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.

Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Dead on TV. It's called "Screwdriver" and it's off the EP Creeper.
Between their nihilistic edge, high cheek bones and riffs based in blues-punk, the band takes cues from bands like The Dead Boys and The Pagans. "Screwdriver" is a slow burning number that swims in a dark, buzzing riff while vocalist Daniel Evans sings like he's just woken up from a rough... week... Stiv would be proud.
Creeper is out now and you can order it here. Meanwhile, you can see the new video below.

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Los Seis Pistos. Based out of Chihuahua, Mexico, the band has made a name for themselves by blending together the different aspects of first wave punk. There's a little Ramones-core here, a little Clash worship there, some straight up rock n' roll over yonder, and of course, a few nods to another band that might have ripped of this band's name. But, when all of that is filtered through this unique cultural perspective, the band is something elese, entirely.
The track is off the album of the same name, out now. You can hear the new single, below.

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video from Radiator King. Radiator King take that ominous, bayou twang and then spookify the whole thing up with some neo-gothic and alt-country tales. "Salesmen" finds frontman Adam Silvestri pulling a grainy voice out of his gut and spitting out Biblical phrases like "an iron fist to cast its print on the world..."
The track is off the recently released Document Untold album which you can order here. Meanwhile, you can see the new vid below.

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new music video by Hot Lunch! The video features the band blasting through a driving, hard rock number with bad ass riffs and badder ass solos. But then, halfway through the video, a taco-fight breaks out resulting in a high speed skateboard chase (perhaps giving the French Connection a run for its money?) If you like old school shredding -- both the guitar and skate kind -- you will dig this.
The tune is off the recently released Slappy Sunday EP, out via Scion AV. You can download that for free right here. Meanwhile, you can check out this high-speed-chase video below.

It doesn't get much more legendary than the UK Subs. The band has been kicking out three-chord bangers since punk's inception (and really, frontman Charlie Harper has been rocking out since 1964!) At the ripe age of 70, Harper is still kicking out the jams. To celebrate Harper's seventh decade, the band has just released the On the Road DVD, which features two complete live shows from late 2014.
Punknews is excited to debut the live video for the classic cut "New York State Police" off the new DVD. You can see the performance below. Meanwhile, you can order the new video here.
Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Zu, "Cortar Todo." In case you don't know, Zu is an Italian avant-garde metal band that cuts vicious, twisting instrumentals. With the recent addition of The Locust's Gabe Serbian on drums, the band has become more berserk, but also, more focused. The video for "Cortar Todo" starts with a crust-punk stomp before shattering into a spastic, sax freakout all while the video displays dark, acid-trip images. If you watch this while "under the influence," you might never recover.
The track is off the Cortar Todo album, out now via Ipecac Recordings. You can see the video below.

Punknews is excited to debut the newest video by Call of the Void. On "R.I.S.," the band nails grindcore and hardcore together into a crusty tangle. This release takes the raw power from hardcore and coats it in the sharp edge of metal, kind of like when Van Dam gets ready to rumble in The Kickboxer by coating his hands in glue and glass.
The tune is off their record Ageless, which is out on Relapse Records now. You can get it here.
Meanwhile, you can click Read More for the video and tour dates.
So, get this: Jason Black of Hot Water Music, Neltie, Arty Shepherd of Primitve Weapons and Gay for Johnny Depp, Matt Kane and Jeff Gensterblum of Small Brown Bike have formed a band. They're called UnWed and they sound like they just got done shotgunning '90s hard rock and post-hardcore.
Well, on April 14, 2015 the band is going to release their debut LP, Raise the Kids, via 6131 Records. But, right now, Punknews is pleased to debut the lyric video for "Weapons," which you can see below. (Also, check out that sweet Nausea t-shirt. This band has taste.)

Punknews is thrilled to debut the new short film by Crazy and the Brains. The film is released in support of the band's brand new EP Good Lord out via Baldy Longhair Records.
In the fractured video, frontman Chris Urban is kidnapped by the rest of the band, posing as mobsters, and thrown in the back of a car. Then, in a psychedelic, chopped and screwed segment, Urban explains the EP's title. You can order the release here. You can click read more for this twisted film.

Punknews is pleased to premiere the new video from The Brokedowns for their song "Cash for Gold." The song appears on their album Life Is A Breeze released earlier this week on Red Scare. Kris Megyery (Guitar/Vocals), stated about the video (he says this should be read as the Ghost of Roger Ebert's voice):
