The wait is over! We’ve been releasing live videos of Sundowner’s Little Elephant Sessions performances weekly and today is the finale! Below, watch Chris McCaughan play “Great Lakes/Great Escapes,” an acoustic take on a great Lawrence Arms tune. Then, pre-order Little Elephant Sessions today.
We’re thrilled to announce that on July 22nd, we’ll be releasing Anti-Flag’s career-spanning collection, A Document of Dissent: 1993-2013. Comprised of 26 tracks, culled from 9 full-length albums spanning six labels, this is the essential Anti-Flag. The real gem, as a music fan, are their insightful and in-depth liner notes. The band illustrates each song’s history and includes a biographical timeline of the band’s history alongside world events and how some of those events inspired classic Anti-Flag songs. Below, watch a video of the band providing a run-down of just what went into this collection. Then, head here to pre-order your copy today. Don’t miss them on tour, they’ve just announced a bunch of Summer dates.
What can we say, we LOVE vinyl so we couldn’t pass up the chance of releasing The Copyrights new 7". No Knocks comes out this summer and contains three fast and furious pop punk tunes from these Midwestern Salukis. The tunes are so catchy and fun that you’ll wish you didn’t have to hold down a day job so you could follow The Copyrights on their current tour with The Lawrence Arms. You can check those dates, plus their upcoming tour dates with 7 Seconds here! Pre-order the 7" next Monday and look out for a new album on Red Scare later this year!
Free at last! Masked Intruder’s brand new album M.I. is out now! Check out the cool video for the album’s first single “The Most Beautiful Girl,” then listen to the full album premiere at Alternative Press! Head here to order their album, and view their tour dates below.

One of the most home grown, legit music festivals—Punk Rock Bowling—is taking place this weekend! Among the proudest moments of our long history as a label was winning the tournament in 2010! We’re primed to regain the title this year, and as usual, a boatload of our bands are playing. It’s a real family affair over in the dry, smoky heat of Las Vegas, and seeing old friends, going to shows, and well, gambling (duh) makes it all worthwhile. You can often find Billy from D4 in the Bingo room, Floyd at the pool, and Jason Hall from Western Addiction at the slots… okay, the guitar shop. Here’s where & when you can catch all of the Fat bands, IF you already have tickets as they’re all sold out!
Friday – Western Addiction at Beauty Bar
Saturday – Night Birds at Fremont Country Club
Sunday – Masked Intruder at the Festival
Sunday – Old Man Markley at Fremont Country Club
Monday – NOFX, Good Riddance, Bad Cop/Bad Cop at the Festival
See you at the shows, on the lanes and wandering the casino!
