To date, Counterpunch has released two full-lengths, their S/T album and Dying To Exonerate The World.  They are currently gearing up to release their third full-length “Bruises”, which will be out on August 5th, 2014 via Cyber Tracks (El Hefe from NOFX).  Bruises was recorded at Chicago’s Atlas Studios with producer Matt Allison, who has also worked with punk-scene veterans Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, The Menzingers, Masked Intruder, and The Lawrence Arms.
