Virginia rocker Mike Frazier will be releasing his sophomore EP, titled Complete Control, on October 21 through Geneva Records. We have the honor today of streaming the effort’s lead single, a rollicking, three-and-a-half-minute romp of political punk rock that’s equal parts rambunctious and melodic. Bringing together sounds reminiscent of both Green Day and Frank Turner, Frazier has mastered a formula so infectious you’ll be driving yourself mad waiting an entire month for Complete Control to arrive. If “F-35” is any indication of what to expect from the whole of his new EP, Frazier is sure to be the next big name in punk. Get an early taste below.

“Sometimes when writing a song, there is this rare chance that the melody and riff just come to you, and you instantly know what the song is going to be about,” Frazier tells Substream when asked about his newest single. “‘F-35’ was one of those songs. I wanted to question our military industrial complex and propose the idea that we should start taking a closer look at where the money is being spent and who’s really benefiting. Many in this country have a vapid acceptance of government military spending. Companies like Lockheed Martin are being paid billions of dollars to create war machines while families around the world are suffering. It’s time our government stops investing in the interests of these corporations and starts investing in us.”

Frazier’s new EP, Complete Control, is available to pre-order through Geneva Records.
