M.O.D. have release their new album "Busted, Broke & American," via Megaforce Records. This is their first album since 2007's "Red White and Screwed" and the reaction has been exactly what you would expect for an M.O.D. release.
Billy Milano will host an album release party tomorrow July 8th at Bull McCabe's Irish Pub in Austin, TX. Billy will be spinning the new album, there will be live bands and of course the spoken word and comedy of Billy Milano.
As to be expected, Busted, Broke & Americanis fast, it's furious, and it makes no apologies. It also mixes hardcore, punk rock, and thrash and the end result is a thoroughly combustible collection of songs. The words "I'm sorry" are not a part of the album's vocabulary. At the center of the sonic storm remains Milano, who has never been known to shy away from speaking his mind.
