SPB exclusive: Listen to the debut full-length from Color TV

Color TV - Color TV

Scene Point Blank is proud to debut the first full-length from Color TV, out next month on Deranged Records. The 10-song self-titled album follows several 7” singles.

On their debut, the Twin Cities-based band brings speedy punk defined by short bursts of melody and weary musings about the state of the world. The band shows an affinity for early UK punk, with carefully merged influence from US hardcore and more. Or, as Deranged puts it, “This is punk music clearly made by lifers obsessed with the underground counter-culture. Come, children, time to gather around and drink the electric Kool-Aid of C-TV!”

The band will be on tour this month, kicking things off in Minneapolis on Oct. 9 in Minneapolis.

Order Color TV now from Deranged Records and catch them on tour.
