The Cup of Pestilence by Frenzal Rhomb

Frenzal Rhomb

The Cup of Pestilence
Fat Wreck Chords

***Back in the mire of the early nineties, from somewhere beneath a pile of wallet chains and cut-off army pants FRENZAL RHOMB emerged, their white suburban fingers clutching onto goon casks and bucket bongs and other appropriate paraphernalia. Before too long those fingers wrote riffs and those riffs became songs and their voices sung rhyming swear words in perfect three-part harmony. After countless world tours, sharing the stage with everyone from NOFX to Nickelback. Playing all around Australia, from Broome to Bunbury and Bundaberg to Brunswick, offending and entertaining people in equal measure along the way. Being welcomed into people's lives and banned from radio stations, often for the same reasons. The dubious honor of being the most hospitalized band in the world—everything from broken drumming arms and detached guitar-playing retinas to an actual pig-borne tapeworm in the lead singer's brain—it's amazing that Frenzal Rhomb are here at all. But Frenzal Rhomb are still here, and back with their 10th studio album! Recorded, mixed and mastered at The Blasting Room by BILL STEVENSON, JASON LIVERMORE, ANDREW BERLIN and CHRIS BEEBLE; The Cup of Pestilence is 19 songs full of the characters and slightly discomforting ideas that you’ve come to love from Frenzal Rhomb. The stories of good times, beloved friends and slightly less-friendly types, the tales of enlightenment through recreational substances, and some great budgetary ideas for a cash-strapped household. All of this under a serious number of hot riffs and licks, brilliant bass lines, and devastating drum bits sure...

***2021 saw the release of NOFX’s highly acclaimed, 14th studio album Single Album. What fans didn’t know then, is Single Album is only one half of what has ultimiately become NOFX’s very first double album; the second half of which is aptly titled Double Album. Reuniting with punk-rock legends BILL STEVENSON and JASON LIVERMORE for producer / engineering / mixing duties; it’s not hyperbolic to say NOFX are making their best music now. But that's not to imply everything else they’ve done was mediocre, either. Double Album reminds both ardent fans and casual listeners that NOFX weren’t born to follow trends. Indeed NOFX have carved their logo into the veneer of punk-rock culture for decades. With nearly 40 years in this circus, you’re going to meet people and do/see/conspire to get all the wildest shit done. Remember how one of the stipulations of the NOFX book Hepatitis Bathtub was that none of the band members could see what the other ones were writing about them? Well, this time, Mike got permission to blow up the foibles and peccadillos of people in song for maximum velocity and hilarity. There’s “Joanna Constant Teen,” a 78-second tribute to the dominatrix that spent six weeks in Fat Mike’s NYC-based Airbnb during the production run of his musical, Home Street Home. “Alcopollack” is about booking agent David Pollock, who has worked with the band for over 30 years and has lost more than his fair share of clients for his too-brazen honesty. “Fuck Day Six”...

Songs of the Highlands Songs of the Sea by Real McKenzies

Real McKenzies

Songs of the Highlands Songs of the Sea
Fat Wreck Chords

***Founded in 1992 by the larger than life, Scottish punk-rock poet laureate, Mr. Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter-century circumnavigating the globe to bring the McKenzies gospel to an ever-expanding throng of rebels and scallywags With their latest offering, one thing stands out immediately: You already know these songs. Even if you’ve never been to Scotland, even if you’re not a seafaring type, you know them. That’s because the twelve anthems—and make no mistake, these are anthems—The Real McKenzies have picked for this new album have been sung by others for decades, if not centuries. A dual celebration of Scottishness and the band, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Songs of the Highland, Songs of the Sea is comprised entirely of famous traditional sea shanties that are roughly divided, as the record’s title suggest, between land and sea. And even though the idea for the album was initially proposed by guitarist Mario Nieva, these songs speak to frontman Paul McKenzie’s heritage as well as who he is, and who he always has been. Some might have been written long before he was born, but these are still his stories, wound inextricably into his life experiences. Whether a lifelong fan of The Real McKenzies, a seafaring dreamer, or simply a fan of the simple sing-along lullaby, Songs of the Highland, Songs of the Sea is sure to become an instant catalog favorite.

