It's Like Bringing A Fork to A GunfightI’m very pleased to announce the release of our first ever release – a free, thirty-five song digital compilation called It’s Like Bringing A Fork To A Gunfight.

The compilation can be downloaded through our Facebook Page in two different formats (a 128kbps version and another where most of the songs are 320kpbs for all those audiophiles out there). To download, you just need to “Like” ThePunksite.com on Facebook. Liking the site will not only enable you download the compilation for free but will also help keep you up to date with what’s been happening in the punk world.

For the release, we teamed up with Paper + Plastick Records, Warbird Entertainment, Union Label Group, No Idea Records (and Southern Lovin’ PR), Sailor’s Grave Records, Kind of Like Records and a few unsigned bands to offer a varied and eclectic mix of bands from all spectrums of the punk rock genre (although, no emo).

There’s some of the best pop-punk of the year courtesy of Mixtapes, The Dopamines, The Arrivals, The Gamits and more. Post-hardcore makes an appearance through The Holy Mountain, Todos Caeran and Fiya along with some melodic hardcore from Make Do And Mend, Protagonist, and Rust Belt Lights. Psychobilly is present through The Brains and The Creepshow while folk punk is in full force thanks to Defiance, Ohio and Audio/Rocketry. Of course, there’s some straight out punk like Harbor 81, Hollowpoints, The Dreadnoughts, and Burning Streets too. Suffice to say, it’s a good mix.

On top of different styles, there are a total of four different countries represented on the compilation: United States, Canada, Germany and Sweden. Alongside many of the American bands, the compilation has a total of eight Canadian acts (The Dreadnoughts, Audio/Rocketry, The Brains, The Sainte Catherines, Feast or Famine, Todos Caeran, Carpenter, and The Creepshow), Small Town Riot comes all the way from Hamburg, Germany and Tommy Gustafsson & The Idiots along with Subwaste both come from Sweden – Strängnäs and Orebro respectively.
