Knuckle Puck aren’t just another punk band on the block, and you’d be foolish to think otherwise. Despite soaking up trickles of attention since the release of their debut album Copacetic, it still feels as though the Chicago outfit are still being sorely overlooked. If you’re a fan of ballsy pop-punk, be sure to leave room in your Slam Dunk schedule for these guys.
Crown The Empire
Crown The Empire have been knocking around for a few years now and, although they’ve had a turbulent time of it where their line-up changes are concerned, their music is one thing that has never been on shaky ground. Let’s be honest, we’re not entirely sure who will actually be in the band by May, but we know we’re looking forward to seeing Crown The Empire – whoever they may be! – and rocking out to them.
It was only last year that fans were, at last, introduced to a full-length release from Trash Boat, in the form of debut album Nothing I Write You Can Change What You’ve Been Through. The fearless pop-punks are some of our very own, and we couldn’t be more pleased to see that they’re getting the recognition they deserve; it may still be early days, but we’re seeing big things for Trash Boat!
