Big news from Music City's most devoted punk rock purist and his crew of unseemly rock 'n' rollers: Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders — who recently expanded to a five-piece lineup — will release their sophomore LP, Mutability, on Sept. 2 via Southpaw Records. As we previously mentioned, local rock blog/record label Nashville's Dead will celebrate its fourth anniversary with the legendary Oblivians at Exit/In on Sept. 2, and that will also serve as Cy & Co.'s album release. Well, the boys now have an album teaser (see that above), not to mention a brand-new, blazin' track by the name of "Axeman" (hear that below).
In the past, I've compared Barkley and the Outs to "first-generation punk and Oi! artists like Cock Sparrer and hardcore punkers like Agnostic Front and, of course, Black Flag." Throw a little bit of Wire in there, and you've got "Axeman." Pre-order Mutability here, and check out that rad album art after the jump.
