Charger consists of McGee, Matt Freeman (Rancid, Operation Ivy) singing and playing bass, and Jason Willer (UK Subs, Jello Biafra’s Guantanamo School of Medicine) who drums and sings too.
After months of being locked away writing new songs, the band went into Atomic Garden Studios in Oakland for two weeks to record, Warhorse is the follow-up to the band’s previous releases on Pirates Press Records – their debut self-titled EP and two singles “Watch Your Back” and “Stay Down.”
Formed in 2018, Charger was very much a musical challenge between a few lifers in the punk scene who wanted to push each other to dig deep into their shared roots, influences, and musical passions, to create something truly exciting. The resulting efforts have been fast and in-your-face tunes paying homage to the legends of rock ‘n roll and metal while carving out their own unique style that has fans around the world encapsulated.
The new album Warhorse is now available along with a limited edition 7”. All of this is available on the Pirates Press Records’ webstore.
