None or Unknown
If you like high-energy, loud punk rock, there's a good chance you'll like Well Aren't You Precious. They prefer to be called "rock 'n' roll" but I've taken it upon myself to label them "garage punk" because I think it better encompasses their overall sound. The boys from Iowa show that punk is still alive in the Midwest, and remind me a bit of fellow Midwest punks, Off With Their Heads. You can stream their entire album Awwwww on Bandcamp. There's also the option to buy it on CD/digital, so keep that in mind!

“We said we’d cover anything they wanted and we got 6 very different songs from different genres and different eras in music, each with their own challenges. We had no intention of simply playing these songs as they were originally played (especially Bohemian Rhapsody… we didn’t wanna go anywhere near that song!) so we took our time and completely rebuilt them from the ground up to make sure we made them our own. Some of the songs we loved and had to figure out how to tweak them without totally ruining them and some of the songs we hated and had to figure out how to make them good, but I believe we rose to the challenge and, with the help of our Kickstarter backers, put together a very strange and very cool little cover EP. We definitely trashed some classic tunes, but it’s all very tongue-in-cheek since we would never take a cover song seriously ’cause it’s basically just doing karaoke…”

The fellas in Philadelphia punk act The Holy Mess have announced they are currently recording a new album with A Wilhelm Scream‘s Trevor Reilly producing. Looks like fans can expect an 11 track album due out later next year on Red Scare Industries. Here’s what they had to say:
“Dear internet, sportos, motorheads, geeks, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, and dickheads: we begin recording our new record today. Trevor Reilly and Mike Supina will handle the recording duties this time around at Black and Blue Studios in lovely New Bedford, Massachusetts. With a no frills approach to the songwriting, the result is eleven quick, angry, and snappy tunes fit for the current state of your dwindling attention spans. It will be fueled by a steady diet of No Problemo, booze, and weed. Red Scare Industries will release it. More info down the road…. Get stoked shitheads.”
