None or Unknown
Normally when a band emails DS asking us to check out their debut album recorded at their friend's "home studio" I prepare myself for an obligatory 30 second listen of a horribly produced screech fest before I move on to the next email. Let me tell you, in the case of Athens' Fold The Nuts I'm extremely glad I make a point of listening to every single band that emails us, even those with names as bad as "Fold The Nuts". What I discovered was a 6 song gem of a skate punk release. Fantastic guitar solos, great speed, melodic vocals with just enough angst and clearly this friend with a home studio knows what he's doing behind the knobs. Do yourself a favor and check out the band's self-titled debut below. You can thank me later. --------------------------------------

Well, this is probably the most awesome story we’re gonna post all week! California skate punk super-group Implants just got a little more super, announcing that Matt Riddle (who you may know as the original bassist for Face To Face, or from his time with No Use For A Name, or Pulley) is their new bassist! He will make his debut as a member of Implants on March 21st at Brick By Brick in San Diego.
Riddle will be filling the shoes of former bassist Chris Del Rio, who recently parted ways with Implants on amicable terms and has since formed a new group called Fairvale. Matt will likely not be appearing on the band’s upcoming EP, however, as it was announced Strung Out’s Chris Aiken was tracking bass for the record in late January.Add to My Radar

Australian Skate Punk’s The Decline have announced that they will be entering Fremantle’s Electric City Studios this week, to begin tracking their long awaited third album with Adam Round and Sam Allen, who worked on the band’s previous releases; 2011′s “Are You Gonna Eat That” and 2014′s “Can I Borrow a Feeling”.
After the recent departure of Dan Cribb and Nathan Cooper, The Decline are pleased to welcome two new members into the mix: Ben Elliott on guitar and vocals, and Ray Chiu on bass. Elliott plays in Pat Decline’s ska band House Arrest, and also filled in on touring duties for The Decline in 2014, while Chiu is the bands long term roadie.
Pat Decline had this to say: “We are absolutely stoked to be moving forward in The Decline with Ben and Ray, we have a bunch of new songs and we really can’t wait to get this album out there!”
To celebrate this announcement, The Decline are releasing a series of live videos, filmed at Perth’s Vision Studios. The first in this series features the performance of “Camberwell Street”, a song from the forthcoming album. Old favourites will also be featured in the series, including the bands 2014 single The Evolution of Jesus Jackson
The videos can be found below.
Details of the new album will be released in the coming months, and you can catch The Decline on tour this year throughout Australia, Europe and The UK.Add to My Radar
