This is purely amicable and we wish Steve all the best in his future endeavours. Please join us for our first show in many months, and the most important one in a long time.

As a part of Bandcamp’s new label account initiative, longtime punk mainstays Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records have joined the digital streaming and distribution website. While Epitaph’s Bandcamp page has only a few releases up so far (notably the newest albums from The Menzingers, Joyce Manor, Plague Vendor, Pianos Become the Teeth and The Sidekicks), the Fat Wreck Bandcamp page contains many of their high profile releases and bands.
From all of the Lagwagon and Strung Out reissues, to nearly the entire discographies of bands such as Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, The Loved Ones, The Lawrence Arms, Dead To Me, None More Black, and Smoke Or Fire, to bands that have released only one or two albums with the label like the Descendents and The Epoxies, to Fat’s newest albums from the likes of Masked Intruder, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, and CJ Ramone, there’s a whole lot to go through. Of course, NOFX‘s Fat Wreck output is also available.Add to My Radar
Hi I’m Mitch. Musically 2014 was a brilliant year for punk rock with a lot of really good releases, making my task of assembling a top 10 way trickier than it was last year. I started the process with a top 30 list and have painfully had to reduce it down to something resembling a top 10. I was also quite strict on who I covered so left out bands like Taking Back Sunday and Weezer who have both released their best albums in a good while.
So after a lot of immense deliberation, eternally switching list positions, tantrums, self doubt and loathing while listening to a hell of a lot of great music released this year, here is my top 10-ish. R.I.P. Tommy Ramone.Add to My Radar
The Resurrection Fest Facebook page announced today that Swedish punk rock veterans Satanic Surfers are slated for an epic return and reunion next year. The band has been scheduled for one reunion show so far (hinting more to come) at the Spanish music festival in July 2015. We’ll keep you posted on more details as they come to light.
Satanic Surfers released Taste the Poison in 2005 via Bad Taste Records before disbanding in 2007.Add to My Radar
In a recent interview, The Misfits founder Jerry Only said that he would consider doing a reunion of the original lineup on condition that Glenn Danzig left all “that dark, that real black stuff at home” and focused on being a “positive influence” to Misfits’ fans. He states:
“The thing is, I have an obligation to our fans. A lot of our fans are young and the thing is, we’re a very positive organization. We may have a lot of scary shit, but we’re working out, we take care of mom, we’ve got jobs. It’s no bullshit. We work for what we’re doing. If we bring Glenn back in and he’s going to bring that dark, that real black stuff to the table, I don’t want that.
All the money in the world ain’t gonna make me sell out my fans. What I feel is that, I’d rather be where I am and be happy and be a positive influence than to be the richest man in the world and miserable and be a scumbag to the kids that follow us. I’m not doing that. I told Doyle that. I told him, ‘Hey look, if Glenn wants to come be a team player and leave that shit at home, we’re good.’ That’s the name of the game.”
Glenn Danzig was the original singer of the Misfits, and remained with the band until their original breakup in 1983. The Misfits have since reunited without him, and are currently planning a follow-up to their 2011 album The Devil’s Rain.Add to My Radar
