stream Struckout’s ripping noise-punk self-titled LP
Long Beach punks Struckout have been at it for a few years (they have releases dating back to 2013), and if you’re on the West Coast, you may have seen them share bills with bands like Glassjaw or Jeff Rosenstock. They’re releasing their third album, which is self-titled, this Friday (7/20) via Postmark Records (pre-order). They made the album with producer Jack Shirley (who’s worked with Deafheaven, Loma Prieta, Jeff Rosenstock, Joyce Manor, and more), and a full stream of it premieres in this post.
Aside from having awesome song tiles like “Accrued Vacation Days (Daniel Listens To Krautrock Once),” “I Kind Of Think Emo Music Is Fucking Pointless,” and “We’ve Tried Nothing And We’re All Out Of Ideas,” Struckout has eight tracks of awesome, ripping, noisy punk that fans of other Jack Shirley collaborators will surely dig. There’s bits of all kinds of familiar music, like The Jesus Lizard’s swampy post-hardcore, more experimental stuff like Slint or Sonic Youth, raging grunge-punk like Nirvana’s faster songs, and more, but Struckout bring all these familiar sounds together and come out with something that feels fresh. It’s a really fun record, and you can hear it for yourself below.
Struckout are going on a short Northeast tour with Dreamwell in August, including a Ridgewood, NY show on 8/25 at The Footlight. That show also has Half Human, Free Money and Kew on the bill, and $10 at the door gets you in. All dates are listed on the tour poster below.
