Family Pet: "Family Pet" (Punknews Exclusive)

Family Pet: “Family Pet” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Family Pet.

On their self-titled track, the band takes lo-fi, high energy garage punk and push it to its gnarliest limits. But, that's no coincidence- Colleen Green produced the song. In fact, this jam is so revved up and grimey it gives the Spits a run for their money. Meanwhile, in the video, frontwoman Kate Dwyer channels the bouffant of Tammy Faye Bakker while several computer animation programs have nervous breakdowns behind her- all while addressing the concept of what is "normal" in the modern American household. This song frikkin' RIPS, people.

Speaking to Punknews, the band said said, "We like incorporating pieces fetishizing imagery into our videos. Initially, we were looking for extreme growth 3D videos to use as footage. We stumbled into the world of GAMEGIRLPOWER which is a channel of muscular woman doing everything from dancing, lifting, housework etc. We were able to connect with the artist via DeviantArt, they based a muscle girl after Kate's look and the rest is history!"

Their new release Petty is out October 20. Before that, check out the wigged out video for "Family Pet" below, right now!

Shirley D. Pressed streaming new LP “Rust” (Punknews Exclusive)

Punknews is extremely excited to premiere the entire new LP Rust from German melodic punks Shirley D. Pressed. This fairly new band, with just a rough demo from 2014 under their belt, have put together a ferocious and energetic full-length that is sure to please fans of the late-90s Epitaph Records/Fat Wreck Chords sound. Replete with high-tempo beats, breakneck guitars, and more backing vocals than you could ever wish for, Shirley D. Pressed comes roaring out of the gate.

The street date for the album is this Friday, July 21st, via Thousand Island Records, but you can take a listen to it all right now. If you like what you hear, be sure to head over to their Bandcamp page to pre-order the album.

But, Pyrite stream entire new LP “Piss”

NYC's But, Pyrite have released their new LP, Piss, as a name-your-price download via their Bandcamp page. The album, which I'd best describe as 80s hardcore meets snot punk, packs twelve songs into a sub-20 minute album. This is the band's second LP, and a follow-up to 2015's Don't Wanna Eat it Dry.

The band will also be playing a quick tour of the eastern and Midwest USA, including an album release show on the first night in Ridgewood, NY. Some of those dates are still TBA, so be sure to check But, Pyrite's social media channels for more info closer to the dates.

In the meantime, you can check out the track "Loop Swoop Pull" from the new album, and those tour dates, below.

Leland Sundries: “Greyhound From Reno” (Punknews Exclusive)

>Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new short film by Leland Sundries!

The film for "Greyhound from Reno" is dark, trippy, and mega-creepy. There's witchcraft, chains, and a ghost-mask-faced cult. Fittingly, the band crosses a Bauhaus-style dread with the gnarly edge of 90s grunge.

The new album is called Music for Outcasts. You can buy that here. Meanwhile, check out the video below, right now!
