Blowfuse, the punk powerhouse hailing from Barcelona, ignites a sonic revolution with their latest single “Move On,” a rallying cry for change and empowerment, setting the stage for their upcoming album ‘The 4th Wall.’

In the gritty underbelly of Barcelona's punk scene, a sonic storm is brewing, and its name is Blowfuse. The Catalan quartet, born in the cauldron of skatepark vibes and punk rock ethos, is set to unleash their rebellious manifesto with the release of their latest single, "Move On." A molotov cocktail of 80's and 90's punk influences, coupled with the raw energy of the skateboard lifestyle, Blowfuse emerges as a sonic juggernaut, blurring the lines between hardcore punk aggression and the infectious melodies of 90's punk rock.

"Move On," the initial single from their impending 4th studio album, 'The 4th Wall,' due to detonate on March 1st, 2024, is more than just a song; it's a call to arms, a rallying cry for change. In the words of frontman Oscar Puig, "Move On is a call to action and change. Its direct message conveys a sense of empowerment and the necessity of freeing oneself from the past to find a new direction in life." A sonic catharsis that jolts the listener out of complacency and into the tumultuous realm of self-discovery.

Blowfuse's sonic alchemy is a heady mix of classic rock riffs, hardcore punk ferocity, and 90's punk rock melodies. It's a sonic cocktail that leaves a lingering taste of rebellion and adrenaline. The band's evolution, marked by a name change from Godfarts to Blowfuse in 2013, mirrors their musical journey—a journey that began in 2008 when they first started tearing up stages in their native Barcelona.

Having shared stages with punk luminaries like Pennywise, 7 Seconds, Adolescents, and Face to Face, Blowfuse is no stranger to the mosh pit melee. Their 2013 album, "Into The Spiral," produced by Darian Rundall, known for his work with punk heavyweights like Pennywise and Suicidal Tendencies, solidified their status as a force to be reckoned with.

Blowfuse's odyssey through the punk rock landscape is a testament to their unwavering dedication. As they gear up for the release of 'The 4th Wall,' their passion for music burns brighter than ever. In the chaos of their youth, amidst the whirlwind of tours, collaborations, and peculiar music videos, Blowfuse stands tall, a beacon of punk resilience in the heart of Barcelona. So, as the first notes of "Move On" reverberate through the speakers, brace yourself for the sonic revolution that is Blowfuse. In their hands, punk rock is not just a genre; it's a way of life, a relentless pursuit of musical freedom, and a declaration to "Move On" from the chains that bind.
