Chicago punk band Knuckle Puck have signed with Rise Records and plan to release their debut album over the summer.
“Today is a very exciting day for us and is truly a milestone for Knuckle Puck. We are ecstatic to announce that we have signed with Rise Records, who will be releasing our debut full length coming out next summer. We all personally feel that Rise will be a bountiful new home for our band and will only continue to help us be the be band we want to be. Thank you everyone for your diligent support that has led us to this point”, says guitarist Kevin Maida.
Rise Records founder/president Craig Ericson says, “Super excited to have Knuckle Puck in the family. I’ve had the chance to hang out with them several times and the guys are straight up gentlemen. It’s such a bonus when the bands you sign are rad dudes and great musicians.”
