Brazil’s 69 Enfermos and California-based Symphony of Distraction have united on record for your listening pleasure. The combination of this skate punk fusion is a split effort entitled They Came From Faster Space. The record features five tracks of rapid fire, uber melodious punk rock, tailored to those with a pining to return to the mid-nineties. Handling the release for the two bands is Dutch label Morning Wood Records.
Guitarist and vocalist of 69 Enfermos, Dalin Focazzio, had the following to say about They Came From Faster Space:
“This is something that everyone who loves and misses the old ’90s skate punk should listen to, and as big fans of Symphony of Distraction we’re very proud to be part of it.”
The previous releases from Symphony of Distraction and 69 Enfermos were the 2018 comeback album, Horse, and the 2017 full-length, A Place to Call Home respectively.

Manchester-based genre straddlers Fair Do’s have just announced that they will tour Japan in the new year. The metal-edged skate punk onslaught will head east between the 9th and 14th of January, hitting up a total of six shows.
Arranging the entire fiasco is the always hardworking RNR Tours.
The frankly stunning tour poster artwork has been inspired by the quartet’s recently released debut full-length, Leopards, and was designed by Holly Dixon of Cat’s Cradle Tattoo Studio. I have on good authority that the beast depicted is known as a “Gundampard”.
You can check out all the dates below.

Canadian punk band Bring On The Storm released their debut album “Atruism” on November 4th. Fans of bands like A Wilhelm Scream, This Is A Standoff and the more technical skate punk stuff should definitely check them out. You can expect fast drumming, excellent melodies and some super fast guitar shredding. The only thing that sucks is that the record only has eight songs!
Listen to the full album below!
The Longest Hall have a song called "Punch A Nazi In The Face". That should be enough for you to give them a try, but I'll expand. The song starts with a driving tom beat that's more punk than you, references the intro to Fuck Tha Police, then drops a 'BLEH' over a riff that makes you want to start a NYHC style pit in your kitchen. All within the first 21 seconds. Hailing from Florida, the band consists of 3 brothers who clearly grew up loving ALL the music. Genres bleed into one another and you can almost see an excitable trio of men going 'oh wait, what if we did this next' in each song. Usually 'this' is another breakdown to get you moshing. Imagine drunkenly stumbling between the practice studios of A Day To Remember, Anti-Flag, All That Remains and Agnostic Front and you're halfway to understanding the sound these guys have put together. Except sometimes they go full metal. There's a lot going on! Check out their debut album here.
