Here's a new punk act for you to add to your radar. Splitfist hails from Milton, Ontario and the fivesome play a an aggressive brand of punk rock that calls to mind the vocals of The Flatliners' Chris Cresswell against a slightly more pop-punky backdrop. The group's debut 2 song EP "Knuckle Dragger" is catchy as hell and if its any indication of what's to come from these guys in the future I think we're going to be hearing a lot more of these guys. But don't take my word for it, stream their new EP here where you can also download it for free.
