Chinese Punk Band SMZB Release CD Version of New Album Printed in Taiwan

Chinese punk rock legends SMZB earlier this year released their brand new full length ‘Once Upon a Time in the East’. The Mainland Chinese version is censored – 4 songs have been removed and the cover art has been changed. Therefore, the only ORIGINAL version of the CD is being released in Taiwan under the label 鼓樓唱片. The label has said copies are currently still available and you can grab that HERE. If you support worldwide punk rock and hardcore, and your fellow brethren can’t even release an album in their own home country, you really should go support them by purchasing their music and merch any way you can.
