Punknews is excited to once again give you new stuff by Austria's The Mugwumps! Today it is a second new video from the band's upcoming album Clown War Four, which is due out this Friday, November 16th via Monster Zero Records.

The Mugwumps: "Love is Out"

The Mugwumps: “Love is Out”

Punknews is excited to premiere the video for The Mugwumps' new song, "Love is Out." The song is off of the band's new album, Clown War Four, which comes out November 16th on Monster Zero Records. While the track is mid-tempo and catchy, the video hilariously finds the Austrian trio getting the cold shoulder, and worse, throughout- jumped in dark alleys, beer cans thrown at their heads, wet willies… Be sure to keep an eye out for the cameos!

Check out Oakheart's new video “Curse”

Punknews is excited to bring you a new video by Montreal's Oakhearts. The song, "Curse," comes off of the band's self-titled debut LP, which is due out December 2nd on Little Rocket Records.

This quartet, featuring former members of Young & Lost, The Sober Dawn, and The Nils put together an interesting mix of the more emo-ish kind of punk (à la Jawbreaker) with the 80s-90s alternative/shoegazer stylings of The Cure and Swervedriver; all the while putting a dab of straight-up rock into the combo.

The album is currently available for pre-order now, and the band will be playing a hometown release show on the day. You can check out the details of that show after the video below.

Strange Planes: "Darkness Here'

Punknews is excited to premiere a new video from UK rock/punk act Strange Planes. The song, "Darkness Here," comes off of the band's debut LP South of OK, which is due out October 31st on Bad Horror Recordings. Upbeat and melodic, the slightly poppy catchiness of the music and the quirkiness of the video belies the darker nature of the song itself.

Guitarist/vocalist Ellis Slater discusses the origins of the track, and why the video is a lot more light-hearted:

Skiv: "Gumdrop Candy Mountain"

Skiv: “Gumdrop Candy Mountain”

Punknews is excited to premiere a new single/video from UK punk quartet Skiv. The song, "Gumdrop Candy Mountain," is the second track the band has officially released, all part of a build-up to their debut album which is planned for release in early 2019. The video itself features the boys strolling along the beaches of Dover in Kent, and seems pretty innocuous at first. But it is a treat to watch and listen to, and includes a few cameos by members of fellow UK acts Swan Prince and Skaciety.

Skiv will be playing tomorrow night with Millie Manders and the Shutup, King Punch in London. You can check out the new video, as well as details of tomorrow's gig, below.

Mean Caesar debut new video "South London Summer"

Mean Caesar debut new video “South London Summer”

Punknews is incredibly excited to premiere the first music from London quintet Mean Caesar in the form a new video, "South London Summer." The track comes off of the band's debut, self-titled EP, which is due out October 5th on Little Rocket Records.

Mean Caesar has been described as a cross between Leatherface and Samiam, and features musicians, both ex- and current, of a bevy of bands across the UK (way too many to go into here). Needless to say, there is a lot of experience under this band's belt, and it shows in their song-writing and composition.

Having had the chance to preview the EP in full, I can only say the description above is spot-on. "South London Summer" is a perfect example of this, with the sound being both chunky and playful at the same time, and a vocal cadence that evokes Jason Beebout on his best day.

Vocalist David Webster has this to say about the song:

Check out the new video by Billy Moon!

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Billy Moon!

"DWTBA" finds Moon doing what Moon does best- hazy, fuzzed out punk. He takes the blissed out grit of bands like King Tuff and Wavves and slides a little new wave sheen over the top. Speaking to Punknews about the track, Moon said, "This is for every night where I’ve ever gone out and said, 'I could have just stayed home and read a book tonight. Why didn’t I just do that?' This is sort of that third year of college point in a person’s life where you realize that you don’t have a lot in common with a lot of your friends and that you’re stuck going to places you hate, to do things you don’t want to do, to impress people that you don’t like and prospective romantic partners that you can’t talk to. It’s a real bummer, but it happens."

Moon's debut LP, Punk Songs, comes out September 14th via Old Flame Records. Check out his new video below, right now!

As vocalist/guitarist Rachel Blewett notes below, that same tack was taken for the video itself:
