Watch: Knuckle Puck - Disdain

Knuckle Puck give hope to the future of pop-punk with first track from new album Copacetic.

If Knuckle Puck’s new track Disdain is a sign of the direction that pop-punk is heading in, there’s some serious life in the genre yet. The Chicago-based up-and-comers are due to drop their debut full-length Copacetic on the July 31, following their three EPs in Don't Come Home, The Weight That You Buried and While I Stay Secluded. The five-piece from Illinois have just released a video for Disdain, our first taste of Copacetic. From the massive intro and sharp opening lines: "I've got a lot to talk about/my disdain for the Pacific threw my name into distant mouths", it’s clear that Knuckle Puck mean business with this album.

Boasting heavier guitars, angrier vocals, intricate riffs and pounding drum fills; this is not the kind of pop-punk that so many of us mended broken hearts to in high school. Both musically and lyrically, this is a far more mature brand of music. The Story So Far has been doing something similar for a while now, but it’s rad to see bands embracing the heavier sound and putting their own unique spin on it.

Copacetic is out on July 31 through Rise Records. Watch the brand new video for Disdain below:
