Listen to Carbon Copy

Lawrence, Kansas duo Arc Flash are set to release Carbon Copy, their explosive full length debut on March 31st via High Dive Records (The Conquerors, Rooftop Vigilantes, Psychic Heat) but the band are streaming the record in full today with Uproxx. The duo of Mark Rockwell (drums) and James Thomblison (guitar/vocals) spoke with the site about the record, shifting from a trio to a duo, recording live, and much more.

Arc Flash been generating a buzz throughout the scene thanks to endlessly energetic shows and their own unique brand of “space punk” and “mutant pop” intensity. Built on blistering punk energy, infectious hooks, and raw fuzz riffs, the band’s sound is as sonically pleasing as it is aggressively catchy.

Uproxx said, “Carbon Copy is the perfect sonic embodiment of the term the band from which the band takes its name, which was used during Thomblison’s first day at tech school for electrical construction to describe “the electrical phenomenon when electricity jumps through air.” The energy is palpable on every track”
Arc Flash are hitting the road this month and next together with Howardian, Dressy Bessy, and Condor & Jaybird. Complete dates can be found below.

Arc Flash mixes the abrasive with the undeniably catchy to create music that can transfix even the shortest of attention spans. Blistering without repelling, the duo mixes punk, noise, surf, and pop into music that is both fun and visceral. The sound is taut without losing its carefree feel. Equally comfortable in a moldy basement as an elegant hall, Arc Flash makes any environment their own (keep an eye out for roving gangs of masked sci-fi hooligans). Like the electrical phenomena for which it is named, Arc Flash is unpredictable and bombastic.


“two Kansas cosmonauts who, as the band’s name suggests, sling incendiary, freewheeling fuzz-punk … Beware of high voltage, heavy riffs and catchy hooks — just don’t say I didn’t warn you.” – Clrvynt
