“They Don’t Have to Believe“, the newest work by California powerviolence / hardcore act PUNCH is available for streaming! The record will be out on August 19th and is a real grower. Can’t wait to see what they do and how many great shows they play later this year.
The label commented:
Punch is a socially conscious hardcore band from San Francisco, California. They carry a recognizably fast, heavy sound with pulverizing breakdowns, intelligent song structures and absolutely plastering vocals. Their Debut EP, “Eyeless” (2008), “Self Titled” LP (2009) and secnnd LP “Push Pull” (2010) were joint releases on record labels 625 Thrashcore and Discos Huelga. Their 2011 EP “Nothing Lasts” was released by a partnership of 625 Thrash,Discos Huelga, and Deathwish Inc.
They have toured North and South America, Japan, Australia, and Europe.
We are proud to announce the release of “They Don’t Have To Believe” from Punch. Recorded by Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden Studios (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, etc.) “They Don’t Have To Believe” is a monster of an album. Fifteen songs that blur the lines of hardcore and grind. All of them personal, political, and uniquely unapologetic. Buzzing with an electricity that is rare to experience in today’s world of heavy music. No polish, just pure rage.
