Pittsburgh punk-rock group August Ruins is hosting an album release party Sat., Oct. 18, at The Smiling Moose. Since forming in 2009, the band has gone through a number of lineup and name changes before releasing two independent EPs. Its debut album, Momentary Victory, released September 2014, was produced and recorded in Cleveland in only 10 days. The group produces California pop-punk mixed with metal and hard rock that the Pittsburgh scene classifies as “punkcore.” August Ruins is excited to present fans with a polished full-length to add to their collection. You can see them perform live with special guests Operation Shutdown and Alter The Design.
