“I’m excited to finally release the NØISE “State Violence State Control” 7” which features covers of two songs that represent our band’s resistance to the attitudes and policies of the current administration. We are proud of how we maintained the spirit of Discharge’s song “State Violence State Control” and Bob Marley’s song “Get Up Stand Up” but also reinterpreted the songs through our own stylistic sensibility. Working on the art for this 7” was a therapeutic way for me to address the current political situation and abuses of power while also nodding to the punk and hardcore music and art that sparked my interest in politics as a teen. I’d like to see more outspoken art and music in response to the state of the nation. If you aren’t already familiar with my band NØISE, comprised of veteran musicians Merritt Lear, John Goff, and Joe Cassidy, visit NoiseProject.com to either download or shop our 12” record featuring songs “Little Lions” and “Automatic.” – Shepard Fairey
