Again)” is extremely relevant in the current political climate and urges people to pay attention to the world around them.
Produced by Fritz Lang (long-time engineer at CBGB’s, The Record Plant NYC, Sigma NYC), “Viva La Revolucion (Again)” features strong guitar riffs and a pounding bassline that will make you want to get up and make a change. After all, “Viva La Revolucion" means “long live the revolution,” explains frontman Pete Smith. With cries of protest, The Howlin’ Souls make a firm point that they will not be silenced nor will they back down anytime soon. “The song touches on a few subjects that are relevant in America and beyond, including corrupt politicians, corporations influencing policy, people rising up in protest and police brutality. It is happening all over the world,” said Smith. With poignant lyrics such as, “there’s no solution, make no illusion, there’s the sound of a revolution” and “there will be blood,” the band brings these significant issues to the forefront with a protest anthem approach.
