Puna punkers launch tour tonight in Hilo
Beginning this week, Puna punkers Old Habits Die Hard will embark on their first ever Northwest U.S. tour in support of their new album, "Bloodshot Vision."
They will tour for over two weeks, playing shows with bigger name bands such as punk rock legends MDC.
Tonight they will kick off the tour with a CD release show and domestic harmony fundraiser at Shooters in Hilo.
The all-ages show starts at 6 p.m., and will feature other island talent including Twisted Tree, Pissfitt, False Crack and On Top. Admission is $5.
"We were looking for a good cause to play this event for," said Lundy Kramer, guitarist, vocalist and band manager. "It's a natural for us since our music is about people getting along and promoter Tiger Stanley of Total Deniability Productions is related to the organizer of the Domestic Harmony Awareness Initiative."
Old Habits Die Hard consists of Kramer, Adam Kramer on guitar, Harley Aragon on bass and Matthew Donnert on drums. Old Habits Die Hard has been playing, writing and recording their brand of Hawaiian punk rock -- described as semi-melodic hardcore punk -- for the last two years.
"Bloodshot Vision" is the band's second full-length effort following 2008's "Hit the Ground Running," both recorded at Bad Dog Productions in Hilo.
The bank recently started its own independent label, "Puna Punk Records," for the sole purpose of helping underground rock bands release decent quality albums while keeping the rights on their work.
