If we can learn one thing from Final Conflict, it’s that songs about cops being assholes will never get old. Case in point: their song “Abolish Police” off of 1988’s Ashes To Ashes hasn’t aged a day. Sure, punx will only fight the police on Twitter nowadays and maybe some of them even grew up to become cops themselves. But still, the police state-smashing sentiment still rings true.

Ashes To Ashes was originally released in way back in the 80s before Relapse Records dusted it off in 1994 to give it a re-release. Now Tankcrimes is bringing it back to life and releasing the album next month. And guess what. It’ll probably get re-issued again in another 20 years because this record doesn’t seem to age—except maybe for that picture of Ronald Reagan on the cover. But that sick, Discharge-y style of punk never goes out of style.

Listen to a track below and remember how great this album is. The re-issue will come with a 24-page booklet with old photos, flyers, and interviews. Pre-order it here.
