Bombs and Promises

by Ignitemares

We are Ignitemares, a punk rock 3 piece from South Wales. This is a satirical pop punk song written and recorded at home during lockdown! We were challenged to write a song to this title, we felt it sounded Anti-US/Green-Day-ish and ran with that idea. It's rough and silly, hope you enjoy!
