Punknews is excited to bring you the new single "Under Attack" from Try Harder, the new EP by Canadian quartet Bad Buzz. This penultimate track from the EP take things down a little mellower, and a little more emotional. Each song so far stands out on its own, but now we're beginning to get a feel for the EP as a whole, and it is sounding pretty solid!
We've premiered one track (just about) every two weeks and are now coming around to the home-stretch: the final song will be available next Friday when the whole EP is released. Bad Buzz is also playing an album release gig on that day. You can check out the new track, and the details of that gig, below.Read more

Broadside guitarist Dorian Cooke has announced via his Twitter page his departure from the band. Amongst the typical well-wishes for his former bandmates, Cooke mentions that he will be focusing on other projects, including Neverkept.
Broadside is currently slated to support Set It Off on their The Midnight World Tour Part 3: North America tour, and it appears that the band has procured a replacement guitarist and will still be on board for that slate of gigs.
Broadside last released Paradise on Victory Records in 2017. You can check out their supporting dates for that tour below.Read more
Punknews is proud to premiere the new cover song by The Cryptkeeper Five. Their version of Bruce Springsteen's "No Surrender" will be released tomorrow on spotify.
While the song is completely recognizable compared to the original version, it is highlighted and enhanced by vocalist Johnny Ott's Orbison-esque growl and howl.
Johnny had this to say about the song : "'No Surrender' was recorded on The Unbeatable Cry session back in 2011. The band went through a pretty big break-up, losing two members before recording the album and two more while recording the album. It seemed fitting to record the song at the time. Give the guys the ol' Springsteen 'Good Luck, Goodbye.'"
And fittingly enough, the band is still going strong 8 years later. CK5 re-released their latest LP, The Stronghold, on vinyl in 2018 via Say-10 Records and they have a few tour dates coming up as well.
Check out the song and tour dates below:Read more
