Song of the Day: Sanction the Radio, “Catechism”


Out of Atlanta comes Sanction the Radio, a pop punk four-piece with a fiery new single, “Catechism.” The single was recorded with Lee Dyess (Mayday Parade, Against Me, I Set my Friends on Fire) and mastered by Alan Douches (Thrice, Brand New). Jonathan Roach brought the single to life with a dynamic lyric video.

The song seems pretty straightforward but it’s evident that a lot of thought was put into it. Taking the title into consideration, the lyrics question a religious entity. Rather than coming off as whiny, the song comes off as bitter, abused. Figuring out your spirituality is a huge step in someone’s life and this song could resonate as a soundtrack to someone’s religious journey. That said, with vague enough lyrics, “Catechism” could easily be a huge “frick you” song to someone you hate or just a valid reason to mosh in your bedroom.

“Catechism” is aggressive and opinionated. Emotional vocals and pent-up instrumentals add to the greatness of the track, making it a must have in your pop punk library.

This single will make you say “oh my god”:
