Stream Drakulas Raw Wave

Drakulas are an Austin punk band featuring members of Riverboat Gamblers and Rise Against, and their debut album Raw Wave is exceedingly rad. These guys specialize in bitingly catchy blasts of nervous tension built to stoke the pleasure center of anyone who appreciates Marked Men, the Buzzcocks, or the late, great Jay Reatard. This is pulse-raising, fist-clenching punk rock that never skimps on melody — and with song titles including “Headphones-Slit Throats,” “Fistfight At Panchos,” and “Stepping On Glass,” you can be sure the lyrics are equally incendiary. Hear the whole adrenalized assortment below ahead of its release this Friday.

Raw Wave is out 11/18 on Dirtnap. Pre-order it here.