***REISSUED ON 12-INCH VINYL WITH TWO BONUS TRACKS!!! The year was 2012 and COBRA SKULLS had just spent the better part of the past two years on the road in support of their latest full-length Agitations. Amidst all the chaos they continued to write new material. The band couldn’t contain their excitement about a few of their newly penned tracks, so instead of holding onto them until it was time to make another full-length they decided to strike while the iron was hot and dipped into the studio to record them. The three songs that resulted make up the 7” Eagle Eyes. The songs flash that energetic punk style that Cobra Skulls originated with, while still maintaining their genre defying sound. “Eagle Eyes” is a flat out hit. What nobody knew back then, there were two more tracks from the recording that didn’t make the record! 10 years later, we decided it is due time we release the entire Eagle Eyes recording as it was originally intended. Cobra Skulls fans will be clamoring to get their hands on this complete version of the acclaimed Eagle Eyes EP.

***Being a band for 20 years won’t just change you. It changes how you see the world, and your place in it. For long-running Toronto punk mainstays THE FLATLINERS, a new record meant a new opportunity to examine the legacy they’ve inherited, and the one they’ll eventually pass on. New Ruin is a shot of adrenaline from a band striking out at outdated institutions and ideologies via pointed lyrics and their heaviest songs to date, attacking each with a ferocity that will surprise even longtime fans. From the monstrously discordant hits that open the album through the de facto thesis statement of “Heirloom,” it’s clear that The Flatliners are angry in a way we’ve never heard before. At the same time, they’ve never been more in control. Produced by CRESSWELL along with the rest of the band, songs like "Performative Hours” and “Recoil” boil with livewire post-hardcore energy while “Souvenir” and “Big Strum” offer a more tightly coiled aggression that hints at the band’s anthemic punk past. Recorded at Toronto’s Noble Street Studios and Genesis Sound with longtime friend and engineer MATT SNELL, the album sounds both open and immediate, the cumulative effect of two decades performing together.

***Starting in 1996, CIGAR could’ve been a major contender in 21st century punk. Pennywise’s Fletcher Dragge was taken by the trio’s love of melody and straight-up acceleration, which led to the band aligning themselves with SoCal label Theologian Records for their Dragge-produced debut album, 1999’s Speed Is Relative. For the next six years, Cigar (who were named after the winning racehorse in the 1995 Breeders Cup Classic) lived the punk life by relocating to San Diego, appearing on some skate-punk compilations and videos while waiting for their lane to open. And during that time, the members’ lives began to change, from creating families to exploring other musical interests. But here in 2022, with drummer JON SORTLAND having acquired a playing resume that includes the SHINS, BROKEN BELLS and EV KAIN, and JONATHAN HISCHKE joining the band on bass, Cigar are ready for re-ignition with their new full-length The Visitor. In 10 tracks, Cigar easily shatter preconceived notions of young listeners and long-in-the- tooth poonks, alike. The album’s opening salvo, “These Chances,” fires right out of the gate with singer/guitarist RAMI KRAYEM's strident vocal and Sortland’s amphetamine drumming powering the proceedings. Headbangers can find joy in the brisk riffing of “In Armor'' and “Move On.” The Visitor doesn’t let up on velocity or honesty: No detours in the form of four-minute acoustic love songs, trite hip-hop beats or other sonic concessions. Cigar are skate-punk personified, with a well-tuned engine and the knowledge that in punk, only you determine your glory days....

