We don't get to dust off the term skacore very often, but we get to with the latest from Public Serpents. The New Jersey band have released "Not Forever," which recalls the glory days of the genre. Led by frontman Skwert (who was the drummer for Choking Victim), Public Serpents are decidedly ska, but ska isn't normally this abrasive. A horn section tends to turn anything into a party, and "Not Forever" is definitely party friendly. But there is also tons of the more discordant side of punk in this song, in the best possible way. This song is a lot of fun, and is going to appeal to ska heads and people who hate the genre equally.
You can watch the video for "Not Forever" below. The Bully Puppet is due out March 24 on SBAM Records. For more on Public Serpents, check out the band's website.
