Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new single by Pulling Punches!
"Quiet Suicides" is 83 seconds of berserk, modern hardcore. The band revels is a combustible sound that pulls from the heavy crunching of classic NYHC as well as the spastic volatility heard on those early Dischord classics. But, despite the band's use of the hallmarks, this tune is more modern mashing than it is retrograde rocking.
The song is off their upcoming EP The Old Colors are Dead. It's out February 10 and you can pre-order here. Meanwhile, hear the new track below, right now.Read more

Today, Punknews is very excited to debut the latest weird and wacky video by Crazy and the Brains!

As you may recall, recently, Philadelphia Councilman Mark Squilla introduced a proposed bill that would require certain music venues to record the contact information of performers, report that information to the police, and give Police the opportunity to approve or deny "temporary music licenses." The proposed bill was met derisively across social media as well as in the local Philly press. Well, after a sound thrashing from the community, Squilla has withdrawn his proposed bill. Squilla stated, ""There's been so much confusion and misinformation about the bill that, even if we struck that out, some people would show up to oppose it, not understanding what they were opposing." Though, it's worth noting, that Squilla did not deny that the bill required the collection of personal information and police authorization.Read more