***A great punk album is one that makes you think, feel and want to mosh simultaneously. Escape From The Zoo has struck the perfect balance between all three on their new album Countin’ Cards. It’s something that the band—the louder, faster, punk project that Days N’ Daze’s Jesse Sendejas co- founded with his wife Veronica—has always done, but never quite to this extent. Much of that is down to the circumstances that led up to the recording of these songs—most obviously a global pandemic that allowed for intense self-reflection. This period of isolation coincided with Sendejas getting sober, so not only do the songs that make up Countin’ Cards offer up deep and poignant existential questions about life—as well as the social and political constructs that surround and consume it —but they’re also a reflection of Sendejas’ newfound clarity and the path he’s now trying to take. The result is nine songs that are earnest expressions of everyday struggle and existence. Breakneck and buoyant opener “Heads Up 7 Up” questions conforming to a life in which you’re meant to spend most of your time working. “Shit Show”—which, along with “Jars O’ Fears,” is one of two songs that Lozier mainly wrote and takes lead vocals on—wrestles with thoughts of impending mortality, “Sentient Beer” sees Sendejas question the inspiration and influence, both good and bad that drugs and booze had on him, and “Wasted Years,” as the title suggests, is a melancholy but not self-indulgent rumination on days gone by.

***REISSUED!!! The streets of Santa Barbara, California are a hard place to grow up, and an even harder place to start a band. Nerf Herder are one of the few that have been fortunate enough to escape the squalor and rise above the local scene. The years of hard work and devotion have paid off, and the twelve tracks on American Cheese chronicled the trials and tribulations of becoming a big cheese in a small pond... Ok, if you’ve ever been to Santa Barbara you know that it’s one of the most beautiful and affluent places in the US. If you’ve ever seen or heard Nerf Herder, you’ll know that they’re anything but “hard”, and they don’t come from the “streets.” They are totally hilarious, and the true masters of new wave influenced, quirky poppy punk music. 20 years has passed since the release of this masterpiece, so we saw it fitting to reissue the thing on color vinyl and throw a bunch of bonus digital tracks up to go along with it. Grab your cheese-colored vinyl before they are all gone!

***Everyone’s favorite (and only existing) punk rock all-star cover band ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES are back with their latest offering, Go Down Under. Instead of enhancing (or disgracing, depending on who you ask) one specific genre of music, as is their typical approach, this time they’ve decided to take on the music of an entire continent. As you may have guessed from the album’s title, Australia is the lucky recipient of the Gimmes latest musical makeover. Crikey! Five tracks from proud Aussies the likes of INXS, Olivia Newton-John, and Air Supply, are belted out with the boisterous fun-loving style that only the Gimmes know how to pull off. Didgeridoos be damned, these tunes are all brimming with ripping guitar leads, up-tempo rhythms, and the signature silky smooth vocals of SPIKE SLAWSON. Go Down Under is their first newly recorded material since 2006 and from the opening riff it’s blatantly clear the guys haven’t lost a step. Just to add to the excitement, the vinyl version of the album is available for the first time on 10- inch vinyl! Originally released as a double 7”.

Live In A Dive by RKL

RKL

Live In A Dive
Fat Wreck Chords

***The tenth installment of Fat Wreck’s Live in a Dive series takes us back over 30 years to Eindhoven, Holland. The date is May 12, 1989, not too long before Montecito, CA punks RKL will call it quits (for the first time, anyway). The 17- song set—a good chunk of which is culled from 1987’s album Rock ’n Roll Nightmare—was recorded at famed Eindhoven squat-turned-venue De Effenaar, and is beautifully ragged and raw. Although the band would get back together, things were never quite the same after the members went their separate ways the first time. As such, this record is a document of one of the last points before everything took a dive, of a band holding it together—incredibly well, it has to be said—before everything unraveled. And even though you can’t really hear that tension, when compared to the Double Live in Berlin live album, recorded the year before this one, there does seem to be an extra sense of urgency in these songs. They’re more primal and more ferocious, more intense and more nihilistic. Above all, though, they still sound fun as hell. RKL’s Live in a Dive album—which features incredible art by longtime RKL cover artist Dan Sites —isn’t just a pure representation of the band in all its twisted, untamed glory. It’s not just the sound of a band about to fall off the cliff edge. It also serves as a bittersweet tribute to both Manzullo and Sears, who died in 2005 and 2006 respectively. These songs...

