Tuesday was an extreme bummer but luckily, Bad Cop/Bad Cop know how to keep things positive. Today, you can head over to Alternative Press to hear their brand new song, “Get Rad.” Vocalist/guitarist Jennie Cotterill describes the song as “the earliest example of the Bad Cop formula: trading vocals, three-part harmonies and having fun. This version was recorded by Davey Warsop at Hurley Studios during the production of Not Sorry in December 2015.” You can check out their debut FAT full-length, Not Sorry, by heading to their bandcamp page, and buy “Get Rad” for a buck! Bad Cop/Bad Cop is currently on tour with the Interrupters, so go get rad with the band in person!
Well, today fucking sucks. Can’t believe we have to do this again…

Direct Hit kicks off their Midwest tour with Tenement tomorrow! Get pumped by heading to the Riot Fest site to watch the new video for “Villain Alcoholic,” from their debut FAT full-length, Wasted Mind. Read what vocalist/guitarist Nick Woods had to say about the song below:
We haven’t done a full tour of the Midwest since my wife got pregnant. So I’m mostly excited to see long-distance pals that I haven’t seen in almost two years. “Villain Alcoholic” is the saddest song on our new album. It might be the saddest one we’ve ever written. Because unlike most of our material, it’s about actual feelings and relationships, no matter how unrealistic they are, and how they fall apart.

face to face kicked off their 25th anniversary year with a bang—reuniting with FAT for their ninth album, Protection —and it’s not over yet. We’ve been basking in the glow all year, and realized when perusing their back catalog, that there was a major (label) problem: two classic face to face albums aren’t available on vinyl and haven’t been for at least 20 years! Therefore, on December 16th, in cooperation with face to face main man Trever Keith’s Antagonist imprint, FAT will reissue the band’s first three albums: Don’t Turn Away, Big Choice, and Face to Face. In addition to being back in print on vinyl, each album has been brilliantly remastered by Joe Gastwirt. As if that’s not enough, each record contains two rare bonus songs, culled from the album’s original recording sessions. You also may notice that we’ve returned Don’t Turn Away to its original navy blue artwork, and added a touch of silver to each cover, a nod to the band’s 25 years. Check back soon, as we’ll be announcing the pre-order shortly! In the meantime, catch face to face live across Canada and the Midwest over the next two weeks.
