We released Propagandhi’s classic first album How to Clean Everything back in 1993 and are celebrating the 20th anniversary with a new edition on August 20th! Guitarist Chris Hannah explains his reasoning for it, “Maybe it’s the bath-salts talking, but I have come believe that there is value in having something that haunts you until you are dead. I give you… How To Clean Everything, the 20th anniversary edition.” The reissue includes the full album (duh), the 3 outtakes that Fat Mike cut from the record, and a super rare 4-song HTCE demo. Of course the album was re-mastered from the original analog reels AND, this is the neat part, we are offering an exclusive Tab Book for the entire album! With both guitar and bass transcribed by Chris himself, the book will be available bundled with the reissue. 20 years on and these gents are still hard at work. You can catch them on tour in Europe and once a month you can listen to Chris and Derek Hogue’s (from G7) Escape Velocity Radio, a monthly podcast that dips into such subject matter as science, philosophy, history and origins of consciousness. The podcast has nothing to do with this release of course but it reminds us of the journey these guys have taken and continue to be as relevant today, as they were 20 years ago when they released their breakout record How To Clean Everything.
L.A. bluegrass punks Old Man Markley just embarked on a summer tour with the Dropkick Murphys in support of their latest offering, Down Side Up. Just to get you pumped up for the upcoming dates the band put together a ton of footage from their winter tour with DKM. Live shots, backstage antics, snowball fights, ping pong, tour van tomfoolery… it’s all in there. And it’s set to 6 songs from their latest album! Not that there was any question, but these kids know how to have a good time, on and off stage. Enjoy!
Holy, where does time go? It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since the release of RISE AGAINST’s landmark album Revolutions Per Minute. We’re stoked to celebrate the 10th anniversary with the release of RPM10, out today! This enhanced edition of Revolutions Per Minute features 10 bonus tracks of demos along with the originally recorded album and expanded packaging, including personal accounts from the band members about the creation of the album. RPM10 is the perfect nod to an album that defined a genre and hasn’t lost a bit of steam over the past 10 years. Head over to Alternative Press and read a track by track by singer Tim McIIrath. Then go to SPIN where they’re premiering the demo version of Heaven Knows!
RPM10, the 10th Anniversary Edition of RISE AGAINST’S landmark album Revolutions Per Minute, comes out on May 28th but you can hear a song premiere of the demo version of “Like the Angel” over at Rolling Stone right now! Then, head over here to order your copy today.
Canada’s proudest pop-punk band, Chixdiggit! celebrate 20 years as a band this year! These bards of the north know how to write a catchy, fast paced tune or two and on July 23rd, we’ll be releasing Double Diggits! Say what? Pay close attention because this release is legit. Classic Chixdiggit! albums Born On the First of July and From Scene To Shining Scene are getting a makeover. Both albums were originally released on Fat’s skinnier counterpart Honest Don’s but never quite received the attention they deserved. This is why we not only re-mastered both albums, but combined them onto one fully loaded disc, what with the 8 super rare bonus tracks we also tacked on! Vinyl nerds rejoice because while both LP’s have been out of print, we are reissuing them complete with the bells and whistles of the CD (re-mastered plus bonus tracks). Stay tuned for Chixdiggit! tour dates and get ready to light those firecrackers on the First of July!
