This Close to Vertigo

The new album from The Downstrokes. Ten high energy rockers with traces of the Ramones, The Replacements, Thin Lizzy, and D Generation in their DNA. Mastered by legendary punk producer (The Queers, Screeching Weasel) Mass Giorgini, This Close To Vertigo  continues the band's development and growth. The first album to feature drummer Kyle Wagoner joining LaFemina, Summerfield, and Wood, the album  starts with a barrage of drums on "Kaput," looks at the lives of "Go Nowhere Kids," rips like a tornado through "Downtown Queen City," and takes us on a ride in "A Flying Metal Deathtrap."

The first single is a fresh recording of "UFO Baby" with a video by PJ. Sykes.

This Close to Vertigo  was made possible in part by a grant from the Maryland States Arts Council and features cover art by Bill Dunlap.
