Here's a new punk act for you to add to your radar. Splitfist hails from Milton, Ontario and the fivesome play a an aggressive brand of punk rock that calls to mind the vocals of The Flatliners' Chris Cresswell against a slightly more pop-punky backdrop. The group's debut 2 song EP "Knuckle Dragger" is catchy as hell and if its any indication of what's to come from these guys in the future I think we're going to be hearing a lot more of these guys. But don't take my word for it, stream their new EP here where you can also download it for free.

On the track, vocalist John Floreani commented:
Sometimes I think of what my life really is, and what it consists of. Every cloud might have a silver lining, but that would mean ignoring the gigantic mass of dull grey that is the cloud. What if the only thing I’m remembered for when I die is a bunch of shitty sad songs? And who is even going to remember? I am a living example of what actually happens when you dream big, and that is nothing. Hardly a legacy. Penfold is about where I am in life right now, and the moral battle of doing the right thing, even when it’s not what you want but more in the interest of the ones you love.
The band will be touring through Australia throughout November, so if you like what you hear, you can check out the dates and locations for their upcoming shows below.Add to My Radar
