After releasing the excellent Too Young To Be In Love in 2011, Hunx & His Punx is back with the follow-up, Street Punk. The group—now made up of Seth “Hunx” Bogart and Shannon Shaw of Shannon And The Clams—banged out the record in California, combining the diverse but not that different sounds of ‘80s hardcore and ‘90s Riot Grrrl to create their own set of odes to pimples, disaffected youth, and going totally mental.
The record’s not out until July 23, but The A.V. Club has an exclusive stream of the entire LP below. Listen now and pre-order via the Hardly Art site if Street Punk strikes your fancy.
Hunx & His Punx have a number of tour dates scheduled this summer and fall. A full list of dates is below.
