Dog Party

Watch the new Dog Party video!

Today, Punknews is pumped to bring you the new video by Dog Party!

The band's new album, Hit & Run, is their punchiest record to date- 11 songs in 25 minutes, 150 second charger after 150 second charger. Opening track "The Walk" exemplifies this precisely. As drummer/vocalist Lucy Giles hisses "You think you can walk on me? Well, I dare you to walk on me!" while sister Gwendolyn flips between Johnny style buzzsaw and lashing guitar solos.

Hit & Run is out today via Brat Records and you can pick it right here. Meanwhile, check out "The Walk" below, right now!

Against Me! play Detroit show with former bassist Andrew Seward

Last night Against Me! played a show at the Trumbullplex in Detroit, Michigan with former bassist Andrew Seward. Seward joined the band in 2002 and then left in 2013. He was then replaced by current bassist Inge Johansson. It isn't clear whether Andew Seward is back in the band or not at this point. Against Me!'s last full-length was Shape Shift With Me , which was released in 2016. You can watch a fan-shot video and see some social media posts of the performance below.

Dog Party

Dog Party on Beatles, Breakups, and their new album

The three chord, high energy duo Dog Party are about to release their sixth record, Hit & Run. As before, sisters Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles stick to a sharp guitar/drum attack that is reminiscent of the Ramones and the first wave of west coast punk. But this record is their shortest, fastest, and meanest one to date- and that's a good thing!

Because the record is out this Friday, Punknews' John Gentile spoke to the band about the LP, the Beatles, and keepin' it DIY. Check it out below.
