All Out War EP Coming This Summer

I'll be awaiting my copy

New York hardcore legends All Out War will release a new EP this summer called Dying Gods. That would have been a killer band name. The new EP sees the band return to the sound of For Those Who Were Crucified, and just like that timelessly brutal album, Dying Gods was engineered and produced by […]

Black N’ Blue Bowl Bolsters Lineup

Sick Of It All

The lineup for the Black N’ Blue Bowl continues to expand like my waistline. The 2015 installment, set for Webster Hall in New York May 16 and May 17, already had some big names to get asses through the door. But the latest additions include native New Yorkers Sick Of It All, which will certainly […]

Oneonta Punk Festival Announced


I am not sure how many bands on the bill are actual punk groups, but so far, the bill for Oneonta Punk 2014 is shaping up to be pretty phat. I went to SUNY Oneonta for college, so I have a special affinity for that town. I learned about the benefit from reading Lambgoat. Proceeds […]

Expire Release New Song


I don’t know much about this Expire band, but during my weekend in Worcester attending the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, I saw many of their shirts on kids with questionable morals.

Stick To Your Guns, Terror Tour Announced


You dirty cocker spaniel — I’ll learn you a thing or two. For now, here’s some news on Stick To Your Guns. They’ll be hitting the road with Terror, Hundredth, Counterparts and Expire, under the “Fuck The Message Tour” banner. Fuck the message? I guess I’d feel that way about the message, especially since the […]

Go if you can

The organizers behind the Southeast Beast Fest reached out to us, asking that we update you all on the full lineup, which was just announced. Set for Jacksonville, Florida, the fest will go down April 5 and Aprul 6 at Brewsters Megaplex. I hope that’s not a movie theater. The event will be held over […]

Terror, Ringworm Booked For 2014 Southeast Beast Fest


That’s right, you armadillo-lovin’ lexicon abuser! A bunch of bands have signed on for something called the 2014 Southeast Beast Festival. That’s a fairly decent name for a fest. The event is set for April 5 and April 6 at Brewsters Roc Bar in Jacksonville, Florida. The final lineup will be announced come December 10. […]

Madball, Code Orange Kids Plot Pithy Tour


That’s right — pithy. As in “forceful and brief,” as the word’s defined by some outlets. Madball will hook up with Expire and Code Orange Kids next month for a string of East Coast gigs. A list of those follows at the end of this post, for those interested parties. Alas, the tour’s only five […]
