I love when songs are titled with initials; it could mean anything!
That’s not quite as furiously loud and gnarly and hate-filled as you can often get with Checkmate, but it’s still pretty on point in an idol-meets-punk kind of way. I’d have liked maybe one growl here or there, but you take what you’re given sometimes.
Checkmate’s first one-man is Friday. May the gods help us all.
