Charleston, South Carolina’s riff-worshipping punks, Drunk Couples, have teamed with PureVolume to stream their ferocious debut LP, Blasted!, in full.
Due out June 17th via Bob Records, Blasted! is an intoxicating blend of punk, hardcore, and rock & roll that never lets up over it’s concise 30 minutes. Drunk Couples harness the ferocity of punk and hardcore while adding a much needed dose of fun. PureVolume called Blasted! “as intense as a bulldozer smashing into a building, with guitars and pulverizing drums doing the dirty work.”
Blasted! is available for preorder now. Drunk Couples will be on tour this summer, taking their raucous live show on the road. See dates below.

For some punk bands, rock & roll is the enemy; it represents the old guard with little to offer. Charleston, South Carolina’s Drunk Couples are not one of those bands. On their debut full length, Blasted!, Drunk Couples fully embrace the swagger of rock & roll without losing a drop of the urgency that makes punk so vital. It’s a delicate balance, but Drunk Couples are anything but a delicate band.
Formed in 2014 after it’s members’ previous band, the post-rock leaning Gifts From Enola, came to an end, Drunk Couples sounds like a direct reaction to that previous project. Stripped down and straight ahead, the band’s music is a pummeling mix of punk, hardcore, and of course, rock & roll that never meanders or over stays it’s welcome. The appropriately titled Blasted! is a non-stop explosion of massive riffs and catchy hooks, a refreshingly gimmick free album that doesn’t let up once over the course of it’s tight 30 minutes.
Drunk Couples don’t care if you think they’re punk, rock & roll, or anything in between, they just want you to turn it up.
