Are you hungry? Mint Records is dishing out our tastiest single since cub’s Hot Dog Day! In collaboration with notorious Vancouver comic artist Cole Pauls and Conundrum Press, we’ve got a 2 for 1 deal lined up that will make your mouth water! To celebrate Cole’s new comic collection, Pizza Punks, we’ve rounded up the savory sounds of two of Vancouver’s deluxe punk combos, Dumb and Tough Age!
Dumb serves up “Pizza Slice,” a piping hot pie of chopped chords drizzled with their secret sauce of jittery verse and tangy feedback that will melt your mozza and your face. Best served on a Saturday night with your best pals but also lifesaving the next morning when you wake up late and need something to get you moving!
Tough Age takes you out for a date night to a classy Italian place with checkered tablecloths and a candle stuck in an empty wine bottle. They serve up “Giuseppe Pizzeria” and it’s a refreshingly authentic taste of the band's time tested recipe of fresh jangle and creamy vocals, all served on a crisp and swaggering crust.
