The Nudieland Shooting, Overcoming Addiction and New Album with Tane Graves of Tightwire

Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock podcast where I am going to be speaking with Tane Graves of the Minneapolis punk band Tightwire today. 

Tightwire released their second album called Head Full of Snakes in June of this year, and it is an absolute Ramones-core meets The Descendents banger with 12 songs coming in at 18 minutes. It’s short, but chock-full of every emotion balanced with catchy melodies and uptempo pop-punk..

The band has played and toured with some big name acts like Dillinger Four and Teenage Bottlerocket, had some lineup changes over the years as well as changing their name entirely upon being signed to Red Scare Industries.

If you like punk music, and you do NOT know of Tightwire, well, fuck me, you’re in luck, because today is your day.
