In the mid-2000s, P.J. Hearn got a job working for a government agency. After becoming aware of some questionable activity involving several of his co-workers, Hearn ignored pleas to "let it go" and brought his concerns to the attention of his supervisor.

But the only person to face punishment was Hearn himself, who became the target of retaliatory attacks and smear campaigns for his whistleblowing. Eventually, Hearn quit his job, enlisted the help of two friends, and started Leadsucker as a way to channel his rage.

"Burn" is the band's debut album, and it's evident from the outset just what they're trying to accomplish. More than an album, it's an outright indictment of American government and ideals that never once allows the listener to catch their breath. Unrelenting and confrontational, "Burn" returns hardcore punk to its roots with polarizing lyrics and an aggressive delivery that will resonate with you long after the final note fades away.
