Amsterdam-based drunk-reggae-punks, Jaya The Cat, have today released their new album ‘A Good Day For The Damned’ through Bomber Music.

Commenting on the album’s release, vocalist Geoff Legadec said “After five years of late nights and questionable life decisions, we’re happy to announce that today is a good day for the damned. Our fifth studio album is out now online and in discerning record stops everywhere. We hope you love it as much as we love you!”

More info:

Originating in Boston, Massachusetts in 1998, Jaya the Cat promptly relocated to Amsterdam, Netherlands after their first European tour. With a crew of diverse and international musicians, they continue perfecting the art of making that pure musical cocktail to get you through this night and on to the next – With equal parts reggae, punk, ska, a splash of electronics and a sprig of dub with a shot of whiskey on the side.

‘A Good Day For The Damned’ is a natural progression of Jaya The Cat’s unique and upbeat sound. Winding down city streets and across moonlit beaches, staggering past carnivals and drunken sunrises, come 15 new tales of heartbreak and happiness, political confusion (and who hell isn’t confused nowadays with that orange haired maniac running things), existential madness, but in the end, overall optimism.

Jaya The Cat are:

Geoff Lagadec – Vocals and Guitar
Karl Smith – Guitar , Keys, Backing Vocals
Jan Jaap Onverwagt – Bass, Keys
Dave “The Germ” Germain – Drums, Percussion

THE CREEPSHOW STREAM NEW ALBUM, ‘DEATH AT MY DOOR,’ AT DREADCENTRAL.COM

September 12, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – Canadian punk rock band The Creepshow will released their awaited 6th studio album, Death At My Door, on Friday, September 15th via Stomp Records. In celebration, the band has partnered today with DreadCentral.com to stream the record in its entirety. Fans can pre-order the record now at iTunes and BandCamp.
Stream Death At My Door now at DreadCentral.com: http://bit.ly/2ffqEmX
Death At My Door features ten tracks of raging, bloodcurdling and raucously rebellious fury showcase the very best from this roadharderned group of beautiful misfits. The haunting vocal stylings of Kenda Legaspi soar seamlessly over Chuck Coles’ buzzsaw sharp guitar lines and the ragtime gospel organs/keys of the Reverend McGinty; all the while held together by the hard-driving stand-up double-bass slapping rhythms of Sean McNab and the impossibly violent percussive assault of Sandro Sanchioni on drums. From the defiant and empowering “Sticks & Stones” and the incredibly anthemic “Til Death Do Us” to the circle-pit inducing “Tomorrow May Never Come” and the eerily heartwrenching ballad “My Soul To Keep”, Death At My Door is a diverse and addictive album from a genre-defying band who are at the very top of their game… Don’t sleep on this one, because you never know what’s waiting for you just outside your door.

1. Death At My Door

NEW QUICKSAND ALBUM INTERIORS TO BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 10 ON EPITAPH

NEW QUICKSAND ALBUM INTERIORS TO BE RELEASED ON NOVEMBER 10 ON EPITAPH

SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR “ILLUMINANT” TODAY

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES ON SALE NOW

New York City post-hardcore band Quicksand are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Interiors, their first album in 22 years. Interiors features the band’s original (and only) lineup of drummer Alan Cage, frontman/guitarist Walter Schreifels, bassist Sergio Vega, and guitarist Tom Capone. The album will be released on November 10 on Epitaph.

Quicksand have also shared a new video for the first song shared off the album titled “Illuminant,” the lead single and opening track from Interiors.

Watch the video for “Illuminat” now: https://youtu.be/xgIJatX2uug

With its heavy but melodic guitar lines, intense rhythms, and emotionally charged lyrics, “Illuminant” shows the scope of Quicksand’s influence on post-hardcore and indie-rock bands over the last two decades.

Recorded at Studio 4 Recording in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, Interiorswas produced and engineered by Will Yip (The Menzingers, Title Fight, Pianos Become the Teeth). While the album finds Quicksand embracing the cathartic, guitar-driven dynamic of their earlier work, Interiors also takes on a wider spectrum of sound.

“It was all just about being ourselves and who we were as well as who we are,” says Schreifels of the making of Interiors. “We did it for us completely.”

