Counterpunch announce new single via Thousand Islands Records and SBÄM Records

Chicago’s melodic punk rock darlings Counterpunch return with a new single. Delivering a patented blend of potent harmonies, the first single ‘Waiting in the Wings’ showcases exactly what they do best, ushering in a new era for the punk rock stalwarts.

“Waiting in the Wings” is a political statement to the people in the U.S.: “The song at it’s core is about speaking truth to power and having strength in numbers with your fellow man, not backing down when a moreal compass is not headed in the right direction”, states Counterpunch’s singer Eric Hausser.
Counterpunch is a four piece powerhouse that has been bringing their own catchy brand of melodic punk rock since 2004.

Following the release of their self-titled debut in 2004 under their own imprint Punch-It Records (alternatively titled ‘An Idiot’s Guide to Being an Asshole’ under Radtone Records in Japan) the band began their journey into both the US and international markets. Touring both domestically and abroad brought them opportunities to play alongside Rise Against, Strung Out, and Pennywise amongst other stalwarts in the genre.

2011 saw the band release their second LP, titled ‘An Idiot’s Guide to Being an World’ (alternatively titled ‘Heroes and Ghosts’ under several international labels) with Go Kart Records. Multiple European tours and festival stops later, the band was ready to step into the studio with Matt Allison to record 2014’s ‘Bruises’.

Released in 2014 by Cyber Tracks Records, this release saw the bands most extensive touring regimen to date. Hitting the road alongside the likes of Face to Face, Strung Out, NOFX, The Living End, Good Riddance and more brought them in front of their largest audiences to date.
