The world is full of grit, seriousness, and dark themes within media. Whenever something “fun” comes around, it’s a nice change of pace. The Protest’s debut album on Rockfest records, Legacy, provides a Christ-centered, lighthearted yet heavy hitting album that’s perfect for some summertime head-banging. Continued →

With all these new reunions fresh in our minds and the rivers of nostalgia running deep, it was only time before the mighty Squad 5-0 came back and dropped a new album on us. According to the band’s official Instagram page (sorry I’m not aware of any Facebook pages that are current), they may be working on a new album and teased with like 1 second guitar clip. Whether or not this is true remains a mystery much like the band themselves. Let’s hope for one more rockin’ ruckus of a new album. The band last released “Late News Breaking” in 2004.

Blank Books a band that features world renown producer (and musician) Aaron Sprinkle and his legendary drumming/songwriter genius brother, Jesse Sprinkle, have announced their debut EP which is available digitally now and it is available on CD for pre-order right here. This is the band I told you about a few years ago and one i’ve eagerly been anticipating since Jesse shared a song stream with me quite a while ago. This band and its’ members have a quite a music pedigree so you can only expect the very best from these two. I can’t even begin to list off all the bands they’ve been in, a part of, and produced over the years. I am sure you can wiki it but I recall Poor Old Lu, Rose Blossom Punch, Solo work, Fair, Demon Hunter, Dead Poetic, Vekora, and so many more. In fact, if you have a list feel free to post it in the comments. [Thanks synnr sainte jebbeau for the news tip] Oh and listen below ;)

So excited to announce that the brand new Stavesacre full length “MCMXCV” is finally here. Take a listen to the songs on all digital networks including YouTube, below. If you don’t have this Stavesacre album yet and aren’t listening to it right now then I’ve lost all faith in humanity ;) Seriously though, drop what you are doing and give a listen to the new album from Stavesacre, their first new music since 2009. It’s more than nostalgia and longing for past glory, this is a step above all the other “rock” records of 2017. It’s a beautiful reminder of the powerful impact MUSIC can have on one’s soul. For me this band has always held a special significance for me in my walk and contemplation on life. Mark Salomon is one the finest rock n’ roll vocalists to grace our music scene in the past 20+ years as he has fronted this band (and before with The Crucified). I still have the fondest memories of seeing these guys live back in the day even when all the crowds around us seemed more concerned with punk and ska. These gentlemen always captivated the crowd and my heart. Thank you guys for making the best album of 2017 and revitalizing the rock scene. I hope even more people will discover the magic of this band.

I am very proud and humbled to present this brand new track titled “Accelerating Into Brake Lights” from the band Stavesacre off their brand new full length record “MCMXCV”. You can listen and stream the track below. Make sure to pre-order the new record here for all of you that couldn’t get in on the crowd funding campaign. I am totally floored with the new Stavesacre album. It’s everything I had hoped for when I first signed up to contribute to their campaign. There are so many rushed reunion campaigns these days and I’m glad the guys really took their time in perfecting their craft to put out their best material in a decade. It’s on par with some of my faves in their catalog like Speakeasy, How To Live With A Curse, Absolutes, Bull Takes Fighter, and even Friction. This band can easily kick the butts of any of the newer groups just setting up shop on warped tour. I really hope Stavesacre gets some long over due credit and respect with this new album because it is well deserved. This album is everything you’ve come to expect from this seasoned group of musicians and that is PURE PERFECTION! This album is like the perfect continuation of the sound from #HowToLiveWithACurse mixed in with sounds you would have found on #Speakeasy and #BullTakesFighterep I even hear the influential sounds of their first two records: #Absolutes and #Friction. Stavesacre has far outdone themselves with this incredible, awe inspiring set of songs. Flawless production, intelligent songwriting and that unmistakable voice. All you salivating fans that missed out on the first preorders will without a doubt LOVE this album once you get it.

Emery have had their fair share of problems recently with tour vehicles breaking down but the band keeps pressing on like the solid road warriors they are. The band bought a really old bus and are currently in the process of renovating it. As you can see from the LIVE video they filmed yesterday, they still have quite a ways to go (no AC, and in the heat of West Coast). So this is where we call come in. The band has launched a little campaign via their website here where you can get an exclusive 17 track LIVE album for $25. This bus looks totally DIY and Punk Rock! Consider helping them today and keep them on the road so they can continue blowing up speakers all over the U.S. and beyond with their explosive rock n’ roll.

The windy city during the mid 90s was a whirlwind of punk rock bands that came and went, but their reputations and influence still resonate to this day. There is one modern day street punk band that has emerged from the shadows and is currently tearing up the city of Chicago one mosh pit at a time. Continued →

TRAMPS the band featuring ex-members of The Wedding and The Overseer have released their debut ep. Filled to the brim with passionate, honest, and heart on the sleeve rock n’ roll. To put it lightly, I’m more than impressed with this debut and feel that it’s one of the strongest debut releases of 2016. There is just something that reeks of pure honesty when listening to these songs. Featuring a slight “punk rock” edge while staying true to straight up dyed in the wool rock n’ roll. Imagine the bands The Gaslight Anthem, Bruce Springsteen, (old)Against Me, Make Do and Mend, and The Menzingers all collaborated on a song and you’ll get a sense of the realism in these songs. You can listen to the songs below. Check out the song “Winds” featuring Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire).
