Stuck – “The Punisher”


Stuck, the Chicago post-punk group that rose out of the ashes of Yeesh and Clearance, are back with news of their sophomore album, Freak Frequency, the follow-up to 2021’s Content That Makes You Feel Good EP. Lead single “The Punisher” is everything you might expect from a band like this: nervy, tangled, squalling, and also very good. “They’ve got good news, it’s so sick living in a fanfic,” goes the hook. “They’ve got good news, there’s new life springing from a death cult.”

“It hits all the boxes of what this band can do: it’s goofy, but there’s a lot of intricate guitar interplay, and at the end, there’s a big payoff,” the band’s Greg Obis said. “It’s about fanatic QAnon and MAGA weirdos who think they are breaking a cycle that doesn’t really exist.”

Check out a video for the track directed by Zack Shorrosh below.
