They’re back and they’re still pissed. Seven years after their first release, Propagandhi are still doing what they do best. Todays Empires, Tomorrows Ashes is loaded with anti-American views and strong political stances, but listeners have to ask themselves how much of this they need to hear.
Propagandhi’s message in Today’s Empires, Tomorrows Ashes may be too little, too late. Their ideas are interesting, as always, but the inclusion of bandwagon rebellion figures like Mumia Abu-Jamal makes me wonder if they believe their own propaganda, or if they are only doing it to be cool. Hopefully, it’s not the latter.
