Introducing Female Fronted Punk Act: Uneeda

Posted by vdubowner on Monday, September 15, 2014 at 11:13 AM (PST)

I came across Uneeda while bouncing around on the World-Wide-Web and man i’m glad I found them…They’re a Canadian trash/punk band from St. Johns, Newfoundland, inspired by bands such as NOFX, Lagwagon, Misfits, Slayer and Metallica. They play a speedy riffing and fast-paced drumming metal infused punk rock. The band recently released a music video for a new song entitled “Momentum” which will appear on their upcoming album to come out later this year.

Check out the rad video below.

Back in 2012, Uneeda released a demo EP entitled “Handout”. You can download/stream it on the band’s Bandcamp.

When reading the bio on Travis James & the Acrimonious Assembly of Arsonists I must admit they had me at “the Meat Loaf of punk”.  Perhaps a better comparison could be made to World/Inverno Friendship Society but either way these guys are worth a listen.  The band just put out a new full-length titled “Overdressed & Under Arrest” that any fan of piano and accordion infused anarcho folk punk is going to seriously dig.  If that’s you, or you’re just looking for something a little different, give it a listen below.

Introducing “Cougar” Pop-Punk Act: Alyson’s Anthem

Posted by Johnny X on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 12:50 PM (PST)

I’m a sucker for female fronted pop-punk acts.  I’m not talking the Paramore, radio friendly kind.  I’m talking the whoa-oh filled, three-chord heavy, we’re going to be broke as long as we play this type of music kind.  If you’re with me on that you should check out Alyson’s Anthem.  I’m seriously digging on their debut EP “Cougar Punk EP (vol 1)” and you can stream it here.

Introducing New Punk Act: Go Die (free EP download)

Posted by Johnny X on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 1:03 PM (PST)

Go Die is for punk fans looking for something a little different.  Consisting of only two members the band still manages to churn out pretty dynamic sounding tunes through insightful lyrics and electronic effects.  They sorta remind me of a slightly more lo-fi version of Intro5pect meets early era Dwarves.  Anyway, the duo released an album called “Nail House Rock” somewhat recently and you can stream and/or download it for free on their bandcamp.  Check ‘em out!

Introducing UK Pop-Punk Act: Sunken Monkey

Posted by vdubowner on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at 9:15 AM (PST)

First let’s start by saying that these guys from the UK aren’t new to the punk rock scene. In fact, Sunken Monkey last released their self titled debut album back in 2009, and the band’s actually gearing up to release a new record entitled “Party Scars” this October through Bumface Records. They take their influences from bands like NOFX, The Menzingers, Rise Against and Four Year Strong.

If this sounds good to you, stream the song entitled “This Town’s Too Big (For The Both Of Us)” off Sunken Monkey’s upcoming album and check out the official music video below.

Introducing new skacore act: Wasted Daze (full album stream)

Posted by JerryLowLife on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 12:06 PM (PST)

According to their Facebook page, UK skacore/hardcore/punk act Wasted Daze have been around since 1998, and if that’s the case, I feel like we all have been missing out.  Listening to their newest album Morningcide, I immediately heard the skacore influences of Choking Victim and other related bands, but diving further into the album proved that the 2 piece incorporates many more influences into their approach to this high octane style of punk music.  Doses of 90′s skate punk as well as old school pop punk and hardcore also make it’s way into the albums 11 tracks, and they do it all very well.

Anyway, I’ll let you guys judge for yourself.  You can stream Morningcide in its entirety below.

King Punch is an awesome 7-piece ska-punk powerhouse based out of London, England. They’ve been around almost 4 years and have already released 2 great EPs – both which are free to download – but I didn’t stumble upon them until a few minutes ago. If you like high-energy ska-punk with a full horn section, I highly recommend heading over to Bandcamp and checking out this band’s tunes!

If I were to describe Future Primitive‘s sound in just two words, the words I’d use would probably be ‘fucking nuts’. This 4-piece from North Carolina has been around for no more than 4 months but they sound like they’ve been playing their unique brand of unrelentingly fast melodic hardcore together for years. Don’t believe me? Listen to the demo they just put up on their Bandcamp page – it’s free to stream and download, but I highly recommend throwing a few bucks their way to help ‘em put out a proper release!

Introducing new folk punk act: The Old Ironsides

Posted by JerryLowLife on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 11:31 AM (PST)

Coming off the break up of  Those Hated Hearts, guitarist/vocalist Jarett Slionski has started a new folk punk project called The Old Ironsides.  To give you a taste of what to expect, you can download a copy of their first album Losers, Dreamers, and Saints for free.  Give it a listen below.

The album was recorded by Jarett acoustically, but he has found some additional members for the band and they will be playing these same songs as a full electric band going forward.

Introducing: What’s Left Is Yours (Punk Rock)

Posted by vdubowner on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at 6:15 AM (PST)

My latest discovery comes from the Land Down Under and goes by the name of What’s Left Is Yours. The 3-piece punk outfit is currently streaming their debut self-titled EP and offering it as a pay what you want download. They’re playing a catchy-sing-along-Hardcoreish Pop-Punk. Confused? Let me explain: Being the sucker that I am, I got hooked at the 0:25 mark of the highly addictive opening song “Punk Rock Party”. But when I started listening to “Insanity”, the song that followed, I was like “Fuck, am I listening to the same band?!” A completely different sound from the first tune, a much more heavy and less poppy approach that somehow reminded me of Only Crime, and it didn’t stop there…I’ve been brought back to Blink-182′s “Dude Ranch” era as soon as the 3rd song “Mexico” kicked in… Anyway, I’ll stop there and let you guys judge it for yourself. If you like diversity and you feel like being all mixed up in a good way, give a listen to the Aussies in What’s Left Is Yours here.

Favorite track: “Insanity”

Introducing garage punk act: Dangerous Chickens (members of The Manges)

Here’s a new (to us at least) garage punk band coming out of Italy.  Dangerous Chickens consists of Max and Manuel Manges from veteran pop-punk act The Manges.  The band has been going at it for 13 years as a Manges side project, releasing a 7″ here or a 10″ there.  Recently, the guys recorded some of their best songs for a 13 song album called Thirteen, released on Surfin’ Ki Records.

You can stream their new album in its entirety below below.
