Pop-Punk & Pizza #128: Makena

2020 has been an extremely tough year on all of us. With there being such a big focus on Covid-19, other important issues haven’t seen the spotlight as much. One of those issues is the Opioid Overdose Crisis in the United States. Makena of Chicago are shedding some light on the subject with their latest single, “Habitual”. Band members, Dominic Cuzzo, Andrei Milosevic, and Steven Schmitz, join me on this episode to explain what inspired them to write about such a heavy topic.

“Habitual” is out now via Famined Records. Listen here:

Much Love,
