Tunic, one of Canada’s best new punk bands has breached the surface. The Winnipeg trio are set to release their latest EP, Boss, on July 21st, a corrosive and volatile record that takes the best moments of Metz and The Jesus Lizard and works them into their own artistic brilliance. Loud, aggressive, and often punishing, Tunic thrive on chaos, feedback, and manic bursts of slurred shouting. Lead single “Eye Contact” is a welcome intro, a big grooving blast of gloriously disgusting noise punk energy. The slow motion video is both captivating, mundane, and a bit gross, a nod to the band’s deviant charm. It’s dark and unrelenting but the rhythm section’s hypnotic boogie is impossible to resist.

Pre-Order Boss here.
