New Band Spotlight: Hope Street (Australia Punk Rock)

Alright all you fans of melodic and passionate punk rock, we got a new band for you to check out who should be right up your alley.  Hope Street hails from Perth, Australia and plays a style of punk rock that seamlessly blends the old with the new, taking equally from old school ’77 style punk and street punk, as well as some modern melodic hardcore elements.  The band recently released their new EP Rebel Hearts and you can check it out below.

The Mercenaries (reggae-punk) premiere “Night Call” off upcoming album “Rocky Road”

Equal parts reggae rocksteady and street punk, Parisian punk act The Mercenaries are poised to release their debut full-length “Rocky Road” on November 11th. I’ve only heard one track from it but I think it’s safe to say this is now my most anticipated album of the season – it’s that good. If you fell instantly in love with Rancid’s “I Wanna Riot” the first time you heard it, you’re also going to love The Mercenaries track “Night Call”. Give it a listen below.

Introducing New Gritty Punk Act: Raincheck (full EP stream)

OK punk enthusiasts, here’s a new group to check out if you fancy yourself a fan of gritty yet melodic punk acts a la Sainte Catherines. Raincheck hales from Lyon and the fivesome are clearly not new to the scene as this debut sounds better than most band’s 2nd or 3rd release. Anywho, stop reading and start listening below.

Introducing New Punk Act: Guttural Riot (full EP stream)

Now this is what what I’m talking about. New punk act Guttural Riot consists of Alex “Sugar” Feuer and Michael “Gunther” Elliott and without any fluff or fanfare they’ve released a pretty kickass debut, self-titled EP that shreds through 4 tracks of heavy punk rock that falls somewhere between RKL and Andrew WK. Its fun stuff and I recommend you give it a listen below.

Introducing Melodic Skate Punk Act: Born To Freedom (free download)

Fans of melodic, speedy punk rock will want to check this one out. Brazil’s Born To Freedom have put out their first proper release, titled “Life Is Movement,” and we recommend you give them a chance to win you over below. Did we mention it’s free?

“Life Is Movement” is the band’s first release since their 2012 demo. Worth the wait if you ask me.

Introducing New Street Punk Act: Silent Opposition (full album stream)

Seattle punk act Silent Opposition recently released their debut full-length “The Rhetoric Of Social Change” and we highly recommend you check it out below. The production is solid and the band clearly pulls a lot of influences from 90′s punk staples. Think Chuck Ragan singing in a Hellcat Records street punk band and you’ll be close to their sound.

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.
