I have been so excited for this review!  I thought it would write itself. Now, here I am worried I can’t do the latest release, Three Cord Cliche, justice.  What if I can’t convey that The Hacks aren’t Pop Punk, Oi, or Skate Punk, yet they are uniquely all three? Surely, I couldn’t, with my writing tell you the reader that you will want to sing along with the entire album.  This three piece puts out so much sound.

As a band, they have been so rad to me as a Colorado Punk Rock Army admin, that I wouldn’t want to let them down. Go listen to them! Better yet, go see them. They won’t disappoint, and by the end you’ll see why I found it hard to make these guys sound as good as this album with just a review.  

The Hacks will Be playing The Colorado Punk Rock Army’s Happy Skanksgiving show on November 24th, 2018.  Show starts at 7pm at Tennyson’s Tap in Denver.
