"If You're Like Me"


We're ALL BITE from LA and this is "If You're Like Me" off our new album Get Well Soon! We recorded this track with Jack Shirley (Jeff Rosenstock, Joyce Manor) at his studio The Atomic Garden in Oakland, CA. It's a super fast folk-punk track about self-loathing after ending a relationship!

Hiya, we’re Animal Byproducts, a soft-punk band with brass from Manchester/Leeds. We’re releasing an E.P on called ‘Attempts at Understanding’. One of the songs is ‘Bin Day’, about the patriarchy. It's got a big chorus, and meandering middle and an emphatic drum roll! Let us know what you think.

by Ash Ellis

by Breakfast for Turtles

Hi folks! We're a folk-punk-adjacent kinda post-punk band out of Philly, and we just launched our first EP, Old Gods & End Times. Revelation is a heavy, lyrical, high-energy eulogy for a dying planet.
