By Lee Jackson

Our weekly guest playlist man Lee Jackson is back with another ten tracks to get your week off to a loud start. As ever, these tracks have been added to the previous selections – check the full playlist out below.

The Hard Aches – ‘Brain Drain’

The melodic punk duo from Adelaide released this new single a few weeks back and are currently on tour all over Australia in support. One of the catchiest bands around at the moment; killer melodies.

The Dopamines – ‘Ire’

‘Ire’ is taken from The Dopamines new album, ‘Tales Of Interest’. Upbeat, modern punk rock with hooks galore. Dig deep in to these guys’ back catalogue – you won’t regret it!

Terrible Love – ‘Doubt Mines’

Based all across the South East of the UK are Terrible Love. One of the isles’ most exciting new punk/hardcore bands. Having been picked up by Big Scary Monsters, a new EP is on it’s way in January. Keep a close eye on these.

Cold Wrecks – ‘Therapy’

Cold Wrecks, from Brooklyn NY, describe themselves as “Dad rock for pop-punkers, pop-punk for emo kids, emo for dads.” I couldn’t put it any better. Their fantastic new split EP with Trash Boyz is out now through Brighter Days Records.

Stick To Your Guns – ‘The Better Days Before Me’

One of the realest, hardest touring modern hardcore bands are back with their new album, ‘True View’, out now through End Hits Records. Hardcore with a real message. Catch them on tour in the UK before the end of the year.

Rise Against – ‘House On Fire’

The Chicago punk legends are back in the UK this month, supporting their new record, ‘Wolves’. 11 tracks of trademark, politically-infused punk rock.

The Dirty Nil – ‘No Weaknesses’

After winning everyone’s hearts on every festival in the UK and Europe this summer, The Dirty Nil have been on my stereo relentlessly since, and should be on yours too. The Canadian trio are loud, swaggy and know how to write a tune. Awesome.

Pizzatramp – ‘Pollyticks’

These riffy, rapid thrash-punks are causing quite a stir in the DIY punk scene. The trio from South Wales have a handful of releases out now through TNS / Plasterer Records. Catch them on tour around the UK over the next few weeks.

Guillotine – ‘Sapphire’

These chaps, signed to Failure By Design have just come off a full UK tour with Brutus. This tune has been rattling around my head since its release late last year. These guys are destined for big things.

Such Gold – ‘Ceiling Stare’

Such Gold are one of the most under-rated bands in punk rock. Having smashed it for years all over the world, punk label Bird Attack Records picked them up. The new EP, ‘Deep In A Hole’ is out now. Riffs, killer melodies and relentless pace.
