COUNTERPUNCH - HALO SLIPPING STRIKE TWELVE COUNTERPUNCH Chicago based punk rock band Counterpunch formed in 2004. The lineup currently consists of Eric Hausser, Jared Rohde, Jim Margle (We Are the Union) & Brian Phee (Break the Silence). Their self-titled debut album was released in 2007 both on their own imprint, Punch It Records, along with Radtone Records in Japan. The next few years were spent performing with regional, national, and international acts in support of the release. Their second full-length record brought them to new heights, expanding their fan-base both domestically and abroad. It was released internationally in late 2010 titled "Heroes & Ghosts" on Radtone Records (Japan), Disconnect Disconnect Records(UK), Funtime Records (Belgium), No Reason Records (Italy), and Fond of Life Records (Germany). It would later be released by Go Kart Records domestically in the spring of 2011 with alternate artwork by Derek Deal under the title "Dying to Exonerate the World". Following their first European tour in 2011, Counterpunch would return in the spring of 2012 with spots on both the Groezrock and Jera-On-Air festivals. The band supported a variety of bands throughout the tour, including Nothington, Belvedere, Mute, The Copyrights, Authority Zero and Versus the World. Since their formation, they have also had the pleasure of sharing the stage both locally & internationally with The Vandals, Strung Out, Death by Stereo, We Are the Union, This Is a, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, A Wilhelm Scream, The Swellers, Much the Same, Only Crime & many more building a worldwide following along the way. In the summer of 2012, the band began writing & recording their long awaited follow-up LP, "Bruises," which will be released on CD / Vinyl / Digital from Cyber Tracks (Jen & El Hefe [NOFX]) on August 5th, 2014. Produced, mixed & engineered by Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Menzingers, Less Than Jake) at Atlas Studios in Chicago and mastered by Chris Fogal (Implants) at Black In Bluhm Studios in Denver, CO. "Bruises" features fast paced, fist pumping tracks that combine quintessential elements of the 90's So Cal melodic punk scene with modern day melodic alternative/punk rock. In November of 2012, Counterpunch made their way down to Costa Rica for both an intimate headlining show & a sold out 2,000+ capacity venue as direct support for Chicago punk stalwarts Rise Against (Geffen Records). Look for the band to be performing both local and international shows in support their upcoming LP.
