2011 was a banner year for Punchline, but 2012 is already off to a great start for the Pennsylvania pop punk underdogs. They will release a new EP, So Nice To Meet You, tomorrow via their own Modern Short Stories. Founding member Chris Fafalios made the courageous ultimatum that he would put down his bass for good if the EP did not make it to #1 on iTunes. We don't want to see that happen, so we have the first song, "Universe," streaming on the band's AP.net profile to give you a taste of how good it is. Be sure to support them by picking up a copy tomorrow, and then tune into Mobbed on Fox this Wednesday to see frontman Steve Soboslai talk about his feelings on national TV.
Alex DiVincenzo on 01/02/12 - 09:15 AM
The high resolution artwork for Punchline's So Nice To Meet You has been added to the AP.net gallery. The EP hits iTunes tomorrow, but we'll be streaming a track for you later today.

Punchline did something a bit unorthodox for their backstage sessions: after their set, they sat on the stage and played a couple of acoustic tunes for the remaining audience. In addition to performing their song "Whatever I Want, Whenever I Want," the band's punk alter-egos, The Vipers, took over to play "PMFA." Head to the replies for the videos.

Michael Shea also known as "MIKL" of BrokeNCYDE has responded in an interview about the fight against Corey Muro (Punchline) that occurred a few nights ago. I hope everyone enjoys the irony.
From The InterviewMuro stood there and said, “I've been playing music way longer than any of you!”, “You're not real musician!” and “Quit music. Remember Punchline!” He just kept yelling. We've dealt with this since we've started, so we're used to it. But when they started to disrespect a girl and us as people, it changed everything.
