Altar Boys Release New Album "No Substitute"

Altar Boys have officially dropped their first new album in 25 years titled “No Substitute”. This new album is actually a collection of songs written after “Forever Mercy” and before they went on hiatus. The bare bones tracks have been re-recorded and freshened up for the world to hear. The songs run the style divide between their hit albums “Gut Level Music”, “Against The Grain”, and “Forever Mercy” while mixing in modern elements and a much fuller sound. It’s everything you’ve come to love about these legendary song makers and your expectations will be blown away. As much as I love those classic songs from the 80’s, there is just something special about the raw passion of a group of gentlemen coming to grips with their Faith, Hope, and age. This is truly timeless music and it doesn’t matter who you are or from what generation because these songs come from the heart. This album can’t be categorized or labeled as this or that, “No Substitute” is simply GOOD MUSIC. It’s rare for a band to maintain their legendary status for over 30 years and still come out swinging with the best of them. I can think of a handful of artists with or without the faith connection and to be honest some should have hung it up years ago. This isn’t the case with Altar Boys and as long as Mike and the boys still have a voice to share, nothing should stop them. Go check out “No Substitute” now on all digital networks. You can listen to the song “1000 Miles” below and I’ve posted the Spotify embed as well. Enjoy.

MxPx - Let's Ride (Official Music Video)

MxPx have finally unveiled the first new song from their upcoming new 10th studio album, “MxPx”. This beautifully filmed music video and extremely catchy new song can be heard below. Mid-Life punk rock takes on new meaning and brings to the forefront all those fresh memories from years ago that were bubbling just beneath the surface. The nostalgia runs deep in this song and video and I think us as fans couldn’t have asked for a better first single. “Let’s Ride” is not only the perfect introduction to a band who have had so many trials during their run but also a reintroduction to a band you might have gave up on after their first decade. Seriously, check this out and run through the past with your arms wide open. Let’s ride.
