BandRock

Chicago’s pride and joy, Counterpunch have been belting ‘em out since 2004. Their catchy brand of punk is an infectious blend of pop and hardcore, lyrically tackling an array of personal politics.

Biography

We're a four piece punk rock powerhouse from Chicago. We like to say we have some tight, melodic, and catchy tunes. Oh those sweet sweet melodies.....

Our songs run the gamut from political rants to relationship quarrels, and every listener has something they can sink their teeth into. Whether you prefer the fast melodic styles of songs like Seventeen, the mid tempo hooks of Your Leap Year, or the in your face punk rock styles of Blue State Blues and Tear It Down, there's a little love for every listener.

With a Japanese release on RadTone Records already in place, our self-titled/self released debut came out stateside June 19th. Packed with eleven tracks of face rocking punk, this CD grips you from start to finish and everywhere in between. It's a relevant and challenging commentary on our current social climate, accompanied with a few songs that offer insight into personal issues that affect us all. Add to that some fun, lighter songs about relationship quarrels or Jared's take on menopause, and you have an idea of what this album has to offer; everything.

We've shared the stage with the likes of Rise Against, A Wilhelm Scream, Local H, Flogging Molly and so many more. Every show gives us an opportunity to raise our voice, entertain, and inspire. We'll be seeing you soon!

Discography

Our S/T debut full length is set to be unleashed late summer 2007. Tracks are already hitting college airwaves!
