The Bruise Cruise is an annual event for punk rock and hardcore fans to board a cruise ship, drink like fishes, and enjoy the sounds of their favorite acts for a few days of seafaring anarchy. In addition to memories and possibly some scrapes and bruises, attendees will leave with a limited-edition 7″ featuring artists from the 2012 lineup. King Khan and the Shrines‘ previously unreleased Bite My Tongue is among the tracks up for grabs, packaged as part of a split 7 with Mikal Cronin. With jangly guitars and an overpowering chorus, the track is in line with the bright, sunny numbers of decidedly more poppy ’60s garage acts and is the perfect soundtrack to a game of shuffleboard on the poop deck. Check it out below.
Brusie Cruise 2012 goes down February 10th-13th, and will include performances from Fucked Up, The Soft Pack, The Dirtbombs, Thee Oh Sees, King Khan and the Shrines, and many more. Grab your tickets here if you haven’t already.
