GOOD RIDDANCE, the legendary pioneers of melodic hardcore, are set to release Capricorn One on July 6th. In between putting out many acclaimed full-length albums, GOOD RIDDANCE kept themselves busy releasing a bevy of material via 7" singles. Capricorn One is a comprehensive collection of all these singles, as well as 6 previously unreleased tracks and other rarities. All the songs on the album have been digitally remastered by Jason Livermore of Blasting Room (Rise Against, Descendents, NOFX) fame. To complete the package, Capricorn One features a track by track commentary written by singer Russ Rankin. Here’s a little taste of what he penned regarding the album as a whole:
Throughout the history of Good Riddance there have been numerous songs which, for whatever reason, we weren’t able to include on our primary releases. Many of these tunes were frequently played live and most of them are still some of our own personal favorites.
Now that we are finished we felt it would be cool for our fans to be able to check out these hidden or obscurely released snapshots of our band during the apex of it’s existence. We hope they bring back fond memories for our fans and that, even if just for a moment, they can be transported back to a different time and place.
Brand New Lungs marks the first release of new material from the Swingin’ Utters in seven years! The 7â will be available via vinyl and digitally and will feature two songs from their upcoming fall full-length and one exclusive to the 7â. Additionally, weâve pressed this 7â in two different colors, one you can procure from our mail order, the other will be available exclusively at the Swinginâ Utters shows.

STRUNG OUTâs beloved Element of Sonic Defiance is being released on June 8th as part of our Classic Vinyl Series. This release marks the first time it will be available on vinyl and commemorates the 10th anniversary of Element. Weâve got a limited amount of color vinyl available so snatch it up by clicking here, your entire order will ship in June. Take a peek at what Jake and Jordan put together about the release:
The Element of Sonic Defiance was a very special and important album in the progression of Strung Out. We can remember writing it and feeling like we had no limits or boundaries on us and that it was the most dynamic stuff we had written up âtil that point. It may have seemed like a big change to our fans but it really was an honest extension of a lot of the stuff we were doing on Twisted By Design, as well as our first recording with Chris. At the time it seemed like a lot of people didn’t quite get it, but now it’s become a cult classic to a lot of our fans. It’s for sure an album we’re all quite proud of and we wouldn’t change nothing about it. We’re happy that it’s finally coming out on vinyl for all our fans that still love records.
For those of you that have recently been hiding under a rock, the 12th annual Punk Rock Bowling Tournament took place this past weekend in Las Vegas. Four days of punk shows, gambling, boozing, various other unmentionable activities, and, you guessed it, bowling. It was the largest field in tournament history (over 200 teams!), as a matter of fact.
So, after 11 years of graciously bowing out in the early rounds of competition, we decided that this year we would actually try. And, naturally, we won the whole goddamn thing! That’s right nonbelievers, 1st fucking place!!! We decimated the hopes and dreams of hundreds of other teams and boy did it feel great. Now we’ve got two 1st place trophies to show off, the one we stole from the Epitaph office years ago, and our very own.
Check out some pics and bask in the glorious glow of the best bowlers in the known universe, The Pin Ladens.
