We rarely make posts like this but Hong Kong is our home. We love this city with all our hearts and will continue to be the most important place for us to support, love, respect, and cherish. These past few days a whole bunch of awesome Hong Kong bands have released music and so we just wanted to collect them all here in one place for you to enjoy on this first day of the lunar new year. Not all of these are punk or hardcore related – but who gives a fuck? Good music is good music. Period.
Happy lunar new year all!
Stay safe and healthy this year!
The groove on this brand new track by jazzy/pop act ROOT is unbelievable. Fronted by one of our all-time favorite vocalists in Hong Kong, Jan Curious, he absolutely SLAYS it on this track taking the listener on a beautiful journey. Shit’s ill…
BAND: Rain In Time
This insane band JUST released a brand new album last month and are ALREADY following up that release with a new single! How hard does this band work!?!??! They’re so good that immediately we stop whatever we’re doing to check out whatever they’re out promoting…new song rules. The band continues their love for early 00’s emo bands like Taking Back Sunday, Paramore, etc and we love them for it. All them feels from that era are always so much fun to revisit over and over…
BAND: Maenad & The Ravers
Darkwave duo keep dropping gem after gem every few months and always do it with little to no fanfare. They just let the music do the talking…such an inspiring band that always creates the art they want to create.
We don’t know how many times we’ve repeated this track ever since it came across our socials last night…those fuzzed-out guitars that ground this track across the whole song totally has a solid grip on us, but then when those lyrics come in instantly recognizable capturing the essence of life in Hong Kong these past few years, makes the song even more touching. Great band…

The drummer of King Ly Chee, Kevin, is a huge youtube personality here in Hong Kong. He often even MC’s on a public TV station here called ViuTV which has been recently running his new show taking the audience through all 18 districts in Hong Kong. In the show his whole mission is to show a whole different side to these districts that people here may have never seen before. For this new show, he has just released this super pop-punk/Blink-182/MXPX inspired song!
