The Skinny: Ready for release on October 4, 2014 via Infected Records, we’re hyper-as-shit to bring you an exclusive premiere of Jackie D’s brand new 10-song album, Symphonies From The City. Loaded with sleaze, punk and even a bit of hardcore, this is rough rock from Portugal that should be played loud, and will likely leave you sweaty.

Jackie D. was conceived as recently as 2013 by members of bands Grankapo, Custom Circus and Barafunda Total. As is evidenced on Symphonies From The City, the group offer a “crushing, cohesive and well-structured” sound that can be described as a “Southern-tinged punk/hardcore sound” that is reminiscent of popular acts such as The Bronx, Cancer Bats, and Every Time I Die.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
