NYC Punks, All In Due time are set to release their new EP. “Young And Dumb” on March 22, 2019. This 5 track EP is packed with lyrics that connect on a powerful emotional level. My favorite is by far, “Young And Dumb”. I can see this one hitting the pop charts. It resonates on a personal level for me. Coming in second would be, “Still Breathing(NaNa)”. Both songs have catchy lyrics, while “Still Breathing(NaNa)” comes in a bit harder.
So give a listen to “Fairytale” below and subscribe to their Spotify for EP drop emails!

On 2/10/2019 the first Kids Are Alright show went off like a rocket at Goosetown Tavern. If you missed it be sure and check out some pics and videos below of on our page. The talent from these bands just blew me away. This was also my first introduction to Denver based hardcore punks, Tuck Knee. We reviewed Almataha’s, “Kill The Leaders” back on 4/5/2018. Reviews for AFD and Neutral Thought will be coming in the future.
Why did I choose to write about Tuck Knee today? As soon as they stepped on stage. I felt thrown back into the 80’s hardcore scene. A powerful time in punk rock, as the American punk subculture was telling the establishment to fuck off. I felt a strong sense of pride throughout their set. I kept thinking, “Damn Denver, you’re one lucky city!” So today I ran over to their bandcamp and picked up their singles here, https://tuckkneeband.bandcamp.com/.
By the way all of their songs are currently “Name Your Own Price”, but be sure to drop at least $1 per song, so they can record more music! Keep in mind some of these videos taken are not great as the pit was pretty insane. Plus it was hard to film when I just wanted to mosh.
So let’s check out some songs!
They Way I Feel – I love the riffs, drums , and Ashmore’s vocals on this one!
Habit – This song is 1:17 seconds long, its angry, hardcore at its finest!
P.S.A – The message of this song. Don’t be an ass in the pit!
Can’t Stand For It – Per Bandcamp, “not the final version of this track full EP will be recorder in studio. Feb 2019”. I cannot wait to hear the final if this is the first!
Let me wrap this up. With 4 songs released I cannot wait to get my ear holes on some new material. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this band.

Rarely can a recording capture the energy and attitude that a punk band demonstrates live, but I think this album has done it! On tracks like “Let Them Eat Guillotines” and “MMIW”, Sinister Pig trade vocals and phrases between members. This release is full of enthusiastic backing vocals that support the lead vocals, truly getting their message across. This is not music for the faint of heart. It’s political, impulsive, motivating, honest, and kicks your brain into thinking about the world around you. It touches on subjects that only a few bands are brave enough to discuss through their art; such as classism, societal pressures, fascism, residual economic issues leftover from the Reagan era, capitalism, and personal isolation.
Musically, the band is in great form! Always in the pocket, the drums and bass lay a driving, pulsing, energetic rhythmic landscape for the guitars to shred over, and do they shred! The bass and guitar often have licks that work beautifully together, complimenting each other in unison or in contrary motion, while the vocals sit perfectly on top of the guitar parts. The lead vocalist encapsulates the rage and disdain many people feel about the current state of political affairs, while also maintaining a personal feeling…not an easy combination to attain.
Overall, I love this album! Sinister Pig truly practices what they preach, and this album illustrates their beliefs very clearly. Listen to it, and listen to it loud!

On that note we get a ton of pop punk review requests. Don’t get me wrong I love me some good pop punk, but sometimes you just need some good street punk in your lives. You need the energetic, fuck the establishment, pure and raw sound. Melbourne punks, Dead Already are doing just that with their latest release, “Gilded Age Of Piss”.
This EP is non stop train of old school classic punk straight out the back alleys of Melbourne. With songs like, ‘Nervous Wreck’, ‘This Machine Empowers Facists’ and ‘Darkness Glows’ I find myself fist pumping inside my office. My boss is probably thinking I’ve gone mental. Oh well fuck him anyway. So if you need something to accommodate an angry outburst, socially powerful, Dead Already’s, “Gilded Age Of Piss” is exactly the EP you NEED.