***Founded in 1992 by the larger than life, Scottish punk-rock poet laureate, Mr. Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter-century circumnavigating the globe to bring the McKenzies gospel to an ever-expanding throng of rebels and scallywags. There aren’t many bands that can boast of a three- decade long year career as staggeringly adventurous, wildly tempestuous, and utterly death-defying as The Real McKenzies. Their list of accolades is long. From sharing the stage with the likes of Rancid, Metallica, and Shane McGowan to appearing in film, books, and video games. Float Me Boat is the ultimate collection of kilt-twisting classics from The Real Mckenzies; comprised of 23 rousing refrains that perfectly encapsulate their 30 years as a band. From chart-topping staples like “Chip,” “The Tempest,” and “Drink Some More,” to more recent favorites “Big Foot Steps” and “Due West,” The Real McKenzies have compiled an anthology as legendary as Robert Burns himself. Whether you're a McKenzie lifer or new to the game, these anthemic songs are sure to have you stomping your feet and hoisting a glass. Note. LP release date delayed

A Good Year To Forget by Cape, Joey

Cape, Joey

A Good Year To Forget
Fat Wreck Chords

***Originally known as the singer, songwriter, and founder of both LAGWAGON and BAD ASTRONAUT, JOEY CAPE has established himself as a recognized solo artist over the past 15 years. His solo ventures have allowed him to stretch the bounds of his musical stylings, highlighting more diverse instrumentation, subdued pace, and experimental elements. The one constant, of course, is his unique ability to craft unforgettable songs. As with pretty much everyone on the planet, 2020 was a challenging year for Joey. At the onset he was going through difficult transitions on multiple fronts. Then the pandemic hits, and Joey finds himself dealing with things he had never experienced before all at once. The result is A Good Year to Forget, a record that encapsulates all the trials and tribulations of the 12 months that inspired it. Written entirely in isolation in a makeshift home recording studio at his mother’s house, Joey Cape was able to create a beautiful, warm record that captures the pure essence of its songs. Hushed and haunted, there’s an almost Nick Drakeian poignancy to these 12 songs, especially on the wistful “The Poetry in Our Mistakes” and the forlorn-yet-somehow-uplifting “Saturday Night Fever.” “Come Home,” a song inspired directly by words his mother had spoken to him on the phone, is a beautifully melancholy, slightly folky tune full of hurt and longing that also manages to be reassuring at the same time. Elsewhere, “Under the Doormat” is a harrowingly beautiful ode to a lost love of the past....

No Way Out But Through by Face To Face

Face To Face

No Way Out But Through
Fat Wreck Chords

***FACE TO FACE are a rarity in the music world: A band that not only helped define a sound, but who continue to fine-tune their music with each subsequent release. This is undoubtedly true of the band’s tenth full-length No Way out but Through, a melodic-punk masterpiece teeming with blistering guitar riffs, fleetfingered basslines and vocal harmonies that are so infectious they’ll be rattling around your brain for weeks on end. Then again this should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed face to face’s 30-year history. While their sound is rooted in the West Coast punk genre they helped pioneer, No Way out but Through raises the sonic bar when it comes to songwriting, arranging and musicianship. This time around, singer/guitarist Trever Keith was able to get out of his proverbial comfort zone by renting a cabin near Malibu, California, and holed up with bassist Scott Shiflett as they transformed a collection of their respective demos and ideas into the polished recording you hear today. Production-wise, the band teamed up again with Juno Award winning producer Siegfried Meier and Davey Warsop (Foo Fighters, Green Day) and later was mixed and mastered by Jason Livermore at the legendary Blasting Room. The result is an album that’s sound quality mirrors its sonic weight and is the best-sounding face to face album to date.

***THE LAST GANG hit the ground running with their Fat Wreck Chords debut 7" Sing for your Supper in December 2017. From the second that needle dropped, fans felt the infectious energy these LA punks have become known for. Now about to release their second full-length album, they show no signs of slowing down. One listen to Noise Noise Noise, and you’ll discover a band who has not only pushed their musical boundaries in new and unexpected ways; but as a lyricist, Brenna Red has unlocked a new side of herself, spitting barbs both personal and political at whoever might listen. Noise Noise Noise is nothing if not full of curveballs. The album opens with the “Guns of Brixton”-esque title track, the first of the album’s many forays into guitar upstrokes and elastic basslines. The next curveball comes in the very next track, “WFTW,” the rare punk song that’s four minutes long, and feeling a little bit like Searching For A Former Clarity-era Against Me!, with Red cramming as many syllables into her verses as humanly possible. The Last Gang are at their absolute best on Noise Noise Noise, as they once again teamed up with Cameron Webb (Motorhead, NOFX, Alkaline Trio) to bring their fans every ounce of piss and vinegar they have been so eagerly awaiting.

