Anti-Nazi Riot

by The Kindred

Hey! This song was actually recorded for our second full-length back in 2006. We want to get the message across that it's important to be anti-racist as not being racist isn't enough.

Hard Of Thinking

by Disgraceland

We're Disgraceland, 3 arrogant misfits from Devon who just want to make an unholy racket that takes the last 60 years of rock and roll history, crank up the distortion and hammer the foot to the floor.

For fans of

Dolphin Suicide

by Laserchrist

South east London dirty melodic psych punks Laserchrist are back with new single 'Dolphin Suicide'. It's the band's first new material since their 2018 Plasterer Records EP 'DIY-bother?' And it's heavier (and angrier) than normal.

For fans of

New American Dream

by SeepeopleS

This track from renowned anti-genre pranksters was banned by Facebook! Listen and watch for yourself. The video was created and directed by world-renowned animator Pete List of MTV's Celebrity Death Match, and Marilyn Manson’s “Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes”. The song is really just an examination of people who lust after power, and the perspective that those people might be a little sick in the head.

City

by Who Killed Nancy Johnson?

We're a four piece from Reading with a good reputation live but less so for recordings. We got fed with sterile, polite studios. So we spent £400 on DIY gear and booked a village hall in Oxfordshire for a weekend, and recorded an album. I SEE SIX is out June 2020. This is the second track.

For fans of

Create & Rebel

by The Sewer Cats

Hi all, we're The Sewer Cats, a punk duo from Manchester full of furry fury! 'Create & Rebel' is from our debut EP 'Zelda', released in April on Hell Hath No Fury Records. It's about rejecting the milestones society asks us to tick off and instead creating things just for the sake of it.

Premium Healthscare

by Apathy Cycle

This is from our upcoming full length release (out 4/24). We wrote this song over 3 years ago and it seems more relevant today than ever!

Punish the Poor

by Who Killed Nancy Johnson?

We're Who Killed Nancy Johnson? and this is our reading of what the Conservative Party manifesto is careful not to say.

For fans of

Fired For Partying.

by World War IX

Hello Pickup! World War IX here. Do you like slap in your face, hook filled, humor driven punk rock?! Well so do we, and we just so happen to have a brand new 5 song 10" out that we think YOU will enjoy. We've been around for a few COUGH years and, we're having more fun than ever!

For fans of

Gumiho 구미호

We are Gumiho 구미호 based out of Seoul, Korea. We are three foreigners and a local Korean as our lead singer. The name Gumiho comes from an old Korean legend about fox spirits called gumihos that would pose as beautiful women, seduce men, and then eat their livers.

For fans of

Slow Cooker

Hi. We're SLOW COOKER and we're set to release our debut album "Do A Kickflip" on Drug Party Tapes. We're channelling garage rock through the erratic energy of early hardcore punk. Sweaty, manic, weird punk flowing like a house party in reverse.

For fans of

The Muslims

Yo! We're The Muslims, a thrashy, hard-hitting punk band bringing political humor and tender rage to both halal and haram punks everywhere. We play a mix of classic, hardcore and afropunk influenced stuff. We're just a bunch of cuddly, angry ass, rabid raccoons okay.

For fans of

Hot Ham & Cheese

Hey all...we are Hot Ham & Cheese from Cleveland, OH. This is the new single from our latest album The Onions Have Eyes. It's also the sequel to our 2006 track "Cocaine Billy". Pretty much straight-forward, old school punk at its core. We hope you dig it!

For fans of

Los Pinche Pinches

What do wipeouts, spilled beers, and sun burns have in common? Nothing really, but they go great with the sounds of Los Pinches Pinches. It’s what you get if you had Dick Dale shredding over the quirky math rock of Arab on Radar. It’s surf rock for weirdos.

For fans of

Zephyranthes

Born of a mutual love for Trailer Park Boys and The Matrix, our music is a dirty stew of whacked out prog and punk-inspired minimalism. Our latest, Zephyranthes III, dips into the dimebag to find a handful of radioactive sonic nuggets.

For fans of

The Tar Sands

Hi I'm Scott Martin! I'm the singer, drummer, guitarist, bassist, songwriter, just everything for The Tar Sands. I got sick of playing with people who didn't wanna play rowdy fuzzed out garage punk so I DIY'd My debut album, Unfiltered is all me, and all dirty, greasy, gross tones & themes. Enjoy!

For fans of

Jim Jones and the Kool-Aid Jammers

Hey, we're Jim Jones and the Kool-aid Jammers from Newfoundland, Canada. We play catchy surf punk and write about everything from dead people to aliens. We've been a band for almost 2 years and are about to release out second album called "instant cult classic".
