Introducing French Melodic Hardcore Band: Adversity (ft. former members of Bigblast)

When French melodic hardcore band Bigblast broke up in 2015, 4 members of the band formed a new project called Adversity. Now, after months of recording, their debut EP Figure Out has released through KROD Records. The EP features a nice mix of blazing fast punk rock, hardcore breakdowns, and shredding guitar riffs. It’s almost like Atlas Losing Grip, Strike Anywhere, and Mute fornicated and had a beautiful little punk rock baby. Give Figure Out a listen below, and if you like what you hear, head over to Adversity’s Bandcamp Page to buy it.

Introducing New Gritty Pop-Punk Act: The Bumpin Uglies (free EP download)

What is it about Winnipeg that seems to churn out great punk acts? The Bumpin’ Uglies are the city’s latest credit to the melodic punk scene and while I don’t know much about the mysterious five piece I do know they might be the best new band discovery I’ve made this Summer. I can’t quite decide if I’d classify them as pop-punk or skate punk but I’m fairly certain their debut EP “…Fuck Up My Whole Weekend” will have something for just about any fan of either sub-genre. See for yourself and stream the entire release below.



Introducing French Punk Band: Sordid Ship (Free EP Download)

Lorient, France’s Sordid Ship have been around for a few years, and have released a handful of EPs in that time. They play fast, hard-nosed punk rock in the vein of bands like the Circle Jerks and Adolescents. The band’s most recent EP Cocaine Offshore just came out, and if you haven’t heard of these guys yet, I highly recommend checking it out. Give the EP a listen below, and download it for free on Bandcamp.



Introducing Pop-Punk Act: Total Bummer (free EP download)

Looking for a new pop-punk band to discover before all your friends do? Then look no further because we’re serving you up Atlanta’s Total Bummer on a silver plate. The band leans heavily towards the skate-punk side of pop-punk with guitars heavily reminiscent of “Twisted By Design” era Strung Out. The group just released their 3 song debut as a free download on bandcamp and you can stream the entire thing below.



Introducing Folk Tinged Punk Act: Bucky Harris

I can’t help it, I’m a sucker for gritty punk rock sprinkled with small doses of folk rock. Think early Against Me! and very early Gaslight Anthem and I bet most of you are in the same boat. If you’re nodding your head in agreement then I’ve got a band for you to check out. Montreal’s Bucky Harris recently signed to Ocelot Records for the release of their upcoming full-length “Three Wolves” and if the entire album is as good as its first single “These Walls” then we’re all in for something special come July 15th when its released to the masses. Check out a music video for the tune and join the bandwagon below.



Introducing new folk punks: Down With Me

I have to be honest that I don’t know too much about the “folk punk” label, but if someone in the future were to ask me now for a proper first step, I’d have to recommend them Down With Me. Coming from Dover New Hampshire, the band began as just a fun acoustic project in their basement, but realized that it was more than just “weekend fun”, and the passion grew into something a lot more serious. What you will find upon listening to this band is a a straight forward storytelling method with the blends of punk and rock melodies; it makes for chill listening.

The band released their newest full length, Obsolete Commodities June 16th, which you can stream below.



Introducing Metal Infused Skate Punk Act: Gateway (free EP download)

Time for your new punk band discovery of the week! To me Chicago’s Gateway sound exactly like a faster, more skate punk influenced Coheed & Cambria. I honestly had to double check to make sure this wasn’t some weird early side project of Claudio Sanchez’s and I’m still not 100% convinced its not! Anyway, this mysterious three piece just dropped their five song, self-titled debut but this is no rookie effort. Clearly these guys have been honing their craft in other bands for quite some time and if you dig hook laden, metal infused, speedy bands with vocalists that sound like the singer of Coheed & Cambria then stop what you’re doing and listen below. —-—————————————



Surprise! Crash Romeo (pop punk) to play special 10 year anniversary show, working on new album

It has been many years since we’ve heard anything from Crash Romeo, but that looks like it is about to change as the band is eyeing a new studio album to be recorded later in 2016. Along with the new record, the band is announcing a special 10 year anniversary show, where they will play their debut album “Minutes to Miles” in its entirety.

As far as those of you pop punk fans, you won’t want to miss this reunion! The show will be August 27th 2016 at the Crossrooads in Garwood New Jersey.. $10.00 advance tickets (can be purchased through ticketfly.com), $12.00 at the door.



Introducing New Sci-Fi-Horror Punk Act: The Nielsens (FFO: Lillingtons, Ramones, Riverdales)

If you like your punk with heavy doses of Ramones influence and a shameless devotion to campy sci-fi and horror then Edmonton’s The Nielsens need to be added to your radar, right now. The new punk act features Darren Chewka from Teenage Bottlerocket/Old Wives on drums and they’ve just released their brand new almost-full-length, self-titled album. I strongly recommend giving it a listen below.

Recommended Free Download: The Gap Year (pop-punk) – “Under Your Tongue”

Looking for some new free punk tunes but overwhelmed by the vast sea of shitty to mediocre acts that are clogging the the Internet tubes these days? Let us filter out the noise for you and recommend you check out “Under Your Tongue”, a new 2 song EP from Brazilian pop-punk act The Gap Year. It’s good. And it’s free. Stream it below. You’re welcome.



Introducing Metal Infused Punk Act: New Dead Project (free EP download)

I’m not even sure how I’m typing this sentence considering my face has just been melted off by the insane riffage of New Dead Project‘s brand new EP “Run To The Hills”. I know practically nothing about this Budapest punk act except they play incredibly fast, metal infused punk rock and the lead singer sounds like Zoli of Ignite. There’s no info on their facebook. Not a lineup or a band description. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out this was a secret Zoli side project, and almost hope it is after that last disastrous Ignite album. But I digress… Whoever makes up New Dead Project, they completely shred and I highly recommend you stream their new EP below. If you dig it, download it for free on bandcamp.



Introducing Gritty Punk Act: Deposit Man (stream debut EP)

The brand new punk band Deposit Man from Oulu, Finland has released their debut EP and if you dig the gritty, no frills sound of classic punk rock you’ll probably want to check it out. The record is imaginatively named ‘ep’ and it contains five melodic punk songs that discuss everything from politics to everyday life issues of a punk rock Daddy. Stream it below.



Kamikaze Girls (UK Alt-punk) join Bearded Punk Records and play Fest

UK sad punks Kamikaze Girls have joined forces with the burgeoning label from Belgium: Bearded Punk Records. In addition, they’ve been slated to play Fest in the first round of their announcements (which you can check here). No word yet from either band or label on a future release, but we’ll keep you updated.

The two-piece has a similar sound to White Lung (if they were just a bit calmer and more British). You can check out their sound for yourself on their track “Tonic Youth” below.
