illiterates waste no time thrashing to the point with their new single “My Enemy.” In true punk fashion, the track is hard, fast and loud. It bangs with manic drums, fierce guitar riffs and it gets super weird around the 40-second mark. You may feel a bit disoriented for a few hot seconds, but “My Enemy” is quick to inject you back into the rhythm of revolution.
Without a doubt, illiterates’ new song “My Enemy” is call to revolution. It’s a protest song that demands progress and change for the better good of the people and this planet. With the midterm elections coming up, songs like this urge you to wake up and vote for someone who actually gives a fuck.

illiterates will release their debut LP Makeout Mountain, produced by Matt McCalvin (Gringo Star, Zoners, St. Pe), on September 7th via Baby Robot Records. The 12-track album is amanic in its explosive punk-rock nature, but it can also be sweet and silly with its throwback rock ballads (as heard in its doo-wop-esque title track).
If you dig bands like Dead Kennedys, Jay Reatard, MC5, Oh Sees and DEVO — you’ll love illiterates. I know we do.
