We signed a band and they rule!

Long Knives Promo Picture

So excited to welcome Long Knives to the family! Long Knives are a four-piece band, hailing from Oakland, CA. They write catchy indie/emo/pop, with strong female and male call and response vocals and driving music that doesn’t let up. Think bands like Hot Rod Circuit, Rainer Maria, and The Get Up Kids

You can hear a song from their debut EP “This is Your Life” at AbsolutePunk.net right now:

Then you can pre-order the 7″, along with a super cool shirt, at our webstore: http://countyourluckystars.bigcartel.com/

Expect their full length later this year, as well as a bunch of cool things to come.
