The punk supergroup Transplants turn up the aggression on In a Warzone, packing their upcoming third album with fast, ferocious cuts and a few changes of pace. Rancid's Tim Armstrong, Blink-182's Travis Barker and Death March's "Skinhead Rob" Aston catch their breath on pop anthems ("Come Around"), jam on rap and blues-rock ("Something's Different") and mess with drum-and-bass in more hip-hop exploration ("It's a Problem"). However, Transplants mainly deliver agitated, combative punk tracks that quickly needle in and spit back sneering defiance ("War Zone," "Silence," "Completely Detached," "Exit the Wasteland").
In a Warzone will be available June 25th. Transplants are touring the East Coast this month, with their next show set for tonight at the House of Blues in Boston.