Ahead of the Carbondale, IL punks’ 20th anniversary in 2022, the foursome have returned with their seventh full-length album, Alone in A Dome. Not that you’d know it was the band’s seventh record—across the course of these 12 songs, the band sounds just as vibrant and vigorous, energetic and youthful, as it ever has. Whether that’s because they recorded most of it in the basement of Carbondale’s Lost Cross punk house, where the band was formed all those years ago, is uncertain, but the spirit of that house, of their youth and of the scene in general, is very much alive and kicking for the record’s half-hour runtime.

Does It Matter? by Clowns

Clowns

Does It Matter?
Fat Wreck Chords

***2020 was going to be a colossal year for CLOWNS. The Melbourne, Australian five-piece was locked into worldwide touring to support their 2019 full-length, and FAT debut, Nature/Nurture. The album included 11 blistering songs that veered from frantic punk to slower, more nuanced, and psychedelic-tinged rock. However, before the band could really roll out their epic touring plans, that nettlesome global pandemic hit, and the world was shut down. Luckily, Clowns are not one to rest on their laurels and harnessed their solitude to write music. The pause on being an active band allowed the group to record a batch of new songs, with two standing out as their favorites. “Does It Matter” is a hook-heavy raucous number that demonstrates the prowess of their current lineup, The b-side “Sarah” explores the dizzying highs and soul-destroying lows of love.

Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes by Propagandhi

Propagandhi

Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes
Fat Wreck Chords

***REMIXED AND REISSUED!!! After 1993’s How To Clean Everything and 1996’s Less Talk, More Rock, Today’s Empires, Tomorrow’s Ashes was Propagandhi’s third and penultimate album on FAT. It marked a transition period for the band. Not only was it their first record after the departure of bassist/vocalist John K. Sampson—who was replaced by Todd Kowalski—but it also saw the start in the shift towards the sound that has now come to define them. The result was an album that, despite singer Chris Hannah’s reservations, truly set the benchmark back then, and does so even more in its new sonic form. Just listen to what opener “Mate Ka Moris Ukun Rasik An” or the caustic title track sound like now, not to mention the still-eye-opening blast of “With Friends Like These Who the Fuck Needs COINTELPRO?”—the lyrical content of which remains as shocking today as it was back then. Intelligent and visceral in equal measure, it’s a record that offers up one of the most vicious indictments of American (and, to be fair, Western) imperialism ever committed to tape. But the band was never quite happy with how the album turned out. It was betterthan it was given credit for. While the pieces were all there, the album lacked sonically in a way the band was never satisfied with. Fast forward almost two decades, when Propagandhi was in the studio with Jason Livermore mixing Victory Lap, and Hannah brought up the issues with Today’s Empires, Tomorrow’s Ashes. Right there they decided...

***MakeWar first burst through the Southern Border Wall and onto the national stage in 2016 with their debut album Developing a Theory of Integrity—a ripping skatepunk / Brooklyn Emo Night hybrid that caught everyone off-guard with its unabashed dynamism and brass balls, while somehow effortlessly remaining faithful to MakeWar’s influences. They followed that up with their Fat Wreck Chords debut Get It Together—a uniquely fresh-eyed and youthful rallying cry, tempered with anger, heartache, and a dash of hardcore rage and virtuosity that belies their relatively short tenure as a band. Pulled from those recording sessions is their brand new 7”, Stay featuring two tracks directly from Get It Together, and two unreleased outtakes. Keep a watchful eye as MakeWar will be continuing their rigorous touring schedule throughout 2021 and 2022.

