None or Unknown
My latest discovery comes from the Land Down Under and goes by the name of What's Left Is Yours. The 3-piece punk outfit is currently streaming their debut self-titled EP and offering it as a pay what you want download. They're playing a catchy-sing-along-Hardcoreish Pop-Punk. Confused? Let me explain: Being the sucker that I am, I got hooked at the 0:25 mark of the highly addictive opening song "Punk Rock Party". But when I started listening to "Insanity", the song that followed, I was like "Fuck, am I listening to the same band?!" A completely different sound from the first tune, a much more heavy and less poppy approach that somehow reminded me of Only Crime, and it didn't stop there...I've been brought back to Blink-182's "Dude Ranch" era as soon as the 3rd song "Mexico" kicked in... Anyway, I'll stop there and let you guys judge it for yourself. If you like diversity and you feel like being all mixed up in a good way, give a listen to the Aussies in What's Left Is Yours here. Favorite track: "Insanity"

Lagwagon/Bad Astronaut/Scorpios/Bad Astronaut/Bad Loud/Me First And The Gimme Gimmes‘ own Joey Cape will be the latest and greatest member of the punk scene to hop on the Reddit ask-me-anything train. It’s going down tomorrow (Thursday, June 12) at 10AM Pacific (1PM Eastern) at Reddit’s AMA.
For those who are unfamiliar with Reddit, an ask-me-anything is where a user (usually someone famous) prompts for others to ask questions about any topic. We’re told that Caper will answer questions about literally anything…Lagwagon’s new album, One Week Records details, if the rest of the Gimmes view Spike Slawson’s Uke Hunt like No Doubt viewed their diva branching out on her own…literally anything.
Lagwagon are reportedly nearing completion of their first full-length studio album since 2005′s Resolve, released on Fat Wreck Chords.

As you all know very well, Joey Cape and the rest of the California punk veterans in Lagwagon have been teasing plans to release a new full-length album in 2014 for quite some time now. Up until now, however, it’s been nothing more than talk.
But, according to some recent activity on drummer Dave Raun’s Instagram profile, the band is actually at The Blasting Room right now and they’re working on their first full-length in 9 years with Bill Stevenson!!
Bill has always cranked out albums fast as hell in the past so I’m gonna assume we’ll actually be getting a new full-length from Lagwagon (along with a cool documentary) by the tentative October release date the Caper’s been throwing around recently.Add to My Radar

Lagwagon‘s Joey Cape was recently interviewed by New Noise Magazine, where he talked about the band’s new album and stated that they are set to begin recording it in May or June for a possible October release. He states:
“I don’t know what the release date is, I think they’re talking about October or something, but I think, I get a little freaked out when people start talking about release dates before I finish writing a record. You know what I mean? We’re set to record at the end of May, June, somewhere around then. I can’t even look at those dates because I get all, ‘oh shit, I haven’t written all the songs.’ But I’m writing now and I’’m sure most people hear that and go, ‘what, you have months.’ But months are like days, they just go whoosh, they’re gone.”

Tony Sly’s songs are powerful and moving to begin with and I identify with them. There were so many great songs to choose from. I know a lot of them from touring and accompanying him. I guess “International You Day” was a no brainer though. It’s arguably one of his greatest musical accomplishments. I almost lost it to Frank Turner. But I saw the way people responded to it at the gigs I played with Tony. It never failed to be the best song of the set. I just love that song. I knew I had to fight for it.
“The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute,” featuring covers of songs by No Use for a Name and Mr. Sly (who died a year ago) from NOFX, Bad Religion, Strung Out, Rise Against, Pennywise, The Gaslight Anthem and many others, was released on October 29th through Fat Wreck Chords.Add to My Radar
