Finnish melodic punks Custody have announced a European tour, their first with new drummer Antti Pekkanen who joined in the Summer of 2021. Also joining are their buds in Distants, who hail from the Midwest. The tour was originally planned for 2020 in support of their latest full-length, but… you know, Covid. Never ones to give up, they endured two more harsh Finnish winters and are now gearing up for their first proper tour in 4 years.

About Distants (US):

“It’s like camo-shorts-hardcore but for your dad.”

Since 2016, Distants have been trying their hand at the emotive punk sound that defines Midwest DIY. They aren't trying to reinvent the wheel but with dueling shredding guitars - courtesy of Alex Angus and Mynor Gonzalez - they offer a fresh take on a familiar style of basement dwelling punk-rock. Drummer Steve Brewer keeps time behind Zach Leipham’s massive bass tone. All of that along with a signature gruff vocal style combines as a backdrop for deeply heartfelt lyrics that were made for arm-in-arm, beer-soaked singalongs among buds.

The band has and continues to tour on their 2017 demo and two self-titled EPs released in 2018 and 2019 on vinyl via Salinas Records. (Tyler Dykema)



About Custody (FIN):

We sound like Sergie Loobkoff having a knife fight with Matt Pryor and Mike Carter in the 90's!

Melodic punk band from Finland including members of NHL 95, Cigarette Crossfire, Cause A Riot, Life Giving Waters, Bazed & Buried At Last. "The air was still and days quiet in the Spring 2015. Out of mutual need of outing some tunes and vocal chords, we began laying down what eventually became a band with songs. We are a band. We make music that makes us happy.
