Knuckle PuckOct2014Chicago pop punks Knuckle Puck are streaming a new track. Pretense will feature on their upcoming debut LP, Copacetic, due for release on July 31st via Rise Records. Guitarist Nick Casasanto said this about the LP’s title:

“When we thought of the album title, we thought it was a way to say, ‘OK, here’s an album of things I’m upset about and hurt over…but at the end of the day, everything’s fine, everything’s copacetic, because you have to look at what you do have. I think it’s important, especially in this scene, not to magnify depression and wear it like a badge. You should use music to feel better.”
