San Francisco’s Coercion 96 are back after a hiatus of twenty years. Featuring members of Good Riddance, Papa Roach, The Lonely Kings and Fury 66 – they’re soon releasing a quite stunning EP called “Exit Wounds” which we were lucky enough to check out in advance. Comprising a heavy rock sound with punk ethics, the EP will be out on Bird Attack Records. We were able to throw a few questions to guitarist Luke Pabich, you can check the interview out online now (or wait for the printed version which will run in issue 40.
