UltraBomb, the eagerly anticipated international supergroup, have now arrived bringing together three iconic musicians from the cream of punk rock. On bass is the legend that is Greg Norton, once the driving force behind one of the most influential bands to emerge from the American punk scene, Hüsker Dü. Next up is the indefatigable singer-guitarist Finny McConnell, a name you’ll recognise from thirty years as the frontman of the Canadian Irish folk-punk sensation The Mahones. Completing the trio is the drumming powerhouse Jamie Oliver, having served well over fifteen years in the seminal British punk band UK Subs, as well as shorter stints with the likes of SNFU among others. 

UltraBomb formed in July 2021, and just two months later they travelled from their respective homes in the US, Canada and the UK to record their killer debut album, Time To Burn, in Berlin, Germany. With a DIY ethic and a love of classic punk, the band wrote and recorded the ten track album in just four days. UltraBomb‘s debut single, Stickman Vs. Hangman, dropped in February 2022 to a crescendo of critical acclaim, and the band followed it up with their second single Star, a month later.

Alongside their upcoming album, Time To Burn, Ultrabomb are ready to get on the road again with shows and festivals across Europe in July and North America in the Fall. With plenty more in the pipeline for 2022 and beyond, keep tabs on their website and get ready for some incendiary live shows. Make no mistake, this band has a pure punk pedigree.

Time To Burn will be released on May 27th and can be pre-ordered via UltraBomb Records.
