On this day – July 31st – the second anniversary of his passing, we remember our friend Tony Sly, and honor his tributes to the family he loved so much.
For Brigitte, Fiona, and Keira.
You heard us right. Less Than Jake is taking over the Canadian Rockies, will be eating Poutine in Montreal and looking for orcas off the coast of Vancouver this October! Less Than Jake have not toured Canada properly in four years but that’s all about to change. The ten day tour weaves into almost every province and they’re bringing the thunder with Big D And The Kids Table and The Interrupters as support. Less Than Jake are wrapping up Warped Tour and JUST celebrated their 365th WARPED SHOW! Wowza, right? Take a look at what that celebration looked like here! If you haven’t watched their latest video for “Do the Math”, you should do so now as it’s a real homage to Fantasia. It is a perfect depiction of what separates Less Than Jake from the herd. We released the Do the Math 7" on June 10th; the a-side of which is from last year’s exceptional See the Light album while the b-side, “Connect the Dots,” is a previously unreleased song from their See The Light recording sessions. So, we’ve definitely given you a Tuesday doozy of great news, Canaduh!

Well, watch the video for the title track and then grab your copy of wax here. Don’t forget to catch them on tour as they’ll be tearing up the States all summer!
Old Man Markley is taking a well-deserved break after touring nearly non-stop following the release of last year’s sophomore album, Down Side Up. While on their travels, they stopped at the infamous annual Punk Rock Bowling festival in Las Vegas and filmed a video for “Train of Thought.” A contemplative song whose sentiment really captures the life of a road worn and weary touring band, you can watch the video at Vice/Noisey right now. Make sure to follow Old Man Markley on Instagram and Twitter as they’ll be keeping everyone updated on what they have in store for 2015! Read what Old Man Markley had to say about their video below:
The song “Train of Thought” seemed appropriate to film at PRB… With so many activities to pull you in any direction – bowling, shows, pool parties and things we shouldn’t mention here. In this video we captured anyone that crossed our “trains” path and included them in the filming! This song was written by Joey Garibaldi and Todd Fenton, who aptly describes the song: “Control is an illusion, except when you’re out of it. Same could be said for perception. The mistakes of the past and pressures from the future are what make us the same, not different.” We hope the video reflects the chaos and serendipitous nature of crossing paths with people and being open to the experiences that follow such interactions.
Two things you can always rely on from Morning Glory: compelling, engaging music and innovative, boundary-pushing videos. They’ve outdone themselves on their latest video, which is more like a short film set to music. Directed by Christopher J. Aran and culled from their latest album War Psalms, “I Am Machine Gun” is premiering at Big Cheese Magazine. Morning Glory is currently bringing their eclectic brand of punk rock around Europe; don’t miss them! And if this is your first time watching a Morning Glory video, do yourself a favor and check out their past videos.
