The festivities of Five Iron Frenzy day (yesterday) has brought us news of the band’s now classic album “Upbeats and Beatdowns” getting the vinyl treatment. “Upbeats and Beatdowns” was this band’s eclectic debut record, released 20 years ago on 5 Minute Walk Records. This awesome vinyl pressing will be handled by SMLXL Vinyl and shipped out in March 2017. Pre-order now right here. I’m holding out hope for the rest of their discography on vinyl and can’t wait to own it all! This album will be mastered for vinyl. Continued →

The Blamed Get Active

The Blamed have begun writing their new EP. This will be the first official new release since 2002. The band has taken a turn back towards more old school punk/thrash sound as found on their early albums. It’s much welcomed in this scene of jaded cynicism and a certain sort of safe complacency.

Heart Like War - Bring it On

Los Angeles based pop-punk band Heart Like War released this fun little music video for their new song “Bring it On” a few months back and I wanted to spotlight it for those of you that didn’t know who these guys are. The band released their 2nd full length album titled “Fired Up” on Thumper Punk Records back in June of this year. Fans of Mxpx, Sum 41, Blink 182, and old Hawk Nelson will find something to appreciate in this new album.

Hangnail Return From Their Slumber With Hard Hitting "Live" Album

The punk rock band Hangnail have indeed returned with a vengeance and are set to make all of you long time fans and fence sitters, instant fans of the band again. How might they accomplish this goal? Well with just one spin of their “Live” album it becomes abundantly clear just how much raw talent and power these men wielded through their instruments. Hangnail weren’t just another pop-punk band meant to ride the coattails of Billie Joe and Green Day with faux English accents, spiky hair, and pretend attitudes. Hangnail were far from that whole scene and their talent can’t be over looked. If you haven’t given this new Live album a spin, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. These 18 songs (and 1 intro) are some of the most powerful, melodic, technical, and spiritual punk rock songs you’ll ever hear outside of a polished Hollywood studio with a giant budget. It’s amazing how crisp and clear these songs truly sound and the bite that this release holds. If anyone wanted the perfect introduction to Hangnail, this should always be it then go back with Transparent, Facing Changes, and Self Titled. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to “release” this fantastic live album and I am thrilled to be able to share it with all of you. We welcome back Hangnail with arms wide open and it is my hope the guys will consider sticking around a little bit longer. If you like what you hear, make sure to pick up a shirt or two in the merch store. Continued →

Campaign Alert: Altar Boys / Broken Reunion 2005 DVD Release

Mike Stand and Steve Pannier of Altar Boys did a little facebook talk that included question/answer time and some classic songs done acoustic.

MxPx - Doing Time

Today’s Video Flashback is of classic MxPx track “Doing Time” off the “Life In General” album (1996/Tooth & Nail Records). It’s amazing to think that Life in General just turned 20 last month. So crazy how fast time flies. Speaking of MxPx, they recently released a “Live” film from their Observatory shows in 2015 and the band has a rare single that was part of their campaign for the live film that you can hear below.
