Punknews is excited to debut the new album by Legendary Wings. The LP is called Do You See and it's a real barnstormer. The band takes Ramones-core speed and chugging and then completely rips the whole thing apart with messy, garage rock distortion and just a smidgen of Weezer-ish balladry. The album rocks up front but has soul at the edge of every riff.
The release will be out in the next few weeks via Dirtnap Records. Ordering information is here. Meanwhile, you can listen to the whole thing right now on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Today's stream comes from Orange County, New York-based Entropy. We've got a stream of the band's new release, All Work, No Plagiarism.
On the release, the band blasts though hyper-short tunes influenced by the likes of modern hardcore champions including Paint it Black and Cloak/Dagger. But, while the musical backing comes from the east coast, the band's vocals are pure 80's California punk. Hints of Mike Muir and Ron Reyes are found in vocalist Brian Lawrence's voice as he screams about ecstasy at the Circle K. This is hardcore that doesn't forget to be punk.
You can find the pre-sale here. Meanwhile, you can find the new album on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Bracket is back, baby! Hold Your Applause is the group's first album in eight years and throughout it, the band once again shows just how unique they are.
Those beautiful Beach Boy harmonies open the album only for them to pull out the rug and kick into buzzing power-pop-punk. But, while the band pulls out all their trademarks here, this isn't a nostalgia trip. The band takes their earlier sound and fashions it into something more precise, more tactical, and frankly, more soulful than before. This is sort of like what would have happened if Brian Wilson was a Ramones fan.
The release is out today via Head2Wall Records. You can buy the vinyl here and buy the CD here. Meanwhile, we've got a stream of the album on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Punknews is excited to debut the new album by The Picturebooks!
On their new release, Imaginary Horse. the German duo kick out thumping, muscular riffs. At their core, the duo takes cues from the blues-based sledgehammering of Scott Asheton. But then, on the even nastier cuts like "Your kisses burn like fire," the band gets grimey and wallows in low, rumbling reverberations that would make any Amphetamine Reptile band proud. This is vicious, modern rock and roll.
The album is out October 7 via Riding Easy Records and you can order it here. Meanwhile, you can click Read More for the new album.

Today, Punknews is super thrilled to stream Sharkanoid's debut LP, the timely named Have a Great Summer.
Composed of Dan Potthast of Mu330 and Rick Johnson of Mustard Plug, the band puts their pedigree to use and comes out swinging on this energetic release. There are smashing riffs, Elvis Costello inspired love tunes, spastic refrains, and a song about pillow fights. This is pop-punk that keeps something weird in the background at all times.
The album is out October 7, 2014 via Community Records. You can pre-order this bad boy here. Meanwhile, you can hear the whole thing on the band's Punknews.org Profile