***GET DEAD were originally drawn together by their love for punk rock, joy of acoustic impurities, desire to keep music simple, and on a lesser scale, their shared affinity for the drink. In fact, Get Dead's first band practice allegedly consisted solely of hollowing out some pineapples, filling them with rum, and “getting sticky”, as Sam (lead singer) puts it. Regardless of their unorthodox start,they did eventually get on track and have since been creating some of the most earnest and satisfying punk rock around. Aftera couple years of playing famously raucous shows in the BayArea the band’s song writing ability caught the ear of NOFX frontman Fat Mike, resulting in three stellar albums over the last eight years. We are excited to now be able to share with you Get Dead's debut album from before Fat Wreck got their hands on them. Letters Home- available for the first time on vinyl- is an essential piece of the GET DEAD collection, giving insight into the early days of the band and how they have evolved into what they are today.

***BACK IN PRINT!!! TONY SLY continues to illustrate his songwriting prowess with the release of his second full-length solo album, Sad Bear. Tony’s somewhat recent foray into recording as a solo artist has proven to be every bit as fruitful as his 20+ years fronting the legendary punk band NO USE FOR A NAME. On his own, Tony trades in the signature electric guitars and aggressive rhythms of NUFAN for a more subdued approach, featuring acoustic instruments and highlighted by his captivating melodies. Sad Bear notes a strong progression from Tony’s first solo outing with an increased emphasis on varied instrumentation that, while robust, somehow delicately plays off Tony’s soothing vocals. As a master of transcribing personal experiences and bemusements into transcendent verse, it follows that the lyrical content of Sad Bear is nothing short of poetic. The songs range from folk to pop, with many genre defying moments in between, but are all sewn together seamlessly with the common thread of innovative and dexterous craftsmanship. Sad Bear serves as a prism that reflects the spectrum of Tony’s songwriting influences including such varied artists as The Beatles, Iron and Wine, Coner Oberst, and Elliot Smith. To further develop the aural layers of the album, Tony utilizes the vocal capabilities of KARINA DENIKE (DANCE HALL CRASHERS) and JOEY CAPE (LAGWAGON) to complement his own. As a whole, the intriguing and unforgettable songs on Sad Bear are a triumphant next step in Tony Sly’s burgeoning solo career.

How To Clean Everything Reissue by Propagandhi

Propagandhi

How To Clean Everything Reissue
Fat Wreck Chords

***BACK IN STOCK!!! In 1993 PROPAGANDHI recorded their first album, How to Clean Everything, and released it via a then fledgling Fat Wreck Chords. Needless to say the album was hugely successful at not only putting the label on the map, but even more so, at establishing Propagandhi as a massive force in the punk scene. Leaning more toward the skate punk tradition than the band’s current work, How To Clean Everything was a clear launch point for the band, filled with aggressive metal riffs and a young snarky delivery of lyrics about human rights, equality, and radical left-wing politics. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of such an important album everyone involved thought a new edition was in order. The reissue includes the full original album, the three outtakes that FAT MIKE cut from the initial record, and a super rare four-song HTCE demo. Of course the album was re-mastered from the original analog reels as well. All in all, the 20th anniversary edition is a worthy update to an absolute classic. LP includes a download.

Most Useless Songs by Useless ID

Useless ID

Most Useless Songs
Fat Wreck Chords

***Israeli punks USELESS ID have been together since 1994, releasing eight full-lengths and a slew of EPs, singles, and compilations. That’s a staggering number of songs to pare down into some kind of definitive portrait of the band. The newest album- a career-spanning greatest hits- titled Most Useless Songs, reaches as far back as the 1999 Fat Wreck Chords compilation Short Music For Short People (“Too Bad You Don’t Get It”), but otherwise draws from the band’s 2000s output, such as No Vacation from the World (2003), Redemption (2005), The Lost Broken Bones (2008), Symptoms (2012), and State is Burning (2016). The liner notes feature commentary on all 16 tracks, written by the band. Most Useless Songs shows the band’s growth throughout the years. That sound continues to evolve, as shown on two new tracks exclusive to Most Useless Songs: the soaring, hopeful “Same Old Revolution” and “Into the Exquisite,” a blistering track that’s classic Useless ID.

Armed with a ukulele, cowbell, tabla drums and his signature voice, Milo takes aim at the current political catastrophe with three stipped down tracks that bring hope to a return to lucidity.

