Punch, “How Nothing Lasts”

cover-punch-nothing-lastsSan Franciso’s Punch recently signed with Deathwish Inc., who will be releasing their next EP, Nothing Lasts, later this summer. To get you all psyched up for the EP’s release, they’ve posted the title track (or near enough to be), “How Nothing Lasts.”

It hits harder than anything the band’s done to date. If you thought last year’s Push Pull was the auditory equivalent of a blow to the face, this is like getting hit by a car. A release date / pressing info / pre-order date’s yet to be posted, but all that information is forthcoming shortly. In the meantime, play this track over and over, and try not to get all impatient waiting for the whole thing.

Songs like “Awkward Youth” are universal, however: “everything about me is just a little…off” is something to which guys and gals alike can relate.
