Bad Cop/Bad Cop kicked off their HUGE North American tour with The Interrupters last night! Get pumped for when the tour inevitably hits your podunk town by heading to Brooklyn Vegan to watch the new video for “Sugarcane,” from their debut full-length, Not Sorry.
Let’s just get right to it. Today, you’ll get your first taste of the new Dead To Me EP, I Wanna Die in Los Angeles. Head to The Onion A.V. Club to listen to the title track now! Dead To Me’s first new material in five years doesn’t drop until October 21st, but you can pre-order the EP now. Stay tuned, because we’ll be announcing tour dates soon!
NOFX’s new album, First Ditch Effort, comes out this Friday! The album arrives just months after the release of their New York Times best-selling autobiography, NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories, and it’s no coincidence that the two are intertwined. As Fat Mike explains, “This album is more personal than anything I’ve ever done before, because once we put everything out there in the book, it opened all of these doors as far as what I want to sing about.” So go to Consequence of Sound now and listen to the album in its entirety! In case you missed it, go to the FAT YouTube channel and watch the Funny or Die-produced video for “Oxy Moronic.” Pre-order your copy today! Then, catch them on tour with label-mates, PEARS and Useless ID this November!
Night Birds dug deep into their vault to produce their new EP, Who Killed Mike Hunchback?, the second installment in our Original Demos series. The six songs showcase the band in its earliest incarnation, with their original guitarist, Mike Hunchback. Today, the entire EP is premiering on Clrvynt. We pressed a limited run of just 1,500 records, so grab yours while you still can. Then, catch them next month on a flurry of dates with the Descendents!
Strung Out’s most recent album, last year’s incredible Transmission.Alpha.Delta — a truly cohesive album from front to back — raised the bar for melodic, metallic punk rock. Creating an album of songs that all work together can often mean that great songs are left behind…not because they didn’t make the cut, but because they didn’t fit the album’s vibe. “Crows” is one such song. Leaning on Strung Out’s knack for melodic guitar lines and catchy choruses, “Crows” recalls the poppier moments of the band’s catalog and deserves to be slotted in right next to classics like “Paperwalls” or “Swan Dive.” Go listen to “Crows” right now over at Alternative Press! Strung Out kicks off their massive fall tour today! Don’t miss it.
Guitarist, Jake Kiley: “We wanted to save this one to hold you guys over while we work on a new album that we plan to record next year, looking forward to working it into the setlist! See you all on our upcoming tour with Pennywise!”
