February’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp

With the climate of Nationalism rising across the globe these days, it’s always good to step back, take a deep breath and refocus on the big picture. Remembering that although we may live in different areas of the world and have different cultures and beliefs, there are far more things that we have in common. For us specifically, one of those many things, is music! So, it’s with this in mind, that we forge ahead into February’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp. This month, in the spirit of Globalism and celebration of the diversity of cultures, we’ve chosen to feature bands from all corners of the Planet (ed: it’s round, you moron. there are no corners), ’cause, the only border we reckanize is the tropopause! Check ’em out, below!

You can pre-order it here.

The expanded collection of songs features the original four tracks on their ‘A Lifetime Apart’ EP together with specially selected material from their other earlier releases including ‘The Great Thieves Escape’, ‘Gasping for Air’ and their debut EP ‘Hours’.

Commenting on the reissue of ‘A Lifetime Apart’, Mark Boniface (guitar/vocals) said:

“As we are beginning work on our first full-length, we felt like an EP which compiles our early material would be a great opportunity to introduce people to our band who might not know about or roots. We’re delighted to be able to work together with Fixing A Hole to release this compilation and we want to dedicate it to everyone who has helped us in the past two years”.

The EP features a recolouring of the original artwork and has appearances from Nate Davenport (Bad Ideas), Luke Ellis (Muncie Girls) & Kelly Kemp (The Hippaes).

To celebrate the news, Harker have shared a music video for ‘Somewhere Better’, one of the bands first ever songs, re-recorded specially for the EP.

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.

 



Introducing Punk Act: Blizzcreeps (full album stream)

Austria’s Blizzcreeps might not be the best decision makers (they spent a year and a half deciding on cover art for this album) but they sure know how to record great music. Punk rock with doses of straight up rock ‘n roll influence, they sorta remind me of Green Day if Green Day went a little more lo-fi and leaned a little more on the heavier side of rock. I’ll probably change my mind on that description by the time I get through the next song so do us both a favor and just stream their debut release “One” below and make your own call.
