Earlier today Austin-based punkeros Sober Daze released their new skate/music video for “Live To Shred.” The single is their first from their forthcoming 7” split with San Antonio’s Knockin’ Chucks, scheduled for an April release from the group’s own Dazed Records. The 7″ will be made available in both vinyl and digital download formats.

Sober Daze was formed in Puerto Rico in 2002 by friends Peter Figueroa, Alex “Korn” Rivera, and Chris “Fatty” Bourcy. Shortly after they moved to Austin in 2003, they became notorious for their punk rock house parties with half pipe skateboard ramps and a tree house bar in their back yard at one point. The group currently performs as a four piece thanks to their addition of guitarist Alex “Rager” Loughborough in 2013.

Those in Austin can see Sober Daze live at the Punk Vs. Rockabilly 5 showcase on Mar. 16 at Flamingo Cantina and at the Eastside Throwdown Day Party on Mar. 20 at The Sahara Lounge.
