Following a well-received demo and promo tape, Boston's Firewalker caused a stir with their furious take on 80s hardcore that took the spirit of Revelation Records' The Way It Is comp and ripped it through the shredding, death metal-like vocals of Sophie Hendry. It was a wild and brutal approach and tracks like "Sicker Than You" and "Don't Cross Me" sounded like both panic and euphoria.

Pop Wig have just released that demo and a new self-titled EP onto a single 12" and the band will soon be going on a run of US east coast shows. Check the dates and listen to the album below.
