King Punch is an awesome 7-piece ska-punk powerhouse based out of London, England. They've been around almost 4 years and have already released 2 great EPs - both which are free to download - but I didn't stumble upon them until a few minutes ago. If you like high-energy ska-punk with a full horn section, I highly recommend heading over to Bandcamp and checking out this band's tunes!

Venice, California crossover thrash/hardcore punk legends Suicidal Tendencies announced on their Facebook page last night that their bassist Tim “Rawbiz” Williams, who has been part of the band for nearly four years, died. The band wrote:
“It’s with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of bassist Tim “Rawbiz” Williams. Tim played bass for Suicidal Tendencies for almost four years until recently. Tim was a monster on bass, running around on stage in the pit, giving his all, even when his body wasn’t at its best. We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally.”Add to My Radar

L.A. punks French Exit are streaming and giving away for free a previously unreleased song entitled “It’s Not, I’m Not”. You can stream it below and grab it for free on the band’s Bandcamp. Here’s what guitarist/vocalist Tim Stasica had to say about the track:
“We wrote this song right after we finished our LP. We recorded it along with our covers EP in our drummer’s garage, and it was supposed to be on a 4-way split that still hasn’t materialized. Since we’ve been playing it live occasionally for a few months, we wanted to just get it out there to kind of clear the slate for more new stuff!”
French Exit last released an album entitled Guts and Black Stuff through It’s Alive Records, back in December 2013.Add to My Radar
Don Giovanni Records challenges Recess and Asian Man Records to disassociate with Screeching Weasel and The Queers
The internet has recently been going crazy with this whole Ice Bucket Challenge, however today, Don Giovanni Records owner Joe Steinhardt has just made a different challenge – this time aimed at Asian Man Records owner Mike Park and Recess Records owner Todd Congelliere.
The challenge is such – stand up to, and disassociate with “sexist, racist, and homophobic punk bands like The Queers and Screeching Weasel.” And it was most likely triggered by Joe Queer making a Facebook post in support of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed Michael Brown Jr, and Ben Weasel backing Joe up when people began accusing him of being a racist.
Read some of the replies Joe Queer made on his initial Facebook post that started all of this – along with Joe Steinhardt’s statement/challenge – below, and let the comments begin.
Paper + Plastick Records offer free download of new compilation ft. Red City Radio, Junior Battles, Ex Friends & more
