Listen to a brand new song premiering over at Alternative Press from the Swingin’ Utters “Chain Gang Reaction(ary)” from their upcoming 7", Stuck in a Circle. The a-side is from this year’s extraordinary Poorly Formed album while the b-sides include a previously unreleased original alongside the band’s take on the NUFAN classic “Not Your Savior”. Stuck In a Circle comes out on Tuesday, but you can get a copy now. The Swingin’ Utters are currently on tour and you can view their dates here!
We’re stoked to announce a special split tour 7" with Off With Their Heads and Morning Glory! The 7" features new material from both bands and will be available exclusively at shows on their upcoming tour. Off With Their Heads deliver two songs including a moving cover of Morning Glory’s “Care of Me” and a rerecorded version of “Always Alone” originally off their sophomore album, Home on Epitaph. Morning Glory recorded the brand new track “Nationality Anthem” with Jesse Cannon at Cannon Found Soundation Recording Studios. Brian Viglione of Dresden Dolls and now Violent Femmes fame is featured on the drums. Ezra describes the song as “a rocker of a tune” with “a good universal, one world, one web, type message.” OWTH and MG kick off their December tour in Norfolk, VA on December 8th. Remember, this is a limited pressing (yes, it’s on colored vinyl! 2 colors in fact!!) and not available at stores, so don’t miss this tour!
Here’s Ezra of MG’s take on the whole thing:
I’ve heard that Off With Their Heads are total jerks who don’t know how to play their instruments or drink. And Morning Glory are a bunch of softy wanna-be indie kids who need to stop listening to Barry Manolo and crying. So in the spirit of debunking myths we decided to do a split 7" with some brand new tunes. I for one can’t wait to go out, have some fun, and prove that only some of that is half true. Anyone who hears these new tracks will know both bands like to rock, drink and sing along.

Last year we were all, “Xmas Has Been X’ed”, but this year we’re gonna give the Holidays a try. And we’re thankful that Masked Intruder is here to teach us about giving and receiving, and even a little bit about borrowing and taking. You guessed it, we’ve got a Yule-themed release from those festive finks and it’s called “Under The Mistletoe”! The 2-song 7" will be out December 10th on Fat Wreck Chords, while those helpful little elves at Red Scare will have the songs available in digital format on 11/26. Step aside Bing and Mariah, these songs are gonna take over your Xmas parties, and we got a chance to interrogate the holiday hoods and got a quote from them here:
“People may not know that we love Christmas, but we do! Santa is like a hero to us. I mean, hitting every house in the world in one night? Truly amazing!”
