Fresno punks Trash N Privilege sign to Manic Kat Records, release new album

Fresno punk outfit Trash n’ Privilege have unveiled their blistering new album Commence With The Bum Out.

The band has also announced their signing to Manic Kat Records.

Speaking on the album as well as their new label home, Steve Shepard shares: “Making this record has been a real learning experience. The band tried a lot of new things (not every idea was a good one). From the writing process to recording and production, we wanted to make these 10 songs unique and yet still us. Trash n’ Privilege is excited to share our work and partner with Manic Kat Records. Everyone at the label has been great so far and we’re proud to be among their talented artists”

Born out of a shared frustration with the status quo, Trash n’ Privilege dazzle with their fast paced, melodically weighted punk rock. The Fresno outfit’s caffeine laced, high-octane energy is raw and unapologetic with a soundscape that nods to punk icons Ramones, Quicksand and Social Distortion.

The band’s new album Commence With The Bum Out is a sonic assault of blistering guitar riffs, thundering bass lines, and relentless drums, accompanied by lyrics that tackle themes of a 24-hour news cycle, big tech, and personal struggles.

Partnering with punk label Manic Kat Records for the new release, the California crew find a fitting partner to vent their rage-fuelled punk. The raucous record is relatable and unerringly accessible, a throwback to the formative iteration of a genre that champions expressions and passion.
