Start Again

by Red Weather

Hello there Punktastic readers! We're a band called Red Weather from Virginia Beach, VA. (a.k.a. America's largest suburb - Google it!) This song has it all - the classic Emo vocals, a driving and punchy chorus, and a goosebump worthy bridge. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Cardboard Box

by Squidge

We're Squidge, a four-piece comprised of silly sad punks. Today we released our new track, Cardboard Box, which covers a deep self-reflection of a person's life from their deathbed. It's not all doom and gloom though as the track is 3 minutes of killer riffs, breakdowns and monstrous choruses! Enjoy!

Breichiau Hir

Hey, this is our new single 'Penblwydd Hapus Iawn'. An unflinching three minutes of punk aggression powered by a wall of three pronged guitars and cathartic vocals. The song is about a catastrophic birthday party I attended a few years ago where I witnessed the worst in some of the best people”.

This is Flèche (Paris, FR), four fans of The Get Up Kids having each previously played in a bunch of bands and now trying to mix the thick rock and harmonies of Alice in Chains with the technical pop of Minus the Bear. What we like is to make the melody that alternates soft verses and heavy choruses

Glazed is here to turn 2019 into 1999 pt. 2 with our new single 'New York City.' The sound stems from our love for pop punk, hardcore and emo music, as well as our experience as a racially diverse band in the Southeast U.S. This is just the tip of the iceberg for our year! More to come soon.
