Let's just say it: Sean Rule is an emotional guy. The drummer chokes up several times during his interview. But, the thing is, he's in the hyper fast, hyper bombastic Plow United. Rule might be quick to the water works, and maybe he's an introspective guy, but the band plays so fast and so loud, these deep musings blast your skull off like something from Wild in the Street.
Never has this been more apparent than on the trio's new album, Three . It's fast. It's loud. It rocks. And it has has some pretty heavy commentary on the human condition. With all that in mind, Editor John Gentile spoke to Rule about the new LP, his Queen obsession, and being a pops-punk-rocker.Read more

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new tune by Drunk Couples!
"Raisin’ Hell In The Holy City” is a frikkin monster of rock. The tune kicks off with a mosh worthy, grinding riff before glass-and-tar vocals cut through the mess. Lemmy might be dead, but his progeny live on, singing about taking acid, killing people, and trans-morphing into Satan himself.
The song is from the band's debut LP, Blasted!, due out June 17th via Bob Records. Check out this ass-kicker below.Read more
