Formed in 2004 and featuring members of We Are the Union (Paper + Plastick Records) & Break the Silence (Hopeless Records), Counterpunch has played shows with Rise Against, Strung Out, Pennywise, NOFX, A Wilhelm Scream, The Swellers and many others.

Armed with a sound shaped by the mid-90's Epitaph/Fat glory days of skate punk, Counterpunch continue to carry the torch with a spin all their own.

Counterpunch will support Strung Out at their "Exile In Oblivion" 10 Year Anniversary show in San Diego, CA on December 19.

What others have said about Counterpunch's "Dying To Exonerate The World":

"One lone guitar chord. Resonating for about 3 seconds. That’s all the time you’ll have to take a deep breath before the plunge into this spectacular roller coaster constructed by Chicago, Illinois’ punk rock group Counterpunch"- Dying Scene

"These 13 songs embody all that is good in the skatepunk/melodic hardcore/pop punk/whatever genre: stunning vocal interplay delivering the powerful lyrics; intricate guitar work backed up by a talented rhythm section, and hey, the cover art’s pretty nice too."- Absolutepunk
