Hardcore Band from Washington, D.C.
Close your eyes and think back to that feeling you had when you first mastered riding a bike. Feel like a badass? Cemetery Vacation, the debut LP from Washington DC’s Walk the Plank, will leave you feeling charged up and ready to take on the world. Coming from one of the most storied scenes in the history of punk rock, Walk the Plank have managed to release a record that lives up to that great tradition without stooping to clichés or living in nostalgia. At times anthemic and at other times rough around the edges like a broken bottle, Cemetery Vacation captivates to its very core. Think driving rhythms, earnestly gruff vocals, and buzzing guitars with harmonized leads, and you’ve got the idea.
American hardcore-punk band from New Jersey.
Based on a steady diet of 80s hardcore and prescription pills, School Drugs exists somewhere between your initial high and impending purge.
Ruin by Design is a punk band from Northern Virginia featuring Brien Stewart on vocals, Andrew Blitch on bass, Brent Smith on guitar, and Kurt Foster on drums.
It comes to us from none other than Jared Hart, probably best known for his role as frontman of Garden State punk band The Scandals. He released his first solo album, Past Lives & Pass Lines, a couple years back and went on tour both as a member of Brian Fallon’s band, The Crowes, and as a solo artist, where he performed alongside the likes of Frank Iero, Cory Branan and a bunch more. While on those shows, he had the occasion to perform a few of his solo songs alongside a full band, and got the bug to re-record some of the more standout tracks with a band in a studio setting. The result? A four-song EP called Past Life Regression…which is not only officially out today, but is officially available for “pay-what-you-want”
