Pkew Pkew Pkew


Canadian punk band Pkew Pkew Pkew brings attitude to their high energy bar chord rock in a unique anti-anthemic, all hook style. Pkew(x3)’s sound is a fist-pumping, loud riot with all of the comical, sassy, lyrical charm that any cynic or satire punk would love. From making fun of everyday life, skate culture, slamming beers, ordering pizza, and procrastinating in life, their songs will definitely make you smile and want to crowd surf at the same time. Check out their video for “65 Nickels” above off their album + One.

Somewhere between Americana and emotional colored indie-rock lives New Jersey band, Pinegrove. Led by singer/songwriter Evans Stephen Hall, and backed by core members and brothers Nick and Zack Levine, the shimmers of jangling guitar leads and meandering slides balance the portrait of Evans’ straight-ahead, self-realized lyrics. After a couple of EP’s released as an anthology and a full album title Cardinal on Boston based label Run For Cover, Pinegrove has most recently released their newest record in late 2018 titled Skylight. Check out a live performance Evans did for NME magazine’s basement sessions above and catch a show near you.

“For my playing, I need heaviness and a full tone for higher frequencies. Due to the strong magnetism, the output of Ernie Ball Cobalt strings is magnificent. Their sound and quality fit my needs perfectly.” Bassist Linus Klausenitzer

Linus rips the bass with Ernie Ball Cobalt Hybrid Bass Strings and Power Slinky 5 Bass.
