Krum Bums “Gasoline”
One-time Chronicle tour guide Dave Tejas has written a track-by-track guide to the Krum Bums lethal new album, Cut the Noose. His thoughts on lead single “Gasoline,” premiered by AltPress: “This song is very important to me, written when I was felt the walls closing in and people trying to take me down. I needed to take a long look at myself and change my pain into anger (and lyrics). I needed it to survive! This was the result.”
