Under The Gun Review is premiering a brand new Bad Cop/Bad Cop video for the song “My Life,” off their latest EP, Boss Lady. Directed by Daniel Ybarra and with art direction from singer/guitarist Jennie Cotterill, this video looks like about as much fun as one could possibly have being in a band! Catch them this weekend at Punk Rock Bowling and get in on the fun.
Go to Onion A.V. Club to hear the new MASKED INTRUDER song, “Crime Spree.” It’s the second song from M.I.: a rapid paced 13-song album with pop hooks, punk attitude, and crafty lyrics, to be released on May 27th. In case you missed it, you can still hear the first song we released last month, “The Most Beautiful Girl,” over at Noisey/Vice. Masked Intruder is living life on the lam and the circumstantial evidence is in their tour dates right here! Even though crime seems to pay for these guys, it doesn’t for you. So order your legal copy of M.I. today!
As the release day approaches for Sundowner’s Little Elephant Sessions, we’ll release live video versions of each song weekly leading up to its release on June 10th. Today, we bring you “In The Flicker,” which appeared on his previous full length, We Chase the Waves. If you’re late to the Sundowner game, check out the video for Cemetery West from the latest album on Fat, Neon Fiction. And don’t forget to check back on May 28th for the next Little Elephant Sessions video!
It’s almost time for Punk Rock Bowling, and one of the Fat bands playing this year (for the first time ever) is Western Addiction. With new bassist Tony Teixeira, they’re warming up for Vegas with an epic show alongside The Briefs and Night Birds on Thursday in San Francisco. Friday night at the Beauty Bar will be their Las Vegas debut. Expect a scorching set complete with a brand new song! And at the rate these guys produce new material, this really IS something special! To get you into the spirit, singer/guitarist Jason Hall spent hours toiling away to make the ultimate Punk Rock Bowling Spotify playlist! Deep within the layered track listing is a band that Fat has signed and has yet to announce, so fire up the rumor mill! Lastly, read an article in the SF Weekly about Western Addiction and their ties to Fat.
Check out Joey Cape’s new label One Week Records! Recording acoustic albums at Joey’s home studio in seven days (hence the label name), the inaugural releases are from Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios) and The Flatliners’ Chris Cresswell. Chris explores his most intimate moments on this, his debut solo album. “Recording a ten-song album in seven days is equal parts exciting and challenging, but I truly believe nothing one loves should ever be all too easy. That rewarding feeling only arrives at your door after overcoming a challenge. And wouldn’t life be boring without its challenges?” says Chris. We agree and are happy to announce that Fat Wreck Chords will be releasing a vinyl edition at a later date! For now, go order the digital edition here, available in up to 24-bit resolution (that’s better than CD quality, folks!) for only five bucks!
