Bullet Tooth is excited to announce the worldwide signing of KNOCKOUT KID from Chicago! Their unique brand of aggressive, metal-tinged pop punk has solidified them as a frontrunner of the scene, and they’ve spent the last two years touring the U.S. and Canada extensively in support of their self-released debut, “It Comes With the Job Description." Having been compared to Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember, and The Wonder Years, KNOCKOUT KID released their label debut 12 song album, “MANIC,” in-stores and digitally via Bullet Tooth on 2/26/16. The album also features guest vocals from Kid Liberty singer, and Bullet Tooth alumni, Trey Sexton, on the track “Jurassic Park After Dark," the first single off the record. "MANIC" LPs will be available with an unheard bonus track in two variations - blue splatter and gold - in early fall of 2016. The first music video from the album, "Empire Business," will be out in summer '16.
Speaking on the signing, the band said, “Joining the Bullet Tooth family is a dream come true for KNOCKOUT KID. Having grown up on bands from Josh and Bullet Tooth, it’s only right that they release our most ambitious album to date. The future has never been brighter.”
Since its release, "MANIC" has garnered critical acclaim. New Noise Magazine called it the "most important record of 2016" because of its forward-thinking lyrical content. Chicago's own Reckless Record's hails "MANIC" as a "songwriting masterpiece for instrumentation & lyricism." The record also earned the band a personal invitation to play Belgium's Groezrock Festival in April of 2016, one of Europe's top ten rock festivals. KNOCKOUT KID is touring full time to show the world "MANIC."

"Sometimes it’s the simple things that are the most satisfying. When life gets complicated you needthe uncomplicated enjoyment that comes from things like a good cup of coffee, a blockbuster movie, or maybe a massive pop punk hook that just can’t be denied. Ottawa, Canada’s We Were Sharks have you covered when it comes to the latter. We Were Sharks have been steadily picking up steam since 2010 with a series of releases and have now teamed with Panic State Records for their most accomplished work to date, Not A Chance. We Were Sharks immediately hit the listener with the tried and true combination of crunchy guitars and big vocal hooks, always finding just the right balance between energetic aggression and polished melodies. Not A Chance is full of pop songwriting executed with punk rock attitude and the result is an effortlessly infectious sound that many strive for but few achieve."
