Amongst the impressive list of talent hitting the stage is the legendary COCK SPARRER, visiting San Francisco for their 4th time. Following up two *SOLD-OUT* co-headlining gigs with Rancid at The Warfield (2013), and three *SOLD-OUT* gigs at Great American Music Hall (2001 & 2009), the band is proud and excited for the opportunity to headline as Pirates Press Records' flagship band.

 




 BOUNCING SOULS

One of the first artists to the Pirates family, NJ's Bouncing Souls have been a mainstay in the punk realm for 25 years. As one of the torch bearers of east coast punk, many younger bands will ultimately derive some of its roots to the Souls. Classic albums like "The Good, The Bad, & The Argyle," "Maniacal Laughter," "Hopeless Romantic," and more have defined the band's legacy from its humble beginnings. With countless releases to the band's catalog, who knows what they'll do for our 10 Year Anniversary Party!

 




 STREET DOGS

2013 was big year for Street Dogs, who released two critically acclaimed EPs, "Crooked Drunken Sons" and "Rustbelt Nation," respectively. What followed in 2014 was some of the band's best material to date: a split with the up and coming Washington-based act NOi!SE. Intended to be a teaser to hold fans over until a new full-length is recorded, Street Dogs faithful have set the bar even higher for the band for their next release. While the fury and passion and sheer musical brilliance of the records speak for themselves, the live show is what keeps the band in a class of its own.

This is a band we have had the pleasure of seeing mature over the years in front of our eyes. From "Sail The Seas Dry" to the band's most recent release in "Victory," the Chicago natives have been a mainstay with the Pirate faithful. The Struts are currently recording some new songs for an upcoming EP. Maybe they'll play some new cuts for us?

It's been over 15 years since The Workin' Stiffs released anything new, but longtime fans would be so excited to hear something new! The legendary Bay Area Oi! band wouldn't be reuniting to play a show without something new to show for it, right?

 




 CUSTOM FIT

In a completely unique way, CUSTOM FIT's sound honors bands like Stiff Little Fingers, Cock Sparrer, The Templars, Buzzcocks, The Jam, Descendents and even a little bit of Devo - but avoids the mistake of sounding rehashed and repetative. This female fronted outfit puts on a live show that can only be topped by their amazing record!

 




 BUM CITY SAINTS

Bum City Saints is San Francisco punk. A three piece, fast paced, in-your-face, and on a mission to keep punk rock alive and well with a sound that holds on tight to its roots while adding flavors of the fog & fire from the city by the bay. Rising up from the ashes with heart & pride. This is for fans of breakneck west coast-style hardcore punk!

 




 SMALLTOWN

Over 12 ago, when Skippy got a demo from Kalle L., their first demo no less, all the way from Sweden, he had no idea that he'd get to put multiple releases by this amazing band. Just an intern for TKO Records at the time, the tracks and the band just stuck - and have stayed in constant rotation ever since. We welcome Smalltown back to San Francisco for their highly-anticipated return!
