a guide to the best up-and-coming punk music from the Northeast Coast scenes
25Preachy Cunt

KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE PREACHY CUNT DEMO CASSETTE COMING LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER 2016 ON SNOT ROCKET RECORDS! FFO: Pitboss 2000, E. Town Concrete, Inside Out
24Anxiety Hammer
What Stands Between Us


Critically-lauded Philly band, and one of the best live acts on this list. FFO: Token Entry, Gang Green, Jerry's Kids
23NYC Headhunters
Demo


One of the most buzzed about NYHC bands of the past year or so. FFO: Judge, Social Damage, Harm Done
22I.C.E.
Demo


DCHC act taking cues from classic NYHC bands. FFO: Madball, Merauder, 25 ta Life
21Jesus Piece
Jesus Piece


Philly beatdown kings. Murder mosh. FFO: Terror Zone, Bulldoze, Brutality Will Prevail
20Blood Pressure
Need To Control


Ripping NJHC that comes full force and does not relent until everything within earshot is decimated. FFO: One to One, Rivers Divided, Cro-Mags
19Night Trip
Night Trip


Laid back Philly alt/punk tunes made by some super swell fellas. FFO: Beach Slang, Dry Feet, Case Race
18Soda Bomb
Wanna Jam?


Long Island melodic punk band, carrying on the storied tradition of their homestead. FFO: Latterman, Iron Chic, Get Bent
17Sweet Jesus
You Destroy Yourself


Pat Flynn's post-Have Heart band. Thoughtful, toe-tapping MAHC. FFO: Have Heart, Burn, Soul Control
16Guttersnipe
Pain From The Pines


One of the finest examples of modern southern NJHC. FFO: Old Wounds, Black Kites, Adrenalin O.D.
15Westpoint
Dive


Wilkes-Barre, PA has long been an unsung breeding ground for some of the best hardcore in North America, but Westpoint is a band from that town of a different breed. FFO: Turnover, Title Fight, Superheaven
14Firewalker
Demo


Firewalker is a new Boston-based hardcore band, featuring Sophie, of Leather Daddy fame, on vocals. FFO: Punch, Leather Daddy, G.L.O.S.S.
13Tomboy
Sweetie


Sugary-sweet power pop jams from Philly. This LP was produced by Will Killingsworth, of Orchid, Vaccine, etc. fame. FFO: Supercrush, The Number Ones, Sheer Mag
12Vicious Embrace
The Heavens Tremble


This is the post-what-should-be-final-name-change debut EP of my cousins' Aaron and Andrew's Newark, DE-based metallic hardcore band. FFO: Earth Crisis, Ringworm, Crucified
11Fuck It...I Quit
Demo 2016


The latest band to join the tree of seminal NJHC legends Ensign, FI...IQ is in their own words "a bunch of young guys...and one old guy" making hardcore that deserves to be experienced. FFO: Ensign, Vision, Low Threat Profile
10Blazing Eye
Ways To Die


Absolutely vicious Japanese hardcore played by New York punks. Just destructive. FFO: Kriegshog, Gauze, SOB
9Nuclear Age (DC)
The Distinct Sounds Of...


If Priests is DC's best current band, and people still won't acknowledge Give, then Nuclear Age would come in a close second. FFO: Government Warning, Faith, Coke Bust
8Red Death
Permanent Exile


Excellent crossover band hailing in equal parts from DC and Richmond. FFO: Leeway, Crumbsuckers, Guilty
7Foxfires
Pinetum


The post-Four Year Strong project of Josh Lyford, who handles lead vocal and principal songwriting duties for this Worcester, MA based melodic hardcore band. Easily a cut above most hardcore bands lyrically. Keep an eye out for my review of this, their long overdue debut LP. FFO: Manners, Ruiner, Just Die!
6JJ Doll
Demo


From the ashes left from the sudden demise of IVY rose JJ Doll, one of NYHC's most eclectic and personable new acts. FFO: IVY, Brown Sugar, Cheena
5No Parole
E.P.


No Parole is a frenetic NJHC band featuring members of several other prominent NJHC acts. Eagerly anticipating a full-length from them. FFO: Altered Boys, Sickoids, Crazy Spirit
4Aseptic
Death is Their Currency


This Philly band is the new standard bearer for the city's grossly underdeveloped d-beat scene. FFO: Absolut, Dishammer, Disobey
3Priests
Tape 2


There's a strong consensus amongst DC punks that this is the best current band from their city. While I would argue the case for Give, it's hard to deny the power of this band's staunchly political lyrics. FFO: Pleasure Leftists, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Terrible Feelings
2Timebomb
No Values


This Philly by-way-of Cape May or Cape May by-way-of Philly hardcore band features a couple good friends of mine, and has had the distinct pleasure of playing This Is Hardcore the last few years. FFO: Right Brigade, Good Times, Youth Brigade
1The Guests
Red Scare '15


Philadelphia deathrock/jangle pop, featuring the Seely brothers of Sheer Mag. This 4 song tape is essentially the closest anyone's ever come to emulating The Smiths. "Third Coming" was easily one of the best punk songs of 2015. FFO: Book of Love, The Smiths, Mercury Girls