No Use For A Name

Rarities Vol. 2: The Originals
Fat Wreck Chords

***BACK IN STOCK!!! When it comes to CLASSIC Fat Wreck bands NO USE FOR A NAME certainly need no introduction, but here’s the scoop: No Use For A Name were one of the first bands on Fat Wreck Chords and remain a cornerstone of the label roster. Their unique take on California punk emphasized equally innovative and catchy melody, paired with top-flight musicianship. Despite the tragic passing of singer and songwriter TONY SLY in 2012, their presence can still be felt today, as their influence is evident in the work of many other artists. Over the course of their more than 20 year career, No Use For A Name amassed an impressive catalog of albums packed with hit songs. Rarities Vol. 2 features rare versions of songs that have only appeared on compilations along with never before heard demos from the band's Hard Rock Bottom album.

Dancing With The Curse by Get Dead

Get Dead

Dancing With The Curse
Fat Wreck Chords

***BACK IN STOCK!!! If you were to listen to GET DEAD'supcoming album Dancing with the Curse before reading this, you would think it was written about the year 2020. Surprisingly, the band started recording it more than two years ago but it feels perfectly time for today. Look no further than the song “Pepperspray,” written long before the protests of summer 2020. The band had begun collaborating with activist-artist collective INDECLINE on a video before the George Floyd protests erupted. If there was any time to share the message of “Pepperspray,” this was it. While Dancing with the Curse features Get Dead’s signature NorCal punk sound, balancing bombast with up-picked bounce and dirt-smudged acoustic songs, listeners will notice some curious moments. Subtle electronic flourishes lurk in songs like “Disruption,” “Glitch,” “Confrontation,” and “Take It.” The album opens with an atmospheric intro built on singer SAM KING's gravelly voice and hip-hop-inflected cadence—a happy accident. These sonic detours suit a band that isn’t known to stay in one place for too long. The conclusion of a long yet worthwhile journey, Dancing with the Curse is Get Dead’s most self-assured album yet, one perfectly suited to the times: raw, energized, frustrated, but ultimately unbowed.

The Decline - Live At Red Rocks
Fat Wreck Chords

***BACK IN STOCK!!! It has been more than 20 years since NOFX released arguably one of the most important (and looooooongest) song in punk rock history. While the world was a very different place way back in 1999, “The Decline” is still just as relevant (if not more-so) today. After years of teasing to release a live version of this nearly 20 minutes opus in it’s entirety, the time has finally come. NOFX is ready to unleash The Decline Live at Red Rocks. The song was played at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater alongside a full orchestra (BAZ and his Orchestra)! NOFX fans have longed for the day they would get to hear this elusive live track, and now they get it from the comfort of their living room. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve also included a brand new unreleased song on the b-side! Fans will be clamoring to get their hands on this one.

***BACK IN STOCK!!! How often does the leader of one of your favorite bands ask you to do a split album? Where his band covers your songs? Singer-songwriter Frank Turner found himself in that situation last year, when Fat Mike of NOFX asked if he wanted to do a split covers album. West Coast vs. Wessex shows NOFX filtering five of Frank Turner’s songs through their singular sensibility, with Turner doing the same on five NOFX songs. But these aren’t simply double-time versions of Turner’s folk-punk tunes or slow, acoustic reworkings of NOFX’s iconic SoCal punk anthems. Both NOFX and Frank Turner took time to play with the possibilities each other’s music presented. They also put a lot of thought into the songs they chose to cover. Both groups really wanted to songs that presented an opportunity to create something unique, and bring something to the song that really made it their own. For Frank Turner’s side, the result was a tracklist that pulls more or less from deeper in NOFX’s discography. NOFX classic “Bob” being the exception, Turner transforms into a wistful country song. “Perfect Government” is joyously turned into a barroom singalong, along with a punked up “Scavenger Type,” the post-hardcore “Eat the Meek,” and a spare, haunting “Falling in Love.” On the NOFX side, their climactic take on “Substitute” could’ve fit on Punk in Drublic. “Worse Things Happen at Sea” simmers with an ominous portent. The jaunty “Thatcher Fucked the Kids” sounds like a companion to NOFX’s...

***NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! Founded in 1992 by the larger than life, Scottish punk-rock poet laureate, Mr. Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter-century circumnavigating the globe to bring the McKenzies gospel to an ever-expanding throng of rebels and scallywags. There’s not many bands that can boast of a nearly three decade long year career as staggeringly adventurous, wildly tempestuous, and utterly death-defying as The Real McKenzies. Their list of accolades is long. From sharing the stage with the likes of Rancid, Metallica, and Shane McGowan to appearing in film, books, and video games. Fueled by an insatiable appetite to meld driving punk rhythms with traditional Scottish melodies, The Real Mckenzies are set to release their eleventh full-length, Beer & Loathing, on July 3rd. Their latest opus blends guitars and bagpipes with Paul McKenzie spinning yarns of times long past and recounts endless drunken revelries. The songs are rebellious, poignant and achingly heartfelt with an extra helpings of Scottish charm and wit to boot. The unbridled energy and merriment of Beer & Loathing will immediately have the listener hoisting a pint glass and singing along to the infectious 12 tracks. Whether you're a McKenzie lifer or new to the game, these anthemic songs are sure to get your blood up and your heart pumping.

***Bad Cop Bad Cop has done angry. The band’s 2017 full-length, Warriors, was recorded in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election. The message Bad Cop is sending this time around on their third full-length album The Ride is less about wagging your finger at others, or giving the middle one to the Man, than it is about self-love and acceptance. That positivity fuels many of The Ride’s tracks. “Originators,” “Simple Girl,” “Community,” “I Choose,” “Perpetual Motion Machine,” and “The Mirage” exude confidence, gratitude, and compassion. This self-love is tasking the listener with putting a fix on the problems at hand and finding it in themselves to create the life that they want.  Singer Stacey Dee speaks from experience. In 2018 she was hospitalized twice for different ailments, then discovered she had stage one breast cancer at the end of the year. Fortunately it was highly treatable, but the experience was life-altering. Dee captures it with brutal frankness on “Breastless,” whose bright melodies belie the struggle described in the lyrics. “Certain Kind of Monster” and “Pursuit of Liberty”—both written and sung by bassist Linh Le—are blistering repudiations of the current administration’s treatment of immigrants. The former is an imagined conversation with an ICE agent, and the latter juxtaposes her family’s immigration to the U.S. from Vietnam in 1975 to current events- something she’s never explored musically. The perspective behind The Ride lends it an undeniable maturity, without losing its power. Recorded throughout much of 2018 and 2019 by Johnny...

***Of all the words used to describe Western Addiction, ‘positive’ feels the least fitting. After all, the San Francisco quintet plays decidedly aggressive West Coast hardcore topped by the scratchy yowl of vocalist Jason Hall. But ‘positive’ appropriately describes the content of the group’s third full-length. Yes, it’s called Frail Bray, and yes, song titles include “Utter Despair” and “Deranged by Grief.” But the actual theme of the album more-so resembles hope and rejuvenation. Make no mistake: Western Addiction hasn’t gone sunshine and rainbows. Frail Bray remains as aggressive as its predecessors. Guitarists Ken Yamazaki and Tony Teixeira sound huger than ever, with Mitch Paglia’s knotty bass lines in lock step with Chad Williams’ intricate beats. And Hall opens the album with an attack on destructive capitalism called “The Leopard and the Juniper.” But listen closely, and hope sneaks in. It’s in the two-part celebration of motherhood, “Rose’s Hammer I” and “Rose’s Hammer II.” It’s in “Laurette” and the perpetual rejuvenation of “Wildflowers of Italy.” It shines brightly in “We Lived in Ultraviolet” – a straight-up love song. The point of view isn’t the only thing that’s different on Frail Bray. Since forming in 2002, Western Addiction has defied easy categorization, and Frail Bray finds the band slipping further beyond the confines of hardcore with nods to classic rock ’n’ roll, and album closer “Deranged by Grief” recalls Suicidal Tendencies by way of Simon and Garfunkel, one of Hall’s favorite groups.
