The OBGMs’ Vocalist and guitarist Densil McFarlane says, when musing on the track: “Bad advice, wrong choice, fake lovers and friends. ‘Not Again’ is about the lies I tell myself when I look in the mirror. The second single released this summer continues the exploration of internal struggles and self- destruction.”
“Not Again” was produced and mixed by Dave Schiffman (The Bronx, Pup, Rage Against The Machine), who also produced the recently-released, and equally rowdy, cut “Cash.”
The OBGMs are a Black-fronted punk rock band who demand your attention. From their genre-fusing music, to their lyrical creativity, the band’s sound brings a spicy raucousness to the palette of your eardrums. Delicious. On-stage, they control the crowd like the preacher controls the congregation. The sermon’s message is: they are here.
The trio have played lauded festivals worldwide including Afropunk and Riot Fest, piquing interest from bands like Green Day, who recently included the band in their Black Lives Matter playlist, and fellow Canadian outfit Pup while sharing stages with notable artists such as Bad Brains, Pusha T, Anti-Flag, Glassjaw, Thee Oh Sees, and Saul Williams.