Pre-orders for Interiors are at: http://www.quicksandnyc.com

 

INTERIORS TRACKLIST:

1. Illuminant

2. Under The Screw

3. Warm And Low

4. >

5. Cosmonauts

6. Interiors

7. Hyperion

8. Fire This Time

9. Feels Like A Weight Has Been Lifted

10. >>

11. Sick Mind

12. Normal Love

 

Formed in 1990, Quicksand made their full-length debut with Slip—a 1993 release recently praised by The A.V. Club as “a nearly flawless record that combines the irony and heaviness of Helmet with Fugazi’s penchant to dismantle sound in the most energetic ways.” Arriving in 1995, their sophomore album Manic Compressionappeared at #1 on the Top Five Best Post-Hardcore Records list from LA Weekly (who noted that “if there were any justice in the world, Quicksand would have been the biggest underground band of the ’90s”).

“We were very influenced by Fugazi and Jane’s Addiction” says Schreifels of the band’s beginnings. “But we were doing it in a certain context with an energy that was just special and unique and kind of shined through.”

Throughout the early ’90s, Quicksand toured with bands like Helmet, Fugazi, Rage Against the Machine, and Anthrax. After disbanding in late 1995, they reunited for a one-night performance in June 2012. They’ve since appeared at festivals like FYF Fest and Pukkelpop, and in 2013 embarked on their first North American tour in 15 years.

Additionally, Quicksand will tour North American this fall; tickets on sale now.

MU330 – Don’t Worry Don’t Stress

A great new track by the legendary MU330:

Don’t Worry Don’t Stress

“MU330 rejects the violence and hate speech of alt right nazis in Charlottesville. White supremacy must be stomped out and uprooted from this country. Let’s throw these tired ideas in the garbage once and for all. There should be no safe space anywhere on the political spectrum for a group of people that advocate genocide, anti-Semitism, and the oppression of minorities. As a country, we need to stop defending such vile behavior. This has to stop, and our president must be held accountable for defending such hateful ideology. Are you thinking, “wait, I’m a conservative and I’m not a racist!”? That’s great! The good news is that you can be a conservative while rejecting nazis and a racist president that defends them.

100% of all donations from downloading this new MU330 tune will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Peace, MU330″

RANCID’S NEW ALBUM ‘TROUBLE MAKER’ OUT NOW

Rancid’s ninth studio album Trouble Maker is now in stores. Trouble Maker was produced by Rancid’s longtime producer and founder of Epitaph Records, Brett Gurewitz. Watch previously released videos of the band performing singles “Telegraph Avenue” and “Ghost of a Chance” or head over to Rancid’s YouTube channel for more performance videos from every song on the album!

Listen to Trouble Maker now:

http://open.spotify.com/album/0IJ8KmhJausnsCjUvgM5vY

Emerging from the blue-collar swamps of Berkeley, California, Rancid has now been a living, breathing punk rock band for over a quarter century. Back in 1991, after the demise of their much beloved first band, Operation Ivy, founding members Tim Armstrong (vocals, guitar) and Matt Freeman (bass, vocals) decided to do the impossible — start an even better band. Thus, Rancid. Signing with Epitaph Records, the band released their first album Rancid in 1993. Shortly thereafter, Lars Frederiksen (vocals, guitar) joined the band, because… well, are you going to tell him he can’t? The result, in 1994, was Let’s Go.

In 1995, Rancid released the classic platinum selling …And Out Come The Wolves. You still remember when you first heard it. They followed with the even more ambitious Life Won’t Wait in 1998, and in 2000, Rancid released another album entitled Rancid, just to see if anyone was paying attention. After Indestructible in 2003, Branden Steineckert (drums) joined to solidify Rancid’s current line-up. They subsequently released the albums Let The Dominos Fall (2009) and Honor Is All We Know (2014).

Through it all, Rancid has remained fiercely independent, never losing their loyalty to community or each other. Their music confronts political and social issues, while balancing personal tales of love, loss, and heartbreak with attitude. Rancid gives their listeners a community where everyone can belong. By carrying on the traditions and spirit of the original punk rock bands that came before, Rancid has become a legend an inspiration to punk bands that have come after.

Rancid and Dropkick Murphys will be co-headlining From Boston To Berkeley Tour, kicking off July 27 in Bangor, ME and wrapping August 26 in Southern California. Each night will culminate with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys on stage together for a joint encore.
