Watch an explosive new PEARS video today! The title track, “Green Star,” is premiering in two places. Deutschland, go to Visions. For the rest of the world, Substream has you covered. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of their latest collection of punk rock fury, you can do so here! Then, check out their tour dates which include a number of festivals, a run with the legendary Subhumans, and a just-announced tour with Valient Thorr! Vocalist, Zach Quinn stated the following: “This is a song that touches on compromising parts of who you are for the sake of survival; becoming your lie so that you may survive. I suppose this video ends with a ceremony of kissing the old you goodbye.”
The Unraveling, Rise Against’s very first album, came out exactly 15 years ago! We love this album and figured this was a perfect time to press it on colored vinyl for the first time ever! You can pre-order it now, along with a re-print of the very first Rise Against Fat t-shirt! In case there’s any doubt about how well this album has held up over time, go listen on Bandcamp or Spotify, and don’t miss out on this one-time color re-press of only 500 copies!
There’s a couple things we’ve learned while partying with Mean Jeans. First, if you hang out for too long, you’ll end up like this. Second, these guys are every bit as eccentric as their album covers indicate. No wonder they crank out such inspired, kick-ass, genre-defying music. Their latest masterpiece, Tight New Dimension, is out today, so you can finally snag your very own copy and get the party turnt! Then, if you think you can handle it, catch their insane live show and find out what the hell we’re talking about.
We know half of you are already completely baked with it being 4/20 and all, but we’ve got something that’ll get you even more lifted. Head over to Brooklynvegan and get high on the full-album stream of Mean Jeans’ new record Tight New Dimension. Then, check them out live and pre-order your copy today! Tight new dimension, indeed.
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve written about Useless ID but rest assured, that’s about to change. First up, you can head to our youtube channel to listen to the title track from their new EP, We Don’t Want the Airwaves, due out May 6th. “We Don’t Want the Airwaves” is your first taste of the new, back-to-their-roots Useless ID album, coming this summer! And in case the cover and title didn’t clue you in, the song is Useless ID’s ode to the Ramones. With today being the 15-year anniversary of Joey Ramone’s passing, and with the 40th anniversary of the release of the first Ramones album coming up in about a week, this heartfelt tribute from Israel’s finest demonstrates the extent of the Ramones’ global impact. Not to mention that our buddy Ray Carlisle (Teenage Bottlerocket) lends his pipes to this infectious tune! Rounded out by three tracks that will remain exclusive to this 7", you should probably pre-order this EP—limited to 550 copies—right now! Or fight for one later!
