Today’s song, featured on The Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is "The Storm" by Abjects, from the 2019 album Never Give Up on Yippee Ki Yay Records.
WRITTEN BY JANICE HEADLEY

Formed in London, punk trio Abjects feature members from around the globe: vocalist and guitarist Noemi Santiago is originally from Spain, drummer Alice Notaristefano is from Italy, and bassist Yuki Ishii is from Japan. While they've been touring the world for years, they're just now releasing their debut full-length, the appropriately titled Never Give Up.

We’re very proud that our drive and self-determination has finally paid off. Regardless all the problems and obstacles we had to face to keep on going, we’ve never stopped having fun..."
