Punch Drunk Tagalongs roots are in Akron, but they recently moved north and found a home in Cleveland. Over the past year, the Punch Drunk Tagalongs have played 50 shows, started to tour regionally, and have been hard at work in the studio. Catch them at The Comet this Saturday!
The sound has evolved quite a bit since its humble acoustic beginnings and first few basement practices. What started off as a softer and more singer-song writer focused project now has a variety of quirky, heavy, and crunchy sounds to transition between from song to song. As the band evolved so did their pedal boards, which now act as a pallet of colorful tones they use to paint details into the corners of their music while simultaneously dipping their toes in shoe gaze elements.
Punch Drunk Tagalongs blend grunge, distortion, fuzzy riffs and psychedelic/experimental leanings with a melodic undertow that drives their affecting music. A Punch Drunk Tagalong show is a whirlwind of energy and emotions guided by a nostalgic trip through heart of 90's grunge and the riot grrrl movement.
