Austin TX’s ragging hardcore collective BAND OF BASTARDS is back this week with another new song from their volatile debut album, DELETE. REPEAT., that’s out July 23rd from Redacted Records/SilverDoor Music. The slow-burning scorcher “Let Me Out” is a punk-n-roll anthem tinged with hardcore energy that’s made for the pit.
Commenting on “Let Me Out,” guitarist Andrew Leeper says:
“Let me out is about looking for a new path but constantly getting pulled back into the same claustrophobic roles put on us every day. It’s about looking for a way out. It’s also about twice the length of any other Band of Bastards song at an epic 3 minutes and 16 seconds hahaha.”

BAND OF BASTARDS is a hardcore punk band, by lifers for lifers. After decades in the Austin underground and a rap sheet of current and former bands a mile long (…And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Sparta, Markov, Black Books, We’ll Go Machete, Glass Shadows) these Austin music scene vets form a tight, locked-in wrecking crew.
Fast, loud and to the point, the 12 songs on DELETE. REPEAT. rip by in under 30 minutes. Recorded by Charles Godfrey of Scary American Recordings (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Swans, Black Angels, Cannibal Corpse) the record captures the raw intensity and immediacy of the BASTARDS slugging it out in a grimey, all-ages club.
With roots in early American hardcore, BAND OF BASTARDS manages to evolve that sound into something new. It’s chaotic, it’s relentless and it’s righteously pissed.
