Frenzal Rhomb’s new retrospective, We Lived Like Kings (We Did Anything We Wanted): The Best of Frenzal Rhomb, is officially out today! This double album (and single CD) includes all the hits, spanning the band’s 24-year history. Containing 17 tracks never before on vinyl and 17 tracks never before on FAT, this is a must-own album for any discerning Frenzal Rhombite. Head over to Bandcamp, iTunes, or Spotify to listen to it in its entirety! Then, if you haven’t snagged a copy, you can do so here!
Next up, we have a brand new video from Useless ID! Head to Brooklynvegan to watch “Without A Choice,” culled from their latest FAT release, State is Burning. Read what vocalist Ishay Berger had to say about their views on animal cruelty below.
“Animal rights and punk rock go hand in hand. If you care about making a change in this crazy world, you should try and start the revolution within yourself. Useless ID is not a preachy band, but we always felt that Animal Liberation is essential to self-freedom and that it is hypocritical to strive for freedom, while giving a hand to death machines. This animated video was made by our friends Glendon and Isabella. The point of it is pretty simple, don’t do to others what you don’t want them doing to you.”
Don’t miss Useless ID on tour. They’re currently wrapping up their North American tour with NOFX and PEARS tonight in Dallas. Then, they head back west on a batch of shows. Don’t miss it!
Get Dead dropped their fantastic new full-length, Honesty Lives Elsewhere, this past July. They’ve been on a touring tear since its release, having blazed through Europe, Japan, and most of North America. You can get a taste of their wild live show by watching the official video for “She’s a Problem.” Get Dead is back on the West Coast now, finishing out 2016 with the most accurately named band in punk, Guttermouth!
Tuesday was an extreme bummer but luckily, Bad Cop/Bad Cop know how to keep things positive. Today, you can head over to Alternative Press to hear their brand new song, “Get Rad.” Vocalist/guitarist Jennie Cotterill describes the song as “the earliest example of the Bad Cop formula: trading vocals, three-part harmonies and having fun. This version was recorded by Davey Warsop at Hurley Studios during the production of Not Sorry in December 2015.” You can check out their debut FAT full-length, Not Sorry, by heading to their bandcamp page, and buy “Get Rad” for a buck! Bad Cop/Bad Cop is currently on tour with the Interrupters, so go get rad with the band in person!
Well, today fucking sucks. Can’t believe we have to do this again…
Proceeds from the sale of these shirts over the next four years will be donated to organizations working to combat whatever bullshit policies this scumbag attempts to perpetrate on our country and the world.
Direct Hit kicks off their Midwest tour with Tenement tomorrow! Get pumped by heading to the Riot Fest site to watch the new video for “Villain Alcoholic,” from their debut FAT full-length, Wasted Mind. Read what vocalist/guitarist Nick Woods had to say about the song below:
We haven’t done a full tour of the Midwest since my wife got pregnant. So I’m mostly excited to see long-distance pals that I haven’t seen in almost two years. “Villain Alcoholic” is the saddest song on our new album. It might be the saddest one we’ve ever written. Because unlike most of our material, it’s about actual feelings and relationships, no matter how unrealistic they are, and how they fall apart.
