Madcap releases first new song in 10 years (Punknews Exclusive)

Madcap releases first new song in 10 years (Punknews Exclusive)

Madcap is back, baby! Today, Punknews is thrilled to debut the band's first new song in ten years!

Madcap frontman Johnny Madcap has applied his solo power-pop project to his mainstay band resulting in an energetic track that pulls from both the Descendents and Elvis Costello. Melody and speed rule the day here, resulting in a track that contrasts a skip-happy musical backing against rather dark subject matter. Oh la la!

Speaking to Punknews, Johnny Madcap said,"When the opportunity arose for us to reunite for the It's not dead festival this year it definitely sparked something in us that reminded us of a time in our lives that was fun, beautiful and free. So we decided to not only do the festival but also start jamming on some new tunes. This new one "In a fight with the world" is a song unique to the Madcap sound but also reflects 10 years of maturing. It's fun, beautiful and free again. I definitely see us releasing more new music and playing some festivals."

Check out the new video below, right now!

Teen Vice: "Cochon Deluxe" (Punknews Exclusive)

Teen Vice: “Cochon Deluxe” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Teen Vice.

Teen Vice play scuzzy as hell garage punk. "Cochon Deluxe" mashes huge, buzzing guitars into a power-pop chassis resulting in a track that storms forward, wrapped in sonic barbwire. Meanwhile, the Greg Palka directed video is suitably whacked out with naked people dancing around in pig masks.

“When we went into filming Cochon, it was very important for us to illustrate not only how toxic certain forms of performance masculinity can be, but also to show a deep feeling of concern for isolationism, which our country is now experiencing with wide-spread nationalism”, says singer and bassist Joshua Ackley. “Iconography comes into play as well—symbols that can be used as propaganda, only coming in as a frame for the narcissist.”

Saddest Summer is out now via Commission Music. You can order it right here. Check out the new video below.
