Honduras' new track "Ace" opens with some Johnny Thunders-style guitar before the band's vocalist Pat Philips takes over with a detached sounding vocal. But as the song progresses, it grows more frantic, with Philips eventually losing his cool, where he finally spits out "destroy!" during the bombastic midsection. This is punk in the classic sense – music from the balls, not the brain, that recalls the gleeful nihilism of the Dead Boys and Sex Pistols.

Rolling Stone Readers' Poll: The Best Punk Rock Bands of All Time

The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Missouri group have been blasting out DIY venues for nearly two years and on their upcoming second EP, Morality Cuts, the band explores both their primal and contemplative sides. "It was originally just an excuse to scream," Philips told Rolling Stone of "Ace." "However, the lyrics deal with the beauty and strangeness of two people focusing their attention on each other, and ignoring the rest of the world."

Morality Cuts arrives on February 25th via Black Bell Records and the band will play a local gig to support the release where there is sure to be plenty of screaming.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
