The MAD CADDIES are set to release their retrospective titled Consentual Selections on July 22nd! With 5 studio albums, an EP, and 1 live record under their belts, they were unsure of how to collect their best songs and decided to call upon their fans to vote for their picks. The result is 22 fan favorite hits and to sweeten the pot, the band has included two new tracks. This release will be available on CD, digitally and on double vinyl with a limited pressing of 1,000! In addition, the packaging and booklet boast a track by track commentary written by the Mad Caddies and over 150 photos. Don’t worry folks, this is just a wee thank you from the lads themselves as they aren’t calling it quits! They are currently recording a new album and have tour plans set for this year. Stay tuned for details!

GOOD RIDDANCE, the legendary pioneers of melodic hardcore, are set to release Capricorn One on July 6th. In between putting out many acclaimed full-length albums, GOOD RIDDANCE kept themselves busy releasing a bevy of material via 7" singles. Capricorn One is a comprehensive collection of all these singles, as well as 6 previously unreleased tracks and other rarities. All the songs on the album have been digitally remastered by Jason Livermore of Blasting Room (Rise Against, Descendents, NOFX) fame. To complete the package, Capricorn One features a track by track commentary written by singer Russ Rankin. Here’s a little taste of what he penned regarding the album as a whole:
Throughout the history of Good Riddance there have been numerous songs which, for whatever reason, we weren’t able to include on our primary releases. Many of these tunes were frequently played live and most of them are still some of our own personal favorites.
Now that we are finished we felt it would be cool for our fans to be able to check out these hidden or obscurely released snapshots of our band during the apex of it’s existence. We hope they bring back fond memories for our fans and that, even if just for a moment, they can be transported back to a different time and place.

STRUNG OUTâs beloved Element of Sonic Defiance is being released on June 8th as part of our Classic Vinyl Series. This release marks the first time it will be available on vinyl and commemorates the 10th anniversary of Element. Weâve got a limited amount of color vinyl available so snatch it up by clicking here, your entire order will ship in June. Take a peek at what Jake and Jordan put together about the release:
The Element of Sonic Defiance was a very special and important album in the progression of Strung Out. We can remember writing it and feeling like we had no limits or boundaries on us and that it was the most dynamic stuff we had written up âtil that point. It may have seemed like a big change to our fans but it really was an honest extension of a lot of the stuff we were doing on Twisted By Design, as well as our first recording with Chris. At the time it seemed like a lot of people didn’t quite get it, but now it’s become a cult classic to a lot of our fans. It’s for sure an album we’re all quite proud of and we wouldn’t change nothing about it. We’re happy that it’s finally coming out on vinyl for all our fans that still love records.
