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!

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!
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!
