We are very happy to announce that Amsterdam Recording Company will be releasing The Local Spastics new self titled album coming April! The album was recorded at Amsterdam Recording Company by Igor Wouters.
The Local Spastics are a young punk rock band that started around 2010. After a first demo that takes you back to the sound of seventies punk and reminds you of bands like The Dead Boys, The stooges and FEAR, the trio quickly built up quite a reputation with their aggressive live shows, politically incorrect behaviour and sarcastic lyrics.
With the new record coming up, the Local Spastics are back with a more mature sound and are ready to wreck and roll once again. You better get ready for a spastic attack!
