Introducing Female Fronted Pop-Punk Act: Coral Springs (Free EP)

As much as I like the fast-hard-hitting skate/melodic stuff, when it comes to female fronted bands it seems like I become so much more open-minded, why? I don’t fuckin’ know. I guess there’s something about female vocalists that gives another approach or dimension to punk rock. Oh wait, let’s cut the crap. I might also just be a sucker for female-fronted pop-punk… Anyway, sucker or not, Coral Springs are playing the typically-catchy-enjoyable pop-punk, and the Netherlands based outfit is actually streaming and offering for free download their latest EP entitled “Find Happiness Here”. Which in my “open-minded” opinion, is pretty good from front to back. I’ll be honest with you though, they’re not reinventing the wheel with a familiar sound that most of you will recognize, but they’re still truly worth a listen.

Stream or download “Find Happiness Here” below. It serves as a follow up to the band’s debut EP “Greetings From Coral Springs” released in 2012. Also available on Bandcamp.

Introducting New Nerd Punk Act: Thundering Asteroids! (free EP download)

I’m stealing this from the band’s own Facebook, but I thought it did a great job of describing Thundering Asteroids‘ overall aesthetic:  “This female-fronted cadre of melodic cacophony remembers when punk was punk, games were 8-bit, and skateboarding wasn’t considered a sport.”  Fun, nerdy and definitely punk rock, the band’s debut EP “The Nerd Punk Guide To The Galaxy” is 100% worth listening to below.  And if you dig it you can download it for free on bandcamp.

The Forty Whacks (female fronted pop-punk) stream new EP “Saturday Night Loud”

S&M punk act Gash release music video for “Ritual”

Five years running Dying Scene and I must say this is the first time I’ve come across an “S&M punk” band. Philly based Gash has released their first video for “Ritual” off of their debut “Subspace” EP and you can check it out in all its erotic glory below.

“Gash is part performance art, combining on-stage rituals with hardcore punk riffs, backed by blues-inspired melodic guitars. Singer Tibbie X often gets audience members to handcuff her to the microphone, or is publicly flogged by stage-dom Steph, offering herself to the crowd in acts of submission.”

I might have to check one of these shows out…

The new video shows cuts from New York City’s “Gotham Grindhouse” nights at Tammany Hall.

Introducing Female Fronted Punk Act: Uneeda

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.

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

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.
