PANZERBASTARD Ready the War Machine and Announce Minitour with KOMMANDANT

Lock up your doors and take cover: Boston’s PANZERBASTARD are coming to town…and they don’t play nice. Fresh off a triumphant UK/Irish tour with like-minded hellraisers and crust legends HELLBASTARD, band have just announced a string of upcoming gigs with Chicago's KOMMANDANT. They'll be razing the East Coast alongside the likes of Funebrarum, Ringworm, and Nails - check the dates below:

7/29 - Philadelphia, PA @ The M Room w/Deceverion, Pale Existence
7/30 - Secaucus, NJ @ The Blue Room Lounge w/Funebrarum, Death Sick
8/11 - Allston, MA @ Great Scott w/ Ringworm, Nails, Bitter End

In addition, PANZERBASTARD are now streaming a sneak preview track off their upcoming Gods, Thugs & Madmen EP (due out this September on PATAC Records) on their Bandcamp page. Listen here:


Breaking out of the Boston underground, the diehard, motley Panzerbastard crew first reared their ugly collective heads in 2006, coming together from a veritable laundry list of Beantown’s most notorious underground acts, not the least of which is Bastard bassist/vocalist Keith Panzer’s legendary Boston hardcore outfit, Wrecking Crew.

Since then, the band—rounded out by Andrew Bastard on guitar and vocals, Hollywood Bobby on guitar and Slarcus on drums—has wrecked necks, broken bones and desecrated souls all across the South Shore, earning their deserved reputation as one of the most annihilative live acts around; most definitely not for the faint of heart.

Indeed, the quartet’s music is a reckless amalgamation of punk fury and intense, high-octane metal mayhem. From D-beating crust filth to electric, almost NWOBHM arrangements, Panzerbastard are in it for the long haul, determined to expand and explore the true destructive potential of their sound.

We’ll let the music speak for itself, however: prepare to have your gut crunched by the merciless …just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

PANZERBASTARD are available NOW to speak with interested media parties. Please contact and forward all correspondence to Kim Kelly at Catharsis PR or Dan at Patac Records:
