Full line-up annouced for 2017 Montebello Rockfest (Iggy Pop, The Offspring, Bad Religion, Pennywise, etc.)

Montebello Rockfest (Formerly Amnesia Rockfest) has finally announced the full lineup for the annual festival’s 2017’s installment and, as usual, it’s pretty awesome. The festival takes place in Montebello, Quebec, from June 22rd-25th. The first two groups to be announced were Rammstein and The Offspring and then it became a waiting game, but it seems the wait was well worth it.

The 2017 lineup includes, but is not limited to: Iggy Pop, Bad Religion, Pennywise, The Specials, Goldfinger, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Anti-Flag, Reverend Horton Heat, Agent Orange, Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, Frenzal Rhomb, Face to Face and The Unseen.

Also special tribute bands have been assembled to honor Fugazi, Minor Threat, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Spinal Tap and Twisted Sister. Speaking of Twisted Sister we were very surprised to see Dee Snider’s name on the bill after last year’s fiasco when Snider and his band expressed deep displeasure with the festival; guess it wasn’t that bad after all. Other tributes will be held for a few of the best record labels of all time: Fat Wreck Chords, Hellcat Records, Epitaph and Sub Pop.

Wu-Tang Clan is also on the list this year and although they are not punk or metal this addition seems to make perfect sense. If you have never experienced Canada’s largest rock festival check out some of our coverage from last year HERE.

 



Punk Rock Holiday, 2017 releases full lineup

Europe’s most idyllic punk rock gathering has released its full lineup and oh boy is it a cracker. Prominent acts making the trip to the picturesque alpine valleys of Tolmin include The Offspring, Propagandhi, Face to Face, Anti-Flag, and Less Than Jake. Of course, as well as these legendary ‘house hold name’ bands, there will also be a whole host of lesser known groups gracing the frankly beautiful Beach Stage. Acts here include the likes of Actionmen, Sombulance, and 69 Enfermos.

Unfortunately, the event sold out in record time this year so tickets are not currently available from the festival themselves but many of the Beach Stage have been issued passes for sale. The best way to go about getting one if you’re determined to be there is to add as many of the bands as possible and hound them for a ticket.

Punk Rock Holiday is held in Tolmin, Slovenia and runs every year in August. If you’d like to admire the stunning line up they’ve managed to put together, take a look at the poster above, or visit their website.

Anti-Flag talks about the possibility of a 2017 album release

Fans of Anti-Flag may have something to get excited about in 2017.  Although there’s no official word yet, Anti-Flag’s recent interview with Billboard magazine hints at a new, “angry” record that could come out sometime this year.

Guitarist/vocalist Justin Sane had this to say:  “Ultimately I just want to make the best record we can,” he says. “I think that for as much as the politics about all this are going to matter, writing the best songs we can and playing music is something that helps me keep my sanity — even when we’re doing songs that are political in nature and about difficult problems. So we want the music to be good, not just angry.” He’s hoping for a fall release, but Sane also doesn’t want to rush into topical commentary without giving issues some time to develop.”

Anti-Flag’s last studio album was 2015’s Cease Fires.

Anti-Flag announce limited edition “Live Vol. 1” LP, featuring bits of burnt American flag

Well here’s a story that’s sure to not piss anybody off…

Pittsburgh punk veterans Anti-Flag have announced plans for a very — and we mean VERY — limited edition vinyl pressing of their upcoming “Live Vol. 1” LP. They’ve teamed up with Wax Mage Records for a special red, white and blue pressing that has bits of burnt American flag pressed into the vinyl itself. Only ten of these albums exist, and they’re being auctioned off periodically to benefit charities that the band and label see fit. Here’s what A-F had to say:

In times of bigotry and injustice, the artist community has always stood on the side of marginalized people. With the election of Donald Trump bigotry and injustice now stand center stage. When Donald Trump, his inevitable cabinet of political and corporate Washington insiders, and the rest of the Alt-Right burn the constitution, we burn the American Flag.

While symbols and fabric feel no pain, people do.

The forth coming administration will hurt the poor and their inclusion of the Alt-Right will hurt the LGBTQ community.

100% of the proceeds from this auction will go to a LGBTQ advocacy center in Pittsburgh, PA and a homeless advocacy center in Northeast Ohio.

“No One Is Free When Others Are Oppressed.”
Check out the first two auction items right here, and stay tuned for more information.
