Chicago’s melodic punk rock darlings Counterpunch return with a new single. Delivering a patented blend of potent harmonies, the first single ‘Waiting in the Wings’ showcases exactly what they do best, ushering in a new era for the punk rock stalwarts. "Waiting in the Wings" is a political statement to the people in the US. "The song at its core is about speaking truth to power and having strength in numbers with your fellow man, not backing down when a moreal compass is not headed in the right direction", states Counterpunch's singer Eric Hausser.
In 2019, the band stepped into Black in Bluhm studios in Denver to record their 4th LP just before COVID shut down the world. In light of facing a new normal the band hit the pause button on releasing their latest full length effort, deciding instead to put out a 7" record with a few of the B Side tracks from the Black in Bluhm sessions titled "Handbook for the Recently Debriefed". Teaming up with Thousand Island Records and SBAM Records to bring the world a snapshot of the new era of Counterpunch.
Their newest LP will be released later in 2022 both from Thousand Islands Records and SBAM once again. The album was produced by Chris Fogal and the band itself.
