I just took a listen to the split release from False Idle and A Common Goal that will release on Thumper Punk Records December 16th. I’ve gotta say, this is some extremely taste PUNK ROCK! The original songs (2 each) from both bands are absolutely fantastic and some of the best they’ve ever done as bands. This release finds A Common Goal exploring their more melodic, dare I say “poppy” side (for them at least) and…
This was posted over on my blog FreedomLikeaSong.com but I figured it deserves some coverage here as well for those that haven’t listened yet. I am proud to bring you an exclusive song stream from Boston punk rock band, A Common Goal.

We are in the final stretch for the Craig’s Brother Kickstarter campaign to fund their new Ep/7″ Vinyl called “The Story of How We All Die”. As of this posting, there are just 15 hours remaining in this campaign with $3369 pledged of the total $8525 (at present time). If you enjoy quality punk rock with catchy melodies and lyrics that’ll leave you singin’ for days, then definitely consider joining with fellow fans around the globe to make this dream a reality. I would very much like to see Ted Bond succeed with this project and I am sure many of you do as well. So check out some CB tunes below as well as the campaign link here. Thanks for your support thus far and the band thanks you as well – Brandon Jones.

Children 18:3 will release their new album “On the Run” through Tooth & Nail Records June 19th. [Bio] If there was ever a time for Children 18:3 to leap to the next level of notoriety, it’s with the release of On the Run, its third Tooth & Nail long player and hands down its most accomplished disc to date. Besides gleaning inspiration from literally running up and down the road the entire two years between albums, the trio comprised of David Laurence (vocals/guitar), Lee Marie (vocals/bass) and Seth Aaron (drums) has shaken up all aspects of its previous formula to embark upon an ambitious new chapter. From new management, to fresh photo and video shoots, to teaming with producer Travis Wyrick (P.O.D., Disciple, Pillar) for the first time, On the Run emotes an entirely innovative vibe on all ends of the artistic spectrum.

If you like solid punk rock with tons of melodies and sing-a-long lyrics, then Man Alive are for you. Give them a listen, you won’t be sorry you did.
I am at a complete loss of words for what this new Children 18:3 album means to me. I’ve always had high expectations for anything this band puts out because I have been pleasantly surprised with the past two releases. This new release is no exception, takes the perfection this band aims for and cranks it up to 100%. “On the Run” is a solid melodic punk release filled to the brim with sing a long melodies and strong…
