Go Deep: “Designated” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new tune by Go Deep!

"Designated" opens with a harsh, ambient screeching before collapsing into a modern hardcore stomp. The band flits between the driving rage of the '80s and a more modern metallic method. Listen closely and you'll hear touches of Ceremony and Paint It Black.

The track is off the band's upcoming debut LP, Influence, out November 6 via 6131 Records. Check out the new track and tour dates below.

Austin TX's Riverboat Gamblers (by way of Denton) are preparing to release the second single in their singles series on End Sounds on Friday, November 13, 2015 (spooky!). You can check out "Time to Let Her Go" below (or via a nostalgic "dial-a-song" at (512) 359-3858.) The band will also be going on tour, making a stop at both Pre-Fest in Ybor City as well as Fest in Gainesville (We're sponsors!)

For this second release in the series (there are only supposed to be one or two more in the series), the b-side is a cover of "I Wanna Destroy You" by The Soft Boys.
