Leaders may be best known for an unfortunate fish stabbing in '09, where singer Donald Fite impaled his girlfriend's pet fish after a fight, telling the authorities, "If she can't have me, then she can't have the fish." It's a shame because Leaders are damn good at what they do, and are well received in other parts of the country (and internationally) for being an unforgiving, hard-hitting rock and roll outfit. Their latest release is the inaugural 7-inch from French imprint Import/Export Records and features "State of Shock," a track that crescendos in a fury of fuzzed and frayed guitar, demented keys, back-breaking drum beat, and Fite's dangerously fierce vocals before fizzling into eight minutes of feedback.
