Ever watched a violent, sweating, bleeding screaming crowd at a hot and vicious punk show, part ways to let someone walk stoically to the front of the venue? That's what happens when White Lung takes the stage. Lead singer Mish Way (disclaimer: also part of the HRTY Crew) is Moses and the dirty fans are her red sea. Recently heralded as "the best punk band in Canada," though we would like to go with THE WORLD, White Lung is a Vancouver-based foursome who appear to survive on cheap beer, obscenity, and aggression alone.

"Take The Mirror" is the first single off their newly released album Sorry and it's a neck-snapping fist to the face. Kenneth William's hardcore thrashing gets into a death match with Anne-Marie Vasillou's lightning speed drumsticks. Mish Way sings with Courtney Love's fury but thinks with the sarcastic and critical mind of Tracie Egan Morrissey. Grady Mackintosh plugs away on her measured and grounding bass without a glimmer of mercy in her eyes. The whole group is essentially stone cold when they put on their White Lung faces--for the better.

Their new album Sorry is out on Deranged Records. Watch the video for "Take The Mirror" below.
