Talk Show Host – I Hate Men (I Hate All Men)

"I Hate Men (I Really Hate Men)" is the latest single from Toronto’s commercially adept punk trio and it's not meant to be ironic. Content aside, this team packs a wallop with a Green Day-like anthem tailored like a bespoke suit for today’s wrenching twist into modern times and gender parity.

Talk Show Host – “I Hate Men (I Hate All Men)” (BandCamp): The latest single from Toronto’s commercially adept punk trio is not meant to be ironic and if so not it sure packs a wallop as a kind of Green Day-like anthem tailored like a bespoke suit for today’s wrenching twist into modern times and gender parity.


Included in the band’s five-song EP (digital and CD), Not Here To Make Friends, the lads have earned scads of enthusiastic reviews for their two earlier releases that combine artful songwriting, a rhythm section that would do Cream justice and a lead-guitarist who screams and pirouettes like he’s a Top Gun at the controls of an F-18 Super Hornet. Make no mistake, this is a band that punches high above its weight and is undoubtedly poised to be snatched from minor celebrity status.

No show dates on the horizon but the band crunched its way across Europe last year, earning flicked Bics at outdoor events such as Germany’s Skate Punk Trash Fest.
