Welcome Warn The Duke to the Wiretap Records Family - New 12" LP Coming Soon on 12" Vinyl Posted 17 Dec 2015
Excited to welcome Brooklyn, NY Punk/Alt band Warn The Duke to the Wiretap Records family. The band released their debut LP “Ghost Be Gone” in October, which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater. We’ll be pressing the LP on 12" vinyl with some help from our friends at Save Your Generation Records available to order in the Spring of 2016.
The 4-piece lineup 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. If you dig 80’s/90’s alt/punk sound of bands like The Replacements and Kid Dynamite, and also recent acts like Beach Slang, give them a listen. Give the band a Follow and stream/downalod the full album over at www.warntheduke.bandcamp.com
“There is a demand for bands like this. Ones that wear their hearts on their sleeves but not in a way that feels corny or pretentiously cool.” - Punknews
“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” - Gigawatts Magazine
“If you’re into 90s college rock infused punk, this is your new favorite band.” - For The Love of Punk
