Coming good on their promise for an altogether darker, heavier and more bruising affair on their upcoming album, the band teased the release of ‘Alamort’ with three gloriously adrenaline-laced tracks’: Sobriety”, ’’Smoking Spot”, and most recently “Distant Shadows” (as heard on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show).

Each tracked and mixed at Crooked Rain Studio in Leeds by Bob Cooper (Nai Harvest / Citizen / The Orielles) and further mastered at Sonic Iguana Studio by punk-rock guru Mass Giorgini (Anti-Flag / Rise Against), this hat-trick of singles are all tell-tale signs of a band reborn and with an unquenchable lust to dabble in rock’s darker delights.

With its title taken from an old archaic term meaning to be ‘half dead from exhaustion’, ‘Alamort’, the tense and exhilarating new album from Ducking Punches will be released on 16th of February 2018 through the Xtra Mile Recordings label.
