Boston hardcore (BHC) is a region commonly noted when reading or discussing hardcore, and with good reason. Important bands in the 80's like SSD, DYS, Slapshot, Jerry's Kids and more all made a huge impact on hardcore and the sound to come decades later. Pummel have this sound embedded in their DNA, and with the mix of the new wave of 00s BHC from bands like Mental, Stop and Think, etc. Pummel are currently carrying the torch for their hometown.
Their 2021 self-released EP, "Next In Line" began to show a glimpse of Pummel's next evolution as a band. While maintaining groove, Pummel began to sprinkle in metallic leads, tempo switches and more. A year later, the band is back with the single, "Headcase"—their first release on Sunday Drive Records. "Headcase" further pushes the sound from their last release, overall making this a menacing single. From little moments like the leads in the beginning to the hi-hat break in the middle, Pummel is at their best, creating something fun, new and interesting. Pummel is currently working on a new LP, planned to be out in 2023 on Sunday Drive Records.
