SLCene Suggests: 7 Seconds at Club Sound

by on July 22, 2014


7 SECONDS, CLUB SOUND, Wednesday, July 23, 6 p.m., $15

When I mentioned to a friend the other day that old-school Reno punk outfit 7 Seconds was dropping by Salt Lake City on a new tour, he was genuinely shocked the quartet was still out there firing up pits in dive bars and clubs a full 34 years after they originally formed in 1980. The group led by brothers Kevin Seconds and Steve Youth recently released their first album since 2005, and Leave a Light On blends the bands hyperactive punk tendencies with the big poppy choruses that always marked the band’s tunes. In many ways, the new tunes fall musically somewhere between the 7 Seconds ’80s-era albums that made me and so many other punk youngsters into fans, Walk Together, Rock Together and Soulforce Revolution–that one actually charted on the Billboard 200. The new album is their 15th, and this is their first tour since 2006–might want to catch them while you can. The Copyrights open the show.
