STINKY’s “Distance,” out June 12 on Of Lost Things via M-Theory Audio, is a relatable, lovable ballad about just that.

“Distance” is a declaration of friendship for all of those who, despite distancing and time passing, never stopped being a reliable beacon. The music video is a recollection of the good times when the lockdown and social distancing weren’t a topic.”

While the band’s name might seem curious to some, STINKY’s music unquestionably passes the smell test. Influenced by the likes of Comeback Kid, Bane, Miles Away, and Champion, the band capably fuses melody with an affinity for violence, making the quintet a combustible mix of energy and aggression.

Since their formation a decade ago, STINKY has played more than 350 concerts across 15 different countries in support of their first two albums, 2015’s “Against Wind and Tide” and 2017’s “From Dead-End Street.” Along the way, the group has shared the stage with the likes of Sick Of It All, Terror, Walls of Jericho and Millencolin.
