Media: Fisherking: 'True Nature' (Exclusive)

Posted by johng on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Image Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new EP by Lansing's Fisherking, True Nature.

Influenced by Comeback Kid and Refused, the band rips through the 13-minute release with two fists of spiky hardcore. Taking notes from punk's late '90s growth spurt, the band uses texture as much as they do smashing guitar lines. One minute, they drift away in a ghostly goth wail and the next, they drop back down from the ceiling with a full, screaming attack. This is hardcore that's mean and smart.

The release is out today and you can order it here. Meanwhile, you can stream the whole thing below, right now.

Exclusive Videos: Class of 86: “Phase Change”

Posted by johng on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Image Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Class of 86. The video is for the tune "Phase Change."

In the video, the band tears through some mid-'80s-inspired skate punk and crossover thrash during the most sacred of all shows, the glorious house show. But, during the revelry, one party-goer finds that he doesn't quite fit in with the group and gets booted from the house. He makes his way back home and well... Stephen King would dig this.

You can order the Future on Fire album at Paper + Plastick right here. Meanwhile, you can watch the video below.

A linguistics professor explains the “pop-punk” vocal

Posted by aubin on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 3:30 PM (EDT)
Image In one of the weirder stories to combine pop-punk, linguistics, Lookout Records and Blink-182, Atlas Obscura asked a Stanford professor about the evolution of the "punk" vocal style attributed to everyone from Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols to Blink-182, Avril Lavigne, and The Offspring.

In short, the professor explains why "singers from all over California had influenced singers from as far afield as Minnesota, Ontario, Maryland, and South Florida." Check it out here.

As for the mystery of why Travis Barker and Iggy Pop can't afford shirts, that remains untold.
