Happy Friday, comrades!
In our ongoing effort to bring you the coolest new underground and independent punk rock releases out there, we’re fired up (see what we did there?) to get to spread the word about The Heat today! It’s the brand new album from NYC’s Punt, and it’s their first music in close to a decade!
Following an 8 year break after their last release, Oil, Punt came back together during a brutal heat wave in the Big Apple a couple years back. The resulting album, The Heat, hauls listeners through the grimy underbelly of the city, exploring the “random terrible thoughts” in Frank’s brain and delivering a fuzzed out and riff heavy salute to all things noir.
Here’s what the band had to say about the release:
Punt has always been about music as a spontaneous social expression… hanging out together in a room and deferring to the voltage and the frequencies instead of really inserting yourself with all of your baggage or over-intellectualizing anything. We got together for a week during a heat wave and that’s exactly what we brought, that heat. This album deals with anger, revenge, passion and murder. We’re both extremely passionate and fiery personalities with an uncompromising vision. These songs reflect the more taboo parts of ourselves and helped us put our energy into something we can be proud of.
The Heat is out today on Trash Casual Records. Check it out below!
