Trash U Don't Need

by Knife Crime

Hi - we're Knife Crime from Birmingham. A 3 piece thrash punk band who have come together from a number of other Brum bands. We like to combine aggressive music with great choruses. This song is taken from our first EP, 'Spilt Milk', and is our effort to undermine the world of consumerism.

Hello Punktastic. This is Gramercy. A band that came out of Lockdown. It's fully digital DIY. Written, recorded and released from our bedrooms across North America. The drummer and singer have never met. We have a whatsapp group to share demos. This is our first single, Route 666.

3 Song Promo

by Warrior Tribes

Here is a three song collection from our upcoming debut full length. One fast song, one moody song, one slightly slower rocker. Imagine the type of hardcore band that fits just as well on a post-punk/goth bill as it does on an eight band basement rager.

Shitty City, Baby

by BRASHER

Punk Rock from the European Union! This track you're (hopefully) listening to is from our debut album out on December 13th. We like chunky riffs, gang vocals, sub-par production and being cross at the Tories so if you're into any of that then you'll probably love us!

Stolen Desire

by Our Escape

Hey! We are Our Escape from Orlando, Florida. 'Stolen Desire' is about expressing anxiety, claustrophobia and isolation while feeling desperate for connection with others. Its a fun track to play and one of our favorites off our debut album.

For fans of

EAT DIRT.

There’s no elaborate story surrounding EAT DIRT. What you see if what you get. They’re just a bunch of musicians who needed a place, and head space, to get creative, away from the mess of life in modern Britain—this band is an outlet for the frustration, anger, and rising tide of disenfranchisement.

For fans of

Inhalants

We're a Toronto four-piece that tie punk/rock/hardcore on our 10-track debut. In the first track alone you'll find punk, hardcore, sass, screaming, solos and rock, as well as some synth. Ferocious, eclectic and fun, something for any punk/hardcore fan with a taste for adventure and experimentation.
