Punch's new album, They Don't Have to Believe, is now streaming in full. As lead track "Worth More Than Your Opinion" made clear, it's a riff-packed release of aggression from the Bay Area punks with links to Loma Prieta, one full of fastcore blasts crashing head-on into hardcore stomps and punk gallops. Above it all, Meghan O'Neil unleashes her frustration, screaming lyrics both cathartic and empowering. The album will available via Deathwish Inc -- who are dropping the Coliseum remaster we premiered a video from today -- on August 19 and it's available for preorder now.

You can catch Punch on tour this September. They'll be swinging into NYC's Death By Audio on September 7 with Curmudgeon, Crushed, and Water Torture, who are also streaming a brand new album in full.
