I am excited to reveal the track listing for the new Craig’s Brother ep “Devils In The Details” (to be released soon on Indie Vision Music). The ep which comes 15 years after their last ep “Epidemic” shows a band building on the strength of their previous material while embracing the future and offering some thought provoking punk rock. Pre-Orders for the CD will go live as soon as we get a release date locked in. Things take time and quality is the most important so let’s all sit patiently waiting for the punk rock kings to knock one out of the park.

Letter Kills just might be teasing a comeback. It’s a little soon to speculate what it could mean; a one-off reunion show? An new album? I recommend finding the band on their social networks like Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with whatever is going on, because there certainly appears to be activity of some kind going on.

So a few months back, a Christian deathcore/hardcore band from Matamoros, Mexico took the scene by storm with their message of faith, hope, and love that comes through Christ our Saviour. That band was My Place Was Taken. What seperated them from others doing the like is that their lyrics are all in Spanish. Continued →

The highly anticipated new album from well seasoned punk rock veteran, Ethan Luck, is out now. The album is jam packed with memorable choruses, bass heavy delivery, and a warm, inviting horn section that will keep you entertained for hours. This 10 track album was funded by fans through Kickstarter with a lot of us getting the vinyl version among other incentives. When I say “Buy it” I don’t mean that lightly. It is my full intention to persuade you, the reader, to drop what you’re doing and support true independent music by purchasing the album. SMLXLVinyl is stocking the album for those that missed out on the crowd funding campaign. More info can be found below. Just think of it this way, if you enjoyed the sounds of that 2004 OC Supertones album “Revenge of the OC Supertones” (that Ethan Luck helped write and played on) then you’re going to love this. Just take the more somber, introspective, and kick back songs of that record mixed together with some Interrupters, Rebelution, Hepcat, and The Dingees, to get an idea of the sounds found within. The production is top of the line and the musicians featured are definite pros (ex-members of OC Supertones, The Ws, and more). Ethan has been in so many bands in the past 22 years or so that it would be tough to document each involvement. Demon Hunter, Relient K, The Dingees, Value Pac, Project 86, OC Supertones, Pax, etc etc. Thank you Ethan for making the album you were always meant to create. Now all of you go give this as listen!

Detroit post-hardcore duo American Arson have returned from a brief hiatus with the explosive-yet-catchy single, “Rise”, which you should definitely check out below. “Rise” opens with the pair’s trademark grit, before seamlessly going into a sing-along bit. The track shimmers with some of the most melodic elements we’ve seen from American Arson to date – the chorus is catchy and there’s a shimmering, synth-like ambiance at play that gives it a fair share of pop sensibility.
