NJ’s Public Serpents will release their SBÄM Records debut album, The Bully Puppet, on March 24th. The six-piece ska-core band, who are fronted by Choking Victim drummer Skwert, have now released the album’s first single, Not Forever. Since Public Serpents first entered the scene in 2008 with their debut album, The Feeding Of The Fortune 5000, they’ve also appeared on splits with bands UpperDowner and recent Fat Wreck Chords signee Escape From The Zoo, receiving critical acclaim in the worldwide crack-rock-steady scene.

After dealing with a succession of professional and personal setbacks over the last decade, including incarceration, homelessness and the end of his marriage, Skwert says of the 13 tracks that make up the new album: “My whole life is invested in this. Artistically, physically and mentally, I’d probably die without it… there literally would be no point in living at this point.”

Public Serpents are heading on tour in the lead-up to the album’s release, including a pair of NJ & NYC record release shows in April. The band will also be appearing at Blackpool, UK’s Rebellion Festival this Summer,
