Today’s Office Jam! Pallbearer: “Foreigner”

Welcome to Today’s Office Jam!, a feature where we share a tune someone in the Flagpole office has been digging on. Today’s jam comes via music editor Gabe Vodicka.

Gabe Vodicka’s Jam: If you’re into heavy music, Pallbearer is the bee’s knees. The band sounds like Sleep as fronted by David Lee Roth. Its recent album Sorrow and Extinction is some serious shit. The opening track, “Foreigner,” is a sludgy, persuasive tune truly worthy of the overused adjective “epic.”

Office Objections?: I don’t think anyone in the office got past minute three.
