Just a couple of days before the release of its physical 7″ version on May 5, Washington, DC’s fast hardcore punk rockers LOUD BOYZ are teaming up with us to give you an exclusive insight into their new EP “Party In The USA”, available for streaming below! The record retains the raw nature of earlier decades of punk, but its scope and seems to be evven more direct, surprisingly accessible and resonating. Too bad it’s so short.
Party in the USA: this is title track of our record, and it’s about partying and spiraling out of control through the night. Although, with the current state of affairs in the USA, this song could easily take on another meaning.
The Badge: simply put, this song is for anyone who’s ever “fit the description.”
What a Time to be Alive: This is our most topical song on the record. With everything going on in the USA today it shows no love for either side of our two party system, which is still a complete joke.
Weekday Warrior: I work in the restaurant industry, as do many people in the music industry. This song is about partying on a Monday because we always work on Fridays and Saturdays and the weekends are pretty overrated.

Washington, D.C.’s Loud Boyz are “fast, loud, and one hell of a racket, with hints of early hardcore and more recent garage punk” (Brooklyn Vegan). A staple of the mid-Atlantic region, they’ve played as direct support for bands like The Buzzcocks, Dag Nasty, Marky Ramone, and Darkest Hour at venues including D.C.’s 9:30 Club and Black Cat, NJ’s The Stone Pony, and NYC’s Gramercy Theatre. Band members Brandon Brown, Alex Anderson, Devin O’Donoghue, Rory Sheridan, and Mitchell West play aggressive hardcore punk rock and aren’t afraid to crack a smile while doing it.
The band’s first EP was released on D.C. imprint Cricket Cemetery in January 2015, followed by a full length LP, Tough Love, Hard Feelings, in July 2015. Their new self-released EP, Party in the USA, will be released on May 5, 2017.
