SAVE FERRIS DEBUT VIDEO FOR “NEW SOUND”

February 6, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – Influential Orange County ska-punk band SAVE FERRIS will release their first record in 17 years, Checkered Past, on February 10th via WITHYN Records. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with PasteMagazine.comto premiere a new video for their hot new single “New Sound.” Fans can pre-order the new EP now at iTunes and Amazon.
Watch the video for “New Sound” now, exclusively at PasteMagazine.com:

Speaking with PasteMagazine.com, Save Ferris’ frontwoman Monique Powell says “Filming this video was so much fun because it was literally a house party with our friends. Directing the video was my dear friend Piper Ferguson. I have wanted to do a video with Piper for years but because Piper typically does such high budget productions, I was afraid she might say no. Fortunately this is a situation in which having good friends that are incredibly talented comes in handy. You can truly tell this was a passion project for her. Having Angelo Moore (Fishbone, Angelo Moore and the Brand New Step) there was a given, as we always have so much fun together. The only person missing was Nev, he flew in his parts from the UK.”
The music video for “New Sound” opens at a lame house party that suddenly becomes an epic throwdown with the assistance of Save Ferris. The video features a cameo by Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and a vocal/cameo by Neville Staple, former vocalist for the legendary 2 tone ska band The Specials.
The video comes just days before the release of Save Ferris long-awaited new EP, Checkered Past, and their headline North American tour, which kicks off Friday with support from Vista Kicks (West Coast dates) and Baby Baby (East Coast dates).

THE MENZINGERS’ AFTER THE PARTY OUT TODAY

PHILADELPHIA PUNK BAND SET FOR NATIONAL HEADLINE TOUR

Today marks the long-awaited release of After the Party, the new album from The Menzingers. The fifth full-length from the Philadelphia punk band, After the Party arrives as the follow-up to 2014’s widely acclaimed Rented World.

Stream After the Party at Spotify now:

Produced by Will Yip (Title Fight, Balance & Composure, Pianos Become the Teeth), After the Party is a raw yet introspective look at getting older but not quite growing up. Throughout the album, singer/guitarists Greg Barnett and Tom May, bassist Eric Keen, and drummer Joe Godino offset their nuanced songwriting with anthemic harmonies, furious power chords, and larger-than-life melodies.

After the Party is a “a force of freewheeling expression and determined resolution” that “showcases the band at their boldest and brightest yet,” according to The Line of Best Fit. The review also notes that the album “reflects on the world around us and becomes a spark of motivation for something new.”

After the Party features several critically lauded singles from The Menzingers, including “Lookers” (hailed by Noisey as a “classic and thoroughly catchy piece of Menzingian songwriting”), “Bad Catholics” (a track whose “penetrating lyrics [are] packed into a sly haymaker of a hook,” according to Stereogum), and “Thick as Thieves” (which “flirts with a touch of abstraction” and “recalls the power pop-rock of the early 1980s,” in the words of New York Times pop critic Jon Caramanica).

AFTER THE PARTY TRACKLIST:

1. Tellin’ Lies
2. Thick as Thieves
3. Lookers
4. Midwestern States
5. Charlie’s Army
6. House on Fire
7. Black Mass
8. Boy Blue
9. Bad Catholics
10. Your Wild Years
11. The Bars
12. After the Party
13. Livin’ Ain’t Easy

As previously announced, The Menzingers will soon tour in support of After the Party, with Jeff Rosenstock and Rozwell Kid opening up. The national tour kicks off February 26 in Pittsburgh and continues through April 1 in Boston.

In addition, The Menzingers will play an acoustic in-store at Wilkes Barre, PA’s Gallery of Sound tomorrow at 4 p.m.

Tickets for the tour are on sale now.

“Right when you get your footing, and you get a foothold, that’s when your life flips upside down. That’s the world we live in sometimes, where calm turns into chaos and we have to push forward to gain some clarity. These seven songs could be the soundtrack to that passing moment, from calm to chaos back to clarity. We continue to push forward as a band, and mix everything we learned along the way into these tracks. You learn from history or are doomed to repeat the mistakes is what someone said and that is a truth on everything we do in this world. Sound The Alarm has Roger Lima at the helm again as was Jason Livermore from Blasting Room mixing and this release feels like a good continuing arc from our last full length See The Light. We keep refining what the modern LTJ is.” – Vinnie Fiorello (drums)

The Hangmen release long-awaited new studio material in March

Punk-rockabilly trio The Hangmen release long-awaited new studio material in March on vinyl and download.

