Seminal Punk act Bayside has unveiled new single, Strangest Faceswith an accompanying video. Bayside will also be on tour starting next month with Thrice. The band continue “focusing on creating songs that are relevant to people who want substance, rather than being relegated to one genre”.

Front man Anthony Raneri talks about venturing into heavier riffs for this song:

Writing riffs and making heavy music is fun.We’ve always had that kind of influence and we leaned into it a lot more with Interrobang‽. We wanted to see how far we could take injecting heaviness and riffs into melodic punk music.

“Strangest Faces” marks the band’s first new music since 2019’s Interrobang‽ Last year Bayside celebrated more than two decades with the 21 Years of Really Bad Luck anniversary tour. For the past 21 years, Queens-based band Bayside has represented “a lifestyle, a counterculture, and a deeply held conviction, diverse in thought and background but united by a shared desire for authentic expression” for their fans.
