Sacramento, California act The Croissants have just streamed a preview of their brand new EP, which is a split with fellow Sacremento act Charles Albright. The EP is set for release on April 22nd, and from the tracks made available so far, it’s shaping up to be a mix of six, angry and rythmic pieces that positively pop with creative energy. Check it out below.
The split can be pre-ordered on the group’s Bandcamp page for $6, and marks the band’s first release since their single “We’re In The Basement” back in February, 2014.

The past couple of weeks has been quite busy on the concert front, as bands are coming off the holidays rested and ready to hit the road. While I was unable to attend the first string of shows featuring Rancid, I made it up two weeks later with a little TSOL action. The band was headlining at the favorite local punk dive bar, Thee Parkside, and had Left Alone and The Croissants as crowd warm-up duty.
The Croissants is garage punk at its finest. The Sacramento-based trio plays a distorted, simple, melodic style of punk mixed with 90’s garage/indie, with a classic NorCal sound. The band is riding the heels of their latest 7-inch “We’re In The Basement”, and was a great warm-up to what was to come. Tracks like “Things Have Changed” and “Don’t Wanna Live” definitely got feet moving and hearts beating, ready for Left Alone.
I always enjoy seeing Left Alone because they mix several styles into one set. Punk, ska, a little blues and folk – the band spreads its love all over so everyone in attendance is sure to hear something they like. I became a fan of the band a whole decade ago with their release of “Dead American Radio”, and the band has solidified songs from that album as part of their most popular repertoire. Some of my favorites include “Done Wrong”, “City to City”, and of course (my favorite shirt as well) “I Hate Emo”. The band also sampled heavily off their latest album, “Harbor Area”, which came out last year through Hellcat and the band’s own Smelvis Records.
The air was ripe with sweat and beer, the room a cozy 95 degrees, and the crowd well lubricated as the SoCal legends TSOL took the stage. Quite the small stage for Jack & co. but they made do, at points sharing the space with exuberant fans. A TSOL set has become a little predictable (as the band hasn’t released much of any new material as of late), and you can bet you’ll hear a little “Love Story”, “Wasted”, “Property Is Theft”, and if you’re lucky, the fan favorite “Code Blue”. It’s incredible and a little hilarious that one of the band’s most popular song deals with the taboo subject of necrophilia – but hey, the crowd eats it up (and so do I (who can forget Punk-O-Rama II).
A great night was had – and you can view all the photos from the night’s sets below.
As always, big thanks to all the guys at Thee Parkside for a good time.

In the words of Asian Man head honcho Mike Park , “Nothing fancy here, just straight up no frills punk rock. I’ve always loved split 7 inches, so definitely look for more in the future.”
You can check out the Croissants tracks from the split right here.
Hailing from Lincoln, UK Nieviem is a newer skate punk band that has been tearing it up for a little over a year. Steadily releasing new songs, live recordings, and EPs, the band continues the trend with their second EP The Hope Is There. The EP is fast and heavy, borrowing from hardcore but still strongly entrenched in 90's skate punk. If that sounds up your alley, then give it a listen here.
