For the better part of a decade, the local operative known as the Cuban Missiles has been stealthily honing its freewheeling rock & roll with elements of pop-punk, punk-punk and whatever sort of punk Gaslight Anthem is. Yet the Granite City trio remains below radar thanks to its tortoise-speed approach to marketing its hare-swift tunes. The band's new record, When They Come For Us, We'll Be Gone, is its first recording that plays like a fully realized album rather than a work-in-progress demo. Fittingly, the Cuban Missiles plan a celebratory blowout including fellow working-class punks Sink the Bismarck, the Disappeared and the Haddonfields.

I Swear I've Seen That Guy Before: Those who have never watched the Cuban Missiles play may recognize drummer Colin Anderson as one of the live sound engineers at Cicero's.
