No Warning – “Friends In High Places”

Before he started playing guitar in Fucked Up or releasing records on his own as Young Governor, Ben Cook was the frontman of the beloved Toronto hardcore band No Warning. No Warning are one of the few hardcore bands, in the past couple of decades, who managed to build any real sense of mystique for themselves, so the fact that they’re back is a pretty big deal. The band broke up in 2005, but they’ve played a few reunion shows in the last two years. And now they’ve gone into the studio to record “Friends In High Places,” a one-song flexi-disc that will be out soon. It’s an impressively tough and crunchy piece of music with an awesome grunt-along chorus and a cool psychedelic breakdown. Listen to it below.

Lockin’ Out Records and the clothing label Stussy are releasing “Friends In High Places,” and it’ll be out around the end of the month. Pre-order it here.
