Music Video: Mercy Ties (hardcore) – “Analysis of a Smile”

Seattle hardcore maniacs Mercy Ties are getting ready to release their fury on the world in the form of their upcoming debut album Proper Corruption.  The band mixes elements of d-beat, crust, grindcore, sludge, and mathrock (you know, all those heavy genres punk kids tend to like), into the 20 minutes the album runs.

Proper Corruption is set to be released on November 20th via Glory Kid Records, but to give you a taste of what to expect, the band has released a video for their song “Analysis of a Smile,” which you can check out below.

The Lawrence Arms announce first annual “War On Christmas”

The Lawrence Arms have announced they will be playing three shows in Chicago this December, with each night focusing on different themes like despair, revelry, friendship and more.

Additionally, the band will be joined each night by different bands including Off With Their Heads, Red City Radio, The Methadones, and more.  Personally, I think the bands picked for each night perfectly fit the theme of the night.

You can check out all the details below.

Sumerian Records releases two music videos filmed in the remains of CBGB for some reason

Two new music videos just came in from Sumerian Records, one for “Draemings” from Dying Mountain, and the other from “I See Stars” by Youth; each one depicts the band playing on the ruined stage of the legendary CBGB. Now, if you’re wondering why you’ve probably never heard of either of these groups before, that’s because they’re definitively not punk! Don’t get me wrong, “Draemings” is actually a pretty cool electro-pop tune (the less I say about “I See Stars” the better). But something tells me that if these folks tried to get on the stage back in the day, things would have gotten ugly.

Now, the mythic status of CBGB and the bands it brought to light almost goes without saying. And, who knows, maybe these guys really did look up to those days. But this strikes me as something really insincere, like just using the CBGB name and slapping it onto your music video to get some attention. Still maybe I’m over-reacting. At any rate, you can check out the videos below.

The Wonder Years and Motion City Soundtrack announce limited 7″ tour split

Philidelphia pop-punks The Wonder Years have just announced a new 7″ split with Motion City Soundtrack, to commemorate their upcoming joint tour. For the two split, the two bands essentially traded track titles off their then-upcoming albums (“No Closer To Heaven” and “Panic Stations”, respectively) and gave each-other the tasks of writing new lyrics and melodies to match up. The only problem, is that a limited number of these splits will be pressed, and they’ll be given out on a first come first serve basis to people who purchased the VIP tour passes. Still, if that still sounds interesting, and you were already planning on checking them out anyway, you can check out the tour dates below.
