So you may not know this but Smartpunk is back and they are putting out punk rock records. Today we have a premiere from one of the newest signees, Boca Raton, Florida's Protagonist. The band's new EP is titled Jean Jackets in June (available October 23rd) and the song is titled "Let's Get It." It'll bring back warm memories of early Rufio and Saves The Day. Check out the tune in the replies and then pre-order these jams via Smartpunk.

Today we are bringing you an exclusive stream of "Tunbridge," the second track off Protagonist's upcoming May 17 EP, States. Head to their AP.net Profile to stream the track, and hit the replies to check out album art and tour dates. Worthy of note: this is the EP that was recorded last year, when the band's gear was stolen on tour the day before recording started. They recorded the EP using Stephen Egerton's gear.

Head to the replies to see Protagonist's new studio video where they also discuss about their equipment being stolen earlier in the week.

Yesterday morning, Protagonist's equipment was stolen while their van was parked in a Denny's parking lot. The estimated total stolen comes out around $22,700. If you have any spare cash the band would greatly appreciate it. Here is a direct link to their paypal. If you want to see the whole message from the band and the list of gear go here.
