VS. The New Split From Money Left To Burn & The Affect Heuristic

‘VS’ is a 10 track stampede featuring 5 exclusive tracks from Nuremberg’s finest skate punkers Money left To Burn and spanking new Melodic Hardcore band, The Affect Heuristic. This release delivers a high-energy aggressive (yet melodic) sound, that fans have come to expect from the Lockjaw Records roster.

‘VS’ is the third offering from Money Left to Burn. This is a fantastic continuation of their progression, from their last release in 2015. The band really drive home their powerful socio-political themed lyrics, with energetic melodic skate-punk.

This is a first release with finesse from The Affect Heuristic, a newly formed faction of punks from Scotland and Belgium, who’s members are recognisable from previous bands. The pained and aggressive screaming vocals coupled with the skate-punk pace, add to the magic of a highly exciting start for the band.

Guitarist, Dave Gourlay, reflects on songwriting with The Affect Heuristic. ”I’m absolutely terrible at writing lyrics, so I try to get whatever I’m feeling across in the music I write (who doesn’t?).  Aside from ‘Who Me?’, which Sean and I wrote together over a decade ago and ‘Uneven’, which was written for a previous band, I really wanted to bring something that captured the usual frustrations shit munchers like myself have while at the same time, not coming across as just another cliched, ‘pissed off’ punk record. I really strive to add something a bit weird in every song I write. The rest of the guys really took my ideas and ran with them. I’m writing the best music of my life with the best guys ever. You really can’t ask for much more than that.”

Catch both bands on tour over EU this summer and at Germany’s finest small DUY festival, KNRD 2018.