The cult UK-band’s long-travelled international collision course to oblivion landed them again within earshot of recording equipment in 2016 (and someone reckless enough to turn it on). This alignment borne the three-track EP, ‘Necronomicon’.

Summoning part of an ever-expanding original repertoire to shatter the occasion, the new release offers a glimpse into the current state of the rock & roll band’s dark and wild sound. It complimenting a discography of eight albums, a handful of other EPs and several compilation appearances over the past 25 years.

In homage to the movie ‘Evil Dead’, the title track ‘Necronomicon’ takes the horrorbilly-punk association a disturbed step or three further than most.

But the song and accompanying video offer more than just another horror movie-themed rock ‘n’ roll track, as the band deliver a frantic composition and twisted visuals that mirror the rollercoaster-ride-to-madness experience of the cult terrorfest that inspired them.

Available on limited edition 10″ vinyl as well as download, additional tracks ‘Collarbomb’ and ‘The Great Brain Robbery’ serve to assure that the band’s insanity prevails and still rocks in readiness for the next full length studio album, currently in progress.

The Hangmen are for the no-frills ‘Play Loud’ crowd, regulars on the international psychobilly scene and punk scenes, but set are apart by a knack for never repeating themselves (or anyone else) and a distinctive sound so raw that it attracts bacteria.

Play this and run…

Pre-order here: https://hangmen666.bandcamp.com/album/necronomicon-ep

The EP ‘Necronomicon’ is released on Moon Skull Records March 11 2017 on limited edition 10” vinyl (Cat.# HANG10) and digital download (Cat.# HANG10DL).

The limited edition 10″ vinyl version is available to pre-order now and comes with free instant gratification download of the title track, followed by free downloads of the remaining tracks on the release date.After pre-orders, the next available copies of the vinyl record will be on sale at Bedlam Breakout Psychobilly Festival in Northampton, England, when the band performs there on the Saturday night (March 11 2017) of the event.

The download-only version will be available from the usual major online outlets.

Less Thank Jake New Album on Feb 3rd

LESS THAN JAKE WILL RELEASE NEW EP, ‘SOUND THE ALARM,’ ON FEB 3RD;
PRE-ORDER THE RECORD AND STREAM THEIR NEW SONG, “THINGS CHANGE,” NOW!
January 4, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – Influential Gainesville punk band Less Than Jake has announced plans to release a new EP titled Sound The Alarm on February 3rd with their new label Pure Noise Records.
Fans can pre-order the record and stream a brand new song called “Things Change” now at http://smarturl.it/LTJ.
Speaking about the new song, lyricist and drummer Vinnie Fiorello says “the only thing constant is change” is one of the lines in the chorus of the song and such a massive truth to me. The sooner you could realize this, digest it, and embrace it the better off you’re going to be. Let it all move forward, at lightning speed. Everything and everyone changes, the world keeps on spinning like it or not.”
Less Than Jake’s new EP, Sound The Alarm, marks an exciting new chapter for the band as they celebrate 25 years together and a newly inked deal with Pure Noise Records. Featuring 7, ska infused punk songs that quickly remind listeners of the band’s incredible ability to craft memorable, hook-filled music.
“We started writing this set of songs, similar to our last record See The Light, sitting around a table in our warehouse with some acoustic guitars, lyrics scribbled on scraps of paper, and a constant barrage of ideas,” Fiorello explains. “Trying ideas as they would come out, sometimes chasing the idea, or getting connected or not connected to an idea right away. We had been writing and were planning on fleshing out the ideas while on Warped Tour.” 
Sound The Alarm was recorded and produced by Roger Lima and mixed at the famed punk recording studio, The Blasting Room, in Fort Collins, CO. The band wrapped the record following their run on last summer’s Vans Warped Tour.
After years of releasing records through various major and independent labels Less Than Jake has found a new home at the Southern California based Pure Noise Records.
“When I met Jake at the San Francisco stop of Warped Tour, we talked about working together,” Fiorello adds. “He is a longtime fan, knows the history and the arch of LTJ and that’s important to know where we have to go. It’s always great to have a mutual respect between band and label and that is exactly what we have between LTJ and Pure Noise.”
Fans can catch Less Than Jake live this winter on their co-headline U.S. tour with San Diego rock band Pepper, which starts in Dallas, TX on January 20th and wraps in St. Petersburg, FL on February 28th. Tickets are on sale now at http://www.lessthanjake.com/.

