Hunx and His Punx will release Street Punk, the heavy n’ hateful follow-up to 2011’s wistful Too Young To Be In Love album, on July 23 via Hardly Art.
There are have been a few changes in the Hunx World since we last checked in with band main man Seth Bogart. The group has left Oakland for swankier surrounds in Los Angeles, and bassist and powerhouse singer Shannon Shaw is now officially the band’s main woman, splitting songwriting and vocal duties with Seth.
Described in a press release as “Darby Crash on helium” and “the female answer to The Misfits,” Street Punk was recorded with long-time No Age collaborator Facundo Bermudez and features a cover of the Beastie Boys classic “Egg Raid on Mojo” as well as songs about “bad skin, teen angst, social wimpery, trash, isolation, schizophrenia, peroxided delusion, rat parties and vengeance.” Choice song titles include “Everyone’s a Pussy (F*ck You Dude),” “Don’t Call Me Fabulous” and “Born Blonde.”

p.s. Hunx has the BEST MERCH EVER.
