Punk band Thrash Armstrong’s ‘Glass Knuckles’ tackles toxic masculinity in summer head banger

A socially conscious punk band from Seattle has a message about toxic masculinity!

The 3 piece pop punk band, Thrash Armstrong, has just dropped the first single “Glass Knuckles” from their latest album Guns, Germs, Steal and Love. The band, which consists of two straight allies and one Bear (Anthony Marcacci, aka “Tony”, the band’s bassist), is known for tackling socio political issues in their music, including trans rights, women’s rights and the like. “Glass Knuckles” is no exception. 

Tackling the subject of toxic masculinity in the punk scene, “Glass Knuckles” manages to be both fun and danceable, while also socially aware. The song starts off full energy, with a catchy punk instrumental and a strong vocal delivery. The lyrics in the song are creative, fun, and introspective, making this an easy summer jam to head bang to! 

The bridge was one of my favorite parts, with a strong build back into the chorus. The music video for the song matches the vibe perfectly. Colorful, quirky, and lively, with a touch of comedy makes this music video a must watch!

Oh, and if you didn’t know, you can also catch the beary talented Tony as a Woodsman in Season 3 of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks

Guns, Germs, Steal and Love is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and other music platforms.
