Warn The Duke
Sounds Like: The Replacements, Beach Slang, what bands like Chumped and Jeff Rosenstock are doing for Pop Punk/Emo right now, Warn the Duke is doing for that late 80s/90s alt/punk sound.
The 4-piece alt/punk band from Brooklyn, NY consists of former River City Rebels lead vocalist Dan McCool on vocals and guitar, and Derek Davis of Big D and The Kids Table/The Toasters on drums. Filling out the rhythm section is indie rock bassist Sara Press (Shorebirds) and George Miata on lead guitar. With comparisons to 80’s/90’s alt/punk sound of bands like The Replacements and Kid Dynamite, and also recent acts like Beach Slang.
Warn The Duke self released their debut LP "Ghost Be Gone" in October, which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater. Wiretap will be pressing the LP on 12" vinyl available in May 2016.
