Here's Tim Krysko with our International Spotlight:

The featured band on Punk International right now is Belgium's Hitch. A couple years ago Hitch put out an album called Monolith on Divot Records in Chicago, home of their good friends Haymarket Riot. 2004 saw the release of the band's newest album, Trails Are Ablaze [review] on Belgian label Kinky Star. This December the band is celebrating its ten-year anniversary; details can be found in the interview.
