Post Typography : Capitalism

Double Dagger – 333


“A stunning swan song.”

333 is the final six-song EP from Baltimore post-punk favorites, Double Dagger. 333 includes fist-pumping punk anthems showing the group at their most volatile and unrestrained, and instrumental tracks that venture into surprisingly beautiful and melodic territories. The instrumentation is clear and bright, but manages to capture the volume and energy of the band’s infamous live performances. “Heretic’s Hymn” marks the band’s first use of religious language, and is directly inspired by the overwhelmingly positive energy the band felt on their last tour. The song celebrates participating in the DIY scene as a spiritual experience and decries the growing encroachment of capitalism on punk as blasphemy.
