Hunx & His Punx

Since releasing his project's debut album in 2011, Seth Bogart, affectionately known as Hunx from Hunx & His Punx, has relocated to Los Angeles, released his 2012 solo record Hairdresser Blues, and assembled a new cast of characters to make up the foundation of his band. With Shannon and the Clams front woman Shannon Shaw joining him at the helm, Hunx ventured out of pop territory and into the realm of punk rock for "Bad Skin," the first single off of the outfit's sophomore LP, Street Punk. With faster riffs, grittier vocals and no time for any spoken word interludes, the 90-second track echoes abrasive 1980s hardcore punk instead of the cheeky, 1960s girl group pop that colored the band's first offering.

Following the July 23rd release of Street Punk, via Hardly Art, Hunx & His Punks are scheduled to depart for a North American tour. Check the dates below to see if they're stopping in your city.
