Cutting Edge's single cover for "F--- the I.R.S."

April 17th, 2012 is the deadline to file your taxes. Not only will it be one of the busiest mail days in the United States, but Americans everywhere will scramble to get their tax information turned into the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Indie band Cutting Edge protests against overtaxing the working class and lets the world know how the IRS and U.S. government takes too much money from individuals and families who are working from paycheck to paycheck in their new single, “F- – - The IRS.”

Cutting Edge is asking all of those in favor of lower taxes to “like” their Facebook page and to show their support by changing their Facebook icon on Tax Day, April 17th. The icon is available on the Cutting Edge Facebook page.

Despite its powerful message, “F – - – The IRS” contains no profanity, just a message to U.S. government to consider the working class American people and understand the economic situation the country is in. The people deserve a significant reduction in their taxes, and this new song making headlines will have listeners thinking twice about what direction this country is headed in. Despite hard financial times, lead singer of the indie band Cutting Edge, David Pesnell wants to speak out for all American working class people who are subjected to not being able to pay their bills, eat healthy food, consistently provide for their families and loved ones and of course, pay their taxes without being gouged by the IRS. In Pesnell’s eyes, the IRS has become a monster that is spinning out of control.

“People are afraid to challenge the system,” Pesnell says. “We need to be looking for an answer or solution, not fearing a system that continues to grow out of control.”

Pesnell believes “F – - – The IRS” is the voice of the working class people which will hopefully become the anthem that ignites a revolution of change against the controlling IRS monster and U.S. government organizations who are in favor of overtaxing people that can’t afford it and live paycheck to paycheck now. In fact, since the beginning, Cutting Edge has been all about voicing their opinion through song and making a change by standing up and speaking out volumes.

Despite their status and success, Cutting Edge hasn’t grown out of their humble beginnings. The indie band’s latest album “Censored by the U.S. Government” is available for digital download for only $2, and tickets to see Cutting Edge live stay within the range of $10 to $20.

“It’s not about seeing how much money we can make from this,” Pesnell says. “It’s about making music with a powerful message that people enjoy.”

In 1997, David Pesnell, his late wife Liza Pesnell, who since then has lost her battle with cancer at an early age, and William Zimmerman came together in the same Compton, Calif. recording studio used by hip-hop icon Dr. Dre to record a humorous song about politicians dancing. The song entitled “D.C. Shuffle” was given to a couple hundred people in the music business as well as family and friends of the band before exploding on the college music scene and dance charts. Cutting Edge was born, recording, playing and performing the songs written by Zimmerman and Liza Pesnell and releasing records on Pesnell’s independent label, Thunder Quest Records.

Three days before her passing, Liza Pesnell penned a song called “Losing You” that detailed her feelings and assured her husband, friends and family that she’ll be watching them from above. To this day, Zimmerman has never listened to the song since it was recorded and Pesnell has only been able to listen to it a couple of times without breaking down. The band has never performed the song in concert, even though music industry professionals feel it will be a massive hit.

The lyrics by Liza Pesnell speak to the heart of every listener, touching on love, hunger problems, financial issues and even death. When Liza Pesnell lost her battle with cancer in 2004, she left her husband and fellow band member the ultimate reminder of her talent and love for them.
