At number 13 in The Punk Site‘s countdown of our contributors favourite releases from 2021 is the Split EP from a duo of Dutch melodic punk bands, No Breakfast Goodbye and Ink Bomb, that was released back in June via Horn & Hoof Records in the UK, Dental Records in Canada and Concrete Head Entertainment in the US. The Split EP featured six brand new tracks, three from each band, that were written and recorded during lockdown.

“Melodic punk band Ink Bomb, who released debut album ‘Fiction’ in 2019, and relatively shiny Dutch mates No Breakfast Goodbye, for whom this is a first release, created this split EP as a flexible response to COVID 19. I think they created it because that’s what punk bands do. They drag each other up, they share each other’s space until established. The cover art here depicts the diver from No Breakfast Goodbye’s video for single ‘The Loser’s Club’ as well as the astronaut from Ink Bombs’ taster ‘Mutilation Boy’. It’s clever work. The two stare at each other as they float together in their own versions of the dark abyss. Connected despite the darkness.” (Horn & Hoof Records)
