Go Die is for punk fans looking for something a little different. Consisting of only two members the band still manages to churn out pretty dynamic sounding tunes through insightful lyrics and electronic effects. They sorta remind me of a slightly more lo-fi version of Intro5pect meets early era Dwarves. Anyway, the duo released an album called "Nail House Rock" somewhat recently and you can stream and/or download it for free on their bandcamp. Check 'em out!

Earlier this month, The Offspring frontman Dexter Holland said that he wasn’t sure if the band’s next musical output will come in the form of a full-length studio album. In a recent interview, Dexter said that he is still open to recording an album, and the band is planning to self-release a single this fall. He explains:
“Not that I wouldn’t want to do an album again, because I think they’re important. But for now, I think it’s better to put out singles here and there. Just to keep the fire stoked.”
In other news, gutiarist Noodles revealed that The Offspring are not in full album mode, but have completed 3 or 4 songs for a possible new EP. About the possibility of new music, Noodles told Yahoo!, “We’re old-school, so when we think of recording, we think of doing a whole record. But the world is changing. Why make fans wait two years when some of the songs are going to be done in a month? Maybe it’s a better idea to put those songs out and then slowly compile another album.”
Earlier this month, The Offspring released the covers EP Summer Nationals exclusively on iTunes and Spotify via Time Bomb, which was released to coincide with the Summer Nationals tour with Bad Religion, Pennywise, The Vandals and Stiff Little Fingers. Noodles recently stated that the band expects to begin work on new music after the tour.Add The Offspring to My Radar

Last weekend I took a road trip with a couple friends to a tiny town called East Durham NY about 2 hours north of New York City close to Albany for the 5th annual Rat’s Nest Run-In car show knowing that one of my favorite bands American Pinup was playing, and thinking an old time car show would be a nice outing. As it happened it was an all-out amazingly good time that exceeded all of my expectations.
The Rats Nest Run-In which I thought was a strange name pertains to “Rat Rods” which if you don’t know (I didn’t) is an old rusted Frankenstein of a car or truck that is most often created by its owner and many times out of junk…They are amazing, the creativity of these guys who are both young and old really blew my mind, and was something to see. And next to the cars comes the party, put 2,000 or so Hot Rodder/Psychobilly types together with an amazing line up of music and cheap beer for three day’s and you are in for a good time…The Trophy’s were pinstriped bottles of Moonshine!
The Show featured about 20 or so bands who started around noon playing outdoors until about 7 or 8 pm along with a Burlesque show and pinup girl contest followed by a full fireworks show at nine. The music and more Burlesque then continued in the indoor lounge which held approximately 450-500 people and rocked until about four in the morning, so I’m told ( I didn’t make it until the end) and it featured a really great mix of old style Rockabilly by bands like Whiskey Kill as well as more modern Psychobilly by The Creepin’ Cadavers a Killer alt-country band called Slaughter House Chorus, as well as a really great punk set by Bourbon Scum, not to mention a couple of awesome sets by American Pinup which was of course my reason for driving 2 hours north to begin with. Another band who has become my new favorite band since this last weekend was New Hampshire’s Dressed For The Occasion who have a great heartfelt punk and roll kinda country sound that really doesn’t choose a genre. Remember that name…Dressed For The Occasion, If my spidey senses tell me anything it’s that they may be the next Gaslight Anthem on the horizon.
After the show I was able to get ahold of organizer Travis Myers. That’s right the same Travis Myers from Altercation Records who is responsible for Upstart Fest, The Altercation Punk Rock BBQ and The Altercation Punk Comedy Tour who simply said in his rough Bronx accent “ Hey if you like really cool cars, and you like really great music you came to the right place kid” And that pretty much sums up the weekend, hundreds of really cool and interesting cars coupled with a really great line up of bands will make for an incredible time, and I look forward to attending next year’s Rats nest Run-In which I am told will be held again at The Blackthorne Resort in the tiny town of East Durham NY around the same time next August.

Houston’s alt-country/punk act The Grizzly Band have just released a new music video for their track “Pass the Smoke” off their second full-length Lost and Found, which was released earlier this month via Altercation Records. You can check out the video below.
If you are not already familiar the band, they deliver solid punk and rock n’ roll tunes that lean heavily toward country without ever leaving their punk roots far behind. The 5-piece has recently been picked up by Altercation.Add The Grizzly Band to My Radar
The song will appear on the soundtrack of the upcoming documentary A Fat Wreck. The band’s currently touring Europe in support of their sophomore album Mandrake, which was released in February through Paper + Plastick and Solidarity Recordings.Add The Shell Corporation to My Radar
