ABSOLUTExclusive: Knuckle Puck Song Premiere

Posted by - 12:16 PM on 08/27/13
As bands like The Story So Far and Man Overboard have risen to the top of the pop-punk totem pole, it's becoming harder and harder for bands to gain traction while presenting a straightforward take on the genre. Currently, Real Friends is proving that you don't have to rewrite the rules to make an impact on young music listeners...but today we have a song stream from a band that I think could follow and exceed that mold. Knuckle Puck delivers a melodic, crunchy offering of a sound that we're all familiar with. It took me a few listens of their new EP, The Weight That You Buried, which drops September 3, to see past the first few layers of their sound. But I think fans of the genre can find something endearing here, not just because the music is familiar, but because Knuckle Puck brings to light a freshness and rawness that can be appreciated on its own merit. You can stream "Stateside" from the EP in the replies and pre-order The Weight That You Buried in the band's webstore.

I'm not seeing how The Story So Far or Man Overboard are not straightforward pop punk.

Man Overboard is an overrated cheese fest. Can't seem to find the attraction to that band.
