German Hardcore Punks Phantom Bay Release New Single ‘Collective Decline’

Melody, Mayhem, and Punk that's Making hardcore Waves!

Phantom Bay’semotive, melody-driven brand of hardcore punk is making waves. Formed in Bremen, Germany, in 2020, the band’s members are deeply rooted in the punk and hardcore scene, having cut their teeth in numerous earlier projects. Phantom Bay’s sound draws influence from the entire spectrum of punk music, with hints of 80s D.C. hardcore punk, 90s emo and 00s melodic hardcore, but never compromises on melodic quality.

The band says that the single ‘Collective Decline’ is about struggling with world events and the powerlessness that comes with it. “It’s a song that is about realising that we’re just a small cog in the wheel and no matter what you do, this world will go to hell.’

After releasing their debut self-titled album in 2022, Phantom Bay toured Europe with Los Angeles-based Militarie Gun and opened for hardcore heavyweights Turnstile and One Step Closer. Having made their UK festival debut at Manchester Punk Fest in Spring 2023, the band is set to perform at the legendary Fest in Gainesville this Fall.

“Underground” is set for release on September 8th 2023 through Krod Records and is available for pre-order here
