The Goonz are a four piece punk/hardcore band from Cleveland, Ohio. They have been featured in AP Magazine, Punktastic, Absolute and several other publications. They have shared the stage with Helmet, The Bled, Gallows, Narrows, Code Orange Kids, Worn Out Tigers, and many more. They have released their debut album "Death is Purpose" in August of 2012 and are set to release their follow up "Blood City" in January of 2014. The follow up album is said to be "more punk, a lot more dare we say...catchier? and of a much wider range than the last album"

"Death is Purpose...12 tracks of no-nonsense rip-roaring, adrenaline rush-inducing punk rock muscle."

This band came together for no other reason than a couple of friends drinking beers and acquiring noise violations

In-your-face rock. If you’re pissed about something, put on The Goonz. I promise it will help. Plus, they boast my favorite Cleveland drummer, Mr. Kris Monroe.

They hold nothing back when it comes to telling you how they really feel about anything and everything through their lyrics.

Unlike far too many "punk" bands that are playing around town in little girl jeans with highlighted hair kept purposely too long on one side, they seem to be more about the music than anything.
