Song Of The Week: 1/8/17
Album: "An Anatomical Guide"
Place Of Origin: Sydney, Australia
Years Active: 2006 - present
WHAT I THINK THE SONG IS ABOUT:
"Machocide" is a song that appears to show the vocalist's disdain for some men who think their masculinity is some sort of privilege or right to disrespect women and/or gays. There are certain types of men out there, misogynists and homophobes, that see fit to disrespect, intimidate and bully women or gays and the vocalist feels that the only good place for these type of idiots is being dead!!

CURRENT STATUS OF LUNGS:
Lungs formed as a band back in 2006, hailing from Australia. Early on this punk rock trio forged a relationship with Aussie record label, Poison City Records and have released three full length albums and one EP through that very label. The band's debut album was 2006's "Breathe, Bastard, Breathe" in 2006. Their most recent release was in 2010, "The Two Chief World Systems". Though the band has not released any new material as of 2010, I'm not so sure that they have officially broken up or not. Their Facebook page still posts quite frequently though I haven't seen any official break up statement so who knows? Lungs is a hard band to label genre wise. Yeah, you can just call them a punk band, but they mix elements of skate punk, thrash, post-hardcore rock, melodic punk, technical punk and some pop punk. When I first listened to the band, the first similarity that popped up to me was Face To Face. But you can also see, that they have some similarities with other bands such as A Wilhelm Scream, Asado, Laughing In The Face Of and DC Fallout. Lungs is a pretty solid band even though they do tend to bounce around from style to style. There's not a whole lot of information about them here in the States besides their Facebook page. But, like I said earlier, they haven't released any music since 2010 and there is no word if they intend to release anything in the future.
