Extinction A.D. Release New Covers EP “It’s About Time That We Had A Change”

Extinction A.D. have released a new covers EP titled “It’s About Time That We Had A Change” via Bandcamp. That effort features the band’s takes on Dead Kennedys’ “When Ya Get Drafted,” TSOL’s “Superficial Love,” D.R.I.’s “Reaganomics,” Adolescents’ “Who Is Who,” and Youth Brigade’s “It’s About Time That We Had A Change.” Rick Jimenez commented:

“Early 80’s American hardcore is one of, if not my favorite era of music. I’ve always wanted to pay homage to it. Doing it through the lens of Extinction A.D. was not just a lot of fun, but put focus on how much things haven’t changed since the Reagan era of the united states.”