THE INTERRUPTERS TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘SAY IT OUT LOUD’ AVAILABLE JUNE 24 ON HELLCAT RECORDS

Los Angeles-based ska-punk band The Interrupters will release their sophomore album, Say It Out Loud, on June 24 via Hellcat Records. Say It Out Loud is undeniably fun and urgent in message. And backing their modernized 2-Tone-tinged, guitar-fueled, melody-heavy sound are lyrics that confront everything from social control and self-empowerment to domestic violence and the media circus surrounding the next presidential election.

True to The Interrupters’ unabandoned passion and personal-meets-political dynamic, the first song shared from the album is “By My Side,” a fist-pumping, tender tribute to outcast solidarity.

Listen to “By My Side” now:

Since the release of their 2014 self-titled debut, The Interrupters have split their time between touring with the likes of The English Beat and Bad Religion and cranking out new material that shows off their irrepressible sensibility. So when the time came to record their sophomore album Say It Out Loud, the four-piece hit the studio with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong and fired off 14 new songs that both capture their frenetic energy and reveal a whole new level of boldness in their songwriting.

Over the past couple years we got to know ourselves so much better as a band, and that gave us a lot of room to really grow on this album,” notes frontwoman Aimee Interrupter, whose bandmates include guitarist Kevin Bivona, bassist Justin Bivona, and drummer Jesse Bivona.

Produced by Armstrong and recorded partly at his studio (as well as at Travis Barker’s Opra Studios), Say It Out Loud are a batch of feel-good songs proving The Interrupters’ unstoppably upbeat spirit. The Interrupters have forged a formidable bond that deeply informs their music. “Loyalty, family, friendship, and unity—with upstrokes,” says Kevin. “That pretty much sums up The Interrupters and what we are all about.”

Pre-orders for Say It Out Loud are available at http://www.wearetheinterrupters.com/. The Interrupters will headline a SOLD OUT headline show at The Roxy in Hollywood, CA and are on the Vans Warped Tour all summer long, staring in Dallas, TX on June 24 through August 13 in Portland, Oregon.

Get Aggravated With The New Album From Surf Rock Masters The Coffin Daggers!

Coffin Daggers med res.jpg
For Immediate Release
 
Get Aggravated With The New Album From Surf Rock Masters The Coffin Daggers!
 
Los Angeles, CA – New York’s premiere instrumental surf punk band returns with a brand new album of insanely catchy grooves and hip-shaking rhythms that are sure to get the hep cats dancing in the aisles! Aggravatin’ Rhythms, The Daggers third full-length album since 2002, ain’t your daddy’s surf rock, though the group certainly bares the influence of seminal surf legends, Dick Dale and Link Wray. But The Coffin Daggers deliver a more modern, punk-inspired brand of surf heard best on tracks such as the rollicking “Instigator,” the spooky “Sinister Urge,” or the bluesy swagger of “Concussion.” All of those tracks and more can be heard on Aggravatin’ Rhythms, will be available on both CD and on groovy green vinyl starting February 12 courtesy of Cleopatra Records!
 
Founding member and lead guitarist for The Coffin Daggers Viktor Venom hails from the vaunted East Coast ‘80s punk scene as a founder of crust punk band Nausea as well as a previous turn as bass player for Reagan Youth. Venom is joined by keyboardist extraordinaire and rhythm guitarist Rob Morrison, bassist Peter Klarnet and drummer Pete Martinez. Together this quartet are simply one of the most unique groups around. Speaking about the new album, bassist Klarnet declares, “We decided to go all out with this LP, so we recorded it over 16 tracks on 2 inch tape at Metrosonic Studios in Brooklyn—resulting in a deep, lush sound. It’s certainly not the cheapest way to record these days, but we all firmly believe that if you’re going to record something for posterity, it might as well be the highest quality possible. The proof of course is in the final product which we believe is our finest effort to date.” Previous releases by the band have been praised by Guitar Player who observed that Venom “moves proceedings beyond mere era emulation by unleashing a rude and vicious riff that would have made Link Wray smile.” Meanwhile, the group’s live performances have floored both European and American audiences from start to finish, prompting Chart magazine to declare “no one comes close to The Coffin Daggers when it comes to all-out intensity…they will stomp a mudhole into your fragile minds.”
 
A release party for Aggravatin’ Rhythms is planned for February 19 at the Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn with special guests Black Flamingos and a rare performance by the legendary Purple K’nif!
 
Track List:
1. Aggravatin’ Rhythms
2. Instigator
3. Ghost Train
4. The Sinister Urge
5. Uprising!
6. The Spy
7. Kreepy Krawl
8. Wake Up Screaming
9. Three Blue Stars
10. Concussion
11. Head One
