Few bands have the lasting power to survive five years, let alone a milestone of twenty. Tick on your fingers the number of bands you can think of off the top of your head. While you were racking your brain trying to recall that tidbit of information, did you remember Jersey’s punk-rockers, The Bouncing Souls? The Bouncing Souls have a lasting power in the punk scene for a variety of reasons, be it their head nod to Doc Martens with their band name or their avoidance of a mainstream record label in lieu of starting their own label, Chunksaah, or their incomparable sound.
The Bouncing Souls blended a hybrid of punk, funk, metal, and whatever the hell else they wanted in their earlier years. Now they’ve got it settled into their own punk sound. Eight studio albums, twelve EPs, and a slew of singles later, the band is gearing up to release their ninth studio album, Comet, on June 12, 2012. If you’re ready to don your Martens and riot, you know what to do. Get that ticket in your hand. Hell, the link’s above so there’s no excuse to miss out.
