Couple Hundo : “Prescription Sunglasses” (Punknews Exclusive)

We are super happy to bring to you the latest music video for Brooklyn based Couple Hundo. The song is called "Prescription Sunglasses". The track is taken from their self-released EP titled Have A Great Summer. The band would describe themselves by saying:

"I'd say we're going for a Leatherface covered by Archers of Loaf sound. Three guys that have been in bands around Long Island and Brooklyn for a long time. And one girl from Philadelphia that plays in a bunch of things now."

You can click here to pick up their debut EP on blue vinyl.

Cables & Arms: “Hang the Moon” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut “Hang the Moon,” a new video from SF post-hardcore punks Cables & Arms!

"Hang the Moon" is moodily melodic, the video portraying an anxious Promethean struggle with a sound that is a complimentary nod to the melodic hardcore scene of the late '00s, but all grown up.
“Hang the Moon” is featured on Cables & Arms’ debut album, Framing Defeat for the Critical Eye, out now via Wiretap Records. You can check out the video below, and pick up a copy of Framing Defeat for the Critical Eye on white vinyl here.

Space Raft: "Paper Airplanes" (Punknews Exclusive)

Space Raft: “Paper Airplanes” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Space Raft!

"Paper Airplanes" is a trippy little number that borrows from Britpop, garage rock, and glam. The video is suitably weird, featuring a 1950s spaceman traversing a weird landscape just as the band traverses those early LSD influenced genres. At once, the song is innocent and weathered, saluting and tearing down the culture that would eventually give rise to Elton, Lou, and David.

The song is off their recently released single out now via Dusty Medical Records. They'll have a full length called Rubicon out soon. Check out the new video below, right now.

Preview of  'Rebel Scum'

Preview of 'Rebel Scum'

Today, Punknew is presenting a clip from Rebel Scum, the DVD which chronicles the trials and tribulations of Knoxville's The Dirty Works.

Not so much a history of the band as a study in self-destructive behavior, the film follows the band as they collapse under the weight of depression and drug usage. Producer Francis Percarpio spoke to Punknews about the film:

"This scene took place after Christopher Scum went off on an alcoholic bender following an altercation with The Dirty Works' drummer (and fellow alpha male) Bernard. Some how he wound up in a dive motel that had, coincidentally, served as our headquarters/crash pad while shooting in Knoxville. We managed to help Christopher vacate the premises mere minutes before the police arrived to arrest him."

The video is out November 24 and you can pre-order here. You can see a clip from the film below, but beware, it is not for the faint-of-heart.

War On Women

War On Women: “Say It” (Punknews Exclusive)

Punknews is very proud to debut the new video by War On Women.

"Say It," which is off the band's fantastic self-titled album, deals with the important topic of sexual assault. Frontwoman Shawna Potter spoke to Punknews about the video:

"For this video we wanted to highlight the work of The Monument Quilt Project, which is based in our hometown of Baltimore, as well as give local survivors of sexual assault and rape an opportunity to sing along with us, without shame or stigma.

Shooting this video was an incredibly moving experience for everyone in the band. We know that not all victims have the opportunity to speak out about their experiences, or are shamed when they do. For people who are ready to speak out, or need to, we hope this song can be a safe way to say 'I was raped' out loud. You're not alone."

The album is out now on Bridge Nine Records and you can check out the video below.

Crazy and the Brains: "Syreita" (Punknews Exclusive)

Crazy and the Brains: “Syreita” (Punknews Exclusive)

Punknews is absolutely thrilled to debut the new video by Crazy and the Brains.

In case you didn't know, Crazy and the Brains are fivedudes that make spastic, wild, wacky, punk that sometimes dips into surprisingly dark waters. They also have a xylophone in the band and it is great. The video for "Syreita" opens with frontman Chris Urban getting a glass bottle smashed in his face and then somehow segues to ski-masked ballet dancers storming a rooftop party. That is the perfect visualization for this band's music.

The track is off Good Lord [EP] , out on Baldy Longhair. Check it out.

Rubikon: "Vipers"

Rubikon: “Vipers”

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new song by Rubikon.

Mastodon and Torche may have made thundering heavy metal cool again (thankfully), but, little did people know, Rubikon has been paying tribute to the almighty southern riff since 2000. On "Vipers," the band takes a firm grasp of classic '70s metal and drags it into the current day. Propelled by a swinging chords and stomping drums, the tune gives slight nods to ZZ Top, Nazareth and Sabbath. If you wear a denim vest with the sleeves cut off, you will dig this.

The tune is off the band's upcoming album, Delta, out August 21. You can pre-order here. Meanwhile, you can hear the new tune below.

Class of 86: “Phase Change”

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Class of 86. The video is for the tune "Phase Change."

In the video, the band tears through some mid-'80s-inspired skate punk and crossover thrash during the most sacred of all shows, the glorious house show. But, during the revelry, one party-goer finds that he doesn't quite fit in with the group and gets booted from the house. He makes his way back home and well… Stephen King would dig this.

You can order the Future on Fire album at Paper + Plastick right here. Meanwhile, you can watch the video below.

Dead on TV: "Screwdriver"

Dead on TV: “Screwdriver”

Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Dead on TV. It's called "Screwdriver" and it's off the EP Creeper.

Between their nihilistic edge, high cheek bones and riffs based in blues-punk, the band takes cues from bands like The Dead Boys and The Pagans. "Screwdriver" is a slow burning number that swims in a dark, buzzing riff while vocalist Daniel Evans sings like he's just woken up from a rough… week… Stiv would be proud.

Creeper is out now and you can order it here. Meanwhile, you can see the new video below.

Los Seis Pistos: "Punk Will Never Die"

Los Seis Pistos: “Punk Will Never Die”

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Los Seis Pistos. Based out of Chihuahua, Mexico, the band has made a name for themselves by blending together the different aspects of first wave punk. There's a little Ramones-core here, a little Clash worship there, some straight up rock n' roll over yonder, and of course, a few nods to another band that might have ripped of this band's name. But, when all of that is filtered through this unique cultural perspective, the band is something elese, entirely.

The track is off the album of the same name, out now. You can hear the new single, below.
