Banner Pilot, Resignation Day out today! Free download of “Overwinter”

Banner Pilot’s Resignation Day is out today and you can order it on CD or vinyl by clicking here! This is a re-release, remixed and remastered by Jacques Wait (The Soviettes, Off With Their Heads, Dear Landlord). Check out the two bonus songs that are out of print and hear a full album stream by clicking here! Additionally, we are giving away “Overwinter” as a free download so click here to get it right now! Take a gander at what Banner Pilot has cooking below:

"We’re stoked to get this release sounding the way we wanted it, and it feels like we’re finally able to do the songs justice. A few people who have heard it so far have said things like ‘I had no idea there was a lead in that part!’, and that’s cool to hear ’cuz we forgot some of that stuff was recorded, too!

Next up for us is Riot Fest and then a tour with our pals The Dopamines down to The Fest. Should be great. We’re working away on our next album and have about 7 songs that seem solid. Aiming to record next spring hopefully!"

Fat signs OLD MAN MARKLEY! New MP3! NOFX hit the road in January, 2011!

When I hear someone say ‘newgrass’ I’m usually thinking it’s got something to do with a dealer getting a new connection or a dumb thing about resurfacing an outfield, but for the kids in Old Man Markley it’s more of a way of life. Nine punks playing together since 2007 with a penchant for old timey porch type shit and red white and blue acoustic guitars? Violins? Girls in the band? A fucking homemade washtub bass??? That’s right folks, we heard their album and had to have them. On October 26th, we’ll release a two song 7” titled For Better, For Worse and you can hear the title track by clicking here! Hell, we are giving it away for free, so download it right now and get stoked for their full length which comes out early 2011. Take a gander at their tour dates in September/October by going here.

And now, a word from Joey of OMM:

The night was moist. It was a Tuesday. We all sat patiently at Mark Stern of Youth Brigade’s house (name drop #1), glaring at a cell phone. It rang. Fat Mike (name drop #2) was on the other end. He said he wanted to put out the studio record we had already recorded (with Joby Ford from the Bronx, name drop #3) but not released yet. We said cool. We decided to wait until January to release the album and a 7” in October. It’s a lot easier to start with 7” and work up to 12”. “For Better, For Worse” would be the A-side and we thought a punk cover would be good for the b-side of the 7”. Screeching Weasel’s “The Science of Myth” was something we had fiddled around with, pun intended, and FM was down. We worked out an OMM arrangement and knocked out the song in a 17 hour day (with Jason La Rocca from the Briggs, name drop #4). The rest is future history.

The Bouncing Souls, Cobra Skulls and Old Man Markley will be joining NOFX on their first southeastern tour in more than three years. You can check out the dates below. Additionally, they’ve just announced they’ll be heading to Australia & New Zealand in December. Take a peek at what Fat Mike had to say about it here!

NOFX, The Longest EP out today!

I was going to be funny and write a really long drawn out boring news post to commemorate release day for NOFX’s The Longest EP. Get it? Eh, I’m tired and fuck, Fat Mike says it better anyway so take a look at what he wrote below. In the meantime, here’s the gist; The Longest EP is a collection of 30 EP tracks from 1987 to 2009, plus rarities, out of print stuff and previously unreleased outtakes and it comes out today, hurray! You can listen to a full album stream compliments of AOL/Spinner by clicking here! Dan Sites, who designed the cover art for The Longest Line lent his talents to The Longest EP artwork, check it out here! You can order this release digitally, CD or on vinyl by going here.

We have a new CD that just came out called “The Longest EP”, but I am suggesting to not buy it. Instead you should go to a store and buy each individual EP. The Longest Line, Never Trust a Hippy, Cokie the Clown, Dinosaurs Will Die, The PMRC can suck on this, Regaining Unconciousness, and the many compilations that some of the songs can be found on. You should be able to buy all of them for a mere 38 bucks. Well worth it. Never mind about the two unreleased songs or the super hard to find S/M airlines 7 inch. Those songs aren’t very good anyway. Once again, don’t buy the Longest EP for $10 through Fat Wreck Chords or Interpunk. Take the $38 dollar option. Thank you, NOFX
