Light Your Fire with the Rock n’ Roll Hardcore of PUNTER “A Minute’s Silence” + EU Tour Dates

“PUNTER have gathered for you the best bits from all the shit you thought could never be mates.” I think this sentence perfectly captures the sounds that started infiltrating my brain when I hit play on this Melbourne band’s video for “A Minute’s Silence.” It was like their sounds were coursing through my mind and pulling out strands of ’77 punk, heavy metal drum solos, grunge riffs, and thrash attitude and weaving it into one rocking fucking song! It is a great intro to PUNTER’s new S/T 12″ that’s out now via Drunken Sailor — get it here. They’re about to hit the European roads starting at the Noise Annoys Fest in Sheffield, UK, so check those dates below and show up! Make sure to watch their video for “A Minute’s Silence” and listen to the record because it will fuel your inner fires!

PUNTER have gathered for you the best bits from all the shit you thought could never be mates. And mates they now are, through this strangely original sound. Get fired up to this little rip snorter, showcasing all of the outrage, the desperation, the romance, the sass and the sorrow that a punk band can give – lead breaks, backup vocals and all. Let your heart rate rise to these songs of boredom, stress, fear, youth, death, grief, change, and class politics, all set to the backdrop of the emerging global technocracy, blasted at you from the Aussie suburbs, not least of all Melbourne, the most locked down city on the planet during the time of writing and recording. Should do the trick, I’d say.
