Introducing new Boston Celtic punk band: Mickey Rickshaw (Free Album Download)

Our latest spotlight band hails from a little city you may know as Boston, Massachusetts.  They’re called Mickey Rickshaw, and though they classify themselves a Celtic punk band, their sound differs greatly from that of the genre’s poster boys Dropkick Murphys.  The band just released their debut full-length No Heaven For Heroes, which features 12 blazing-fast Irish punk anthems that are just as gritty as they are polished.  Give the record a listen below, and head over to their Bandcamp page to download it for free (or for the price of your choice).

Joining the team in-studio is Bobby’s “business associate”, Tone Lo-ki, of FAT ENZO. The two Bobs, and their trusty sidekick, spotlight two bands: Denver ska-punks The A-OKs who’ve just released their third full-length studio album Maybe Partying Will Help, and Philadelphia horror-punk act The Mad Splatter who are set to release their new EP Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things. Episode 20’s recurring theme: Role Reversal.

Alright punk fans, if you’re into skate punk, specifically the Fat Wreck type bands, even more specifically those that sound like Frenzal Rhomb then I’ve got a great new band for you to check out.  London’s On A Hiding To Nothing describe themselves as “laid back guys playing double time, catchy melodic skate punk straight out of Fat Mike’s bottom drawer”, and I highly recommend you fact check that by streaming their recently released self-titled EP below.

Introducing New Punk Act: Adverse96

For those of you that like discovering new punk bands on DS, here’s a pretty kickass little group I highly recommend you check out.  I can’t quite put my finger on why exactly but they sorta remind me of 1208 and a band called Convict, which might be too obscure a reference for most of you.  Anyway, they’re called Adverse96, they’re from Belgium, and while they’re a new band the individual members are all long time punk scene veterans.  The foursome just released their self-titled demo EP and you can (and should) stream it below.

Introducing New Pop-Punk Act: Anyway! (full album stream)

Here’s a new pop-punk band to check out.  Philly’s Anyway! are equal parts poppy and heavy and their music sorta falls in the same vein of Four Year Strong, though dare I say it, Anyway! seems much more versatile.  The four piece recently recorded their debut album “1st American” at the Blasting Room Studio and I recommend you give it a “spin” below.

Introducing Acoustic Folk-Punk Act: Five Minute Major
