Lee Jackson selects another ten tracks for the week

By Lee Jackson

Pianos Become The Teeth – ‘Charisma’

The Baltimore quintet have shared the first single from their upcoming new album ‘Wait For Love’, out in February through Epitaph Records. Was this going to be anything but epic?

Jaya The Cat – ‘Amsterdam’

Jaya The Cat have solidified themselves as one of the best reggae-punk bands in the world. ‘Amsterdam’, written about their home town, is taken from ‘A Good Day For The Damned’, which hits stores this Friday. Catch them on tour in the UK in a few weeks time.

Every Time I Die – ‘No Son Of Mine’

Every Time I Die are back on this side of the pond and currently smashing their way around the UK and Europe right now, with one of the hardest tour packages ever put together. ‘No Son Of Mine’ is taken from ‘The Big Dirty’ which turned 10 years old in September.

Daisyhead – ‘Common Ground’

The Nashville emo-quartet kick off their UK and EU tour in just a few days. Catch them on the road with Sibling at your local venue. ‘Common Ground’ is taken from ‘In Case You Missed It’, which is out now through No Sleep Records.

Onsind – ‘Immature’

Onsind are gearing up for the release of their new album ‘We Wilt We Bloom’ through Specialist Subject on Friday. Fantastic jangly, alternative punk with a distinctive Northern-English twang.

Clowns – ‘Destroy The Evidence’

These Melbourne-based hardcore/punks have spent the last couple of years hitting every corner of the UK and European underground scene and have really made a name for themselves as ones to watch. Keep a look out for new UK tour dates in 2018 – you want to catch these live.

Lionheart – ‘Shelter’

Having just released their new album, ‘Welcome To The West Coast II’ through Fast Break! Records, the Californian mosh crew kick off their extensive European tour in just a few days. Stick it on. Bang your head.

Giants – ‘Did It Mean So Much To You’

These London based skate-hardcore-punks are bringing an end to the band in a months time – December 14 – at The Old Blue Last, London. One of the truest punk bands from the isle, who weren’t afraid to work hard for their art. Will be a huge loss to the scene.

Smile And Burn – ‘Not Happy’

The Berliners released their ‘Get Better Get Worse’ album at the end of 2016 and it’s been all uphill since. Having played almost every festival and a hugely successful headline tour, 2018 is looking to be even bigger and better for the quintet. Clever, catchy and will be stuck in your head for days.

The Swellers – ‘2009’

I’ve had a bit of a binge on The Swellers this week. Unfortunately, they split up a few years back, but it’s well worth digging in to their back catalogue. An absolutely fantastic melodic punk rock band.
