On their debut full length release for Jade Tree, CLOAK/DAGGER keep it fast and simple. Produced and recorded at Headbanging Kill Your Mama Music Studios by Chris Owens of LORDS, We Are is a bombastic, rough around the edges approach to minimalist hardcore. Combining the jagged aggression of bands like Swiz and Black Flag with the spastic urgency of Drive Like Jehu, We Are CLOAK/DAGGER embraces a lyrically raw directness that transcends the false conceptions and misgivings of modern punk, offering up honest commentary on the balance between life both with and without excess. In the end, We Are CLOAK/DAGGER embraces the long lost art of disposability, steering away from the culture of celebratory fake aggression, into a new era of raw, incendiary punk music.

CLOAK/DAGGER is what punk rock needs right now.Pastepunk

We Are is dirty. It’s sloppy and raucous. It’s fast and raw. But with Cloak/Dagger, I wouldn’t want it any other way.Absolutepunk

Punk kids might have turned punk rock into just another facet of crappy American culture, but the style isn’t going to be assimilated without a fight. Consider Cloak/Dagger and We Are frontline soldiers in that battleAversion.com
