Melodic punk band from the West Coast of the United States.
Adding improvisational skills and a complex structure to their fast paced, three chord abrasives, Cigar stood out amongst the punk crowd in which they were apart of since their 1996 origin. Formed in Eugene, Oregon by Big Jon (drums), Jason (bass) and Rami (vocals/ guitar), the three took the name of Cigar and eventually relocated to San Diego, California in 1998; but not before playing with the likes of A.F.I., Pennywise, Blink-182, D.I. and Rancid. Following their move, Theologian Records took notice and immediately released their full-length debut Speed is Relative in 1999. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi
Drunktank brings you fast, melodic and singalong ’90 skatepunk with a pinch of 80’s metal.
Drunktank brings you fast, melodic, sing-along 90’s skatepunk in the tradition of Epitaph, Fat Wreck Chords and Burning Heart bands, combined with riffs and guitar harmonics from 80’s metal. The Dutch skatepunkers started in 2003 and released four EP’s and two full-length albums “The Infamous Four” (2010) and “Return of The Infamous Four” (2019).
‘Return Of The Infamous Four’ was mixed and mastered by Cederick Forsberg (Blazon Stone, Rocka Rollas) and features ten fast paced, no frills, highly singalong ass kicking tracks. The album was released and distributed by over 20 recordlabels worldwide and got voted the second and fifth place at the top 100 of ‘best record of the year 2019 award’ at Melodic Punk Style and Skatepunkers, the two biggest polls in the skatepunk scene. Drunktank was awarded Punk/Hardcore band of the year 2019 and Punk full length album of the year 2019 at USA radio station Radio Roach.
Drunktank toured all across Europe, played festivals like Brakrock, Punkrock Holiday, Groezrock, Jera On Air, Manchester Punk Fest and Parkpop and opened for bands like Lagwagon, No Fun At All, Satanic Surfers, Strung Out, Voodoo Glow Skulls, A Wilhelm Scream and many others.
