Austin TX’s ragging hardcore collective BAND OF BASTARDS have unveiled another new track today from their volatile debut album, DELETE. REPEAT., that’s out July 23rd from Redacted Records/SilverDoor Music. The song, titled “Holy Roller,” exorcises the demons with a punk rock molotov cocktail of angst and fury, and is one of a string of ripping tracks released in the past few weeks; all streaming now at the links below.
Commenting on “Holy Roller,” guitarist Andrew Leeper says:
“Texas is home to some of the largest megachurches in the country. They also happen to be massive tax-exempt multimillion dollar corporations. This song is inspired by the way megachurches are open for business 24-7 but conveniently close their doors once a crisis arises.”

BAND OF BASTARDS is a hardcore punk band, by lifers for lifers. After decades in the Austin underground and a rap sheet of current and former bands a mile long (…And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Sparta, Markov, Black Books, We’ll Go Machete, Glass Shadows) these Austin music scene vets form a tight, locked-in wrecking crew.
Fast, loud and to the point, the 12 songs on DELETE. REPEAT. rip by in under 30 minutes. Recorded by Charles Godfrey of Scary American Recordings (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Swans, Black Angels, Cannibal Corpse) the record captures the raw intensity and immediacy of the BASTARDS slugging it out in a grimey, all-ages club.
With roots in early American hardcore, BAND OF BASTARDS manages to evolve that sound into something new. It’s chaotic, it’s relentless and it’s righteously pissed.
