Vancouver skate-punk act Ellesmere have launched a new sale in their merch store to help pay for their upcoming studio time.  To help motivate you they’re offering to give away a previously unreleased song with larger purchases.  Here’s what they had to say:

“We live! And we are immensely excited to be heading into the studio this May to finally record some new tunes! In the mean time how would you like to get your ears on an unreleased b-side from the Bail City EP? We just updated our online store with all the merch we have left. If you spend $25 or more we will email you the un-released (and most likely never-to-be released) b-side from Bail City (WARNING: don’t let the kiddies listen). The more money we make the more studio time we can get to make this next release the best it can be!”

The band plans to head into the studio May 8th to record the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2013 debut EP “Bail City” which came out through our very own Dying Scene Records.  You can/should stream it here.

Ellesmere (skate punk) recording new “faster and harder” EP

Posted by Johnny X on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 2:00 PM (PST)

Good news skate punk fans!  Vancouver’s Ellesmere have announced that they’ll be heading into the studio on May 8th to record 4 new tracks for an upcoming EP.  As for what fans can expect from the new material here’s a couple interesting tidbits from the band:

“We’ll be keeping our flow for the next album so it ties in with the last EP, but stepping up our game a bit in all respects,” says drummer Jordan.  Singer Kurt Anderson adds, “The new tunes will be overall faster and harder but still melodic and catchy.  One song can actually get played right after ‘Man Horse’ as a continuation of the last riff.”

Sounds aces to me!

For those of you somehow not in the know, Ellesmere released their debut EP “Bail City” in December 2013 through Dying Scene Records.  It was very well received by any punk who considered themselves a fan of “Punk In Drublic” and if that piques your interest you can stream it here.

After 11 years together, Belgian skate punks Face The Fax have announced they will be throwing in the towel, and to bring things to a close, they’ve released one final song. Check out the music video below, and head over here to download it for free.

Here’s what the band had to say about their decision to call it a day:

“So, here it is: a brand new song and the clip that goes with it!

This one comes an additional message, though: This song and video will be the very last thing we’ll launch at your senses. What? You’ve read that right: after 11 years of trashing about, FTF is done.

Why? Who knows? Our aging bones might’ve gotten too slow for the fast lane. Our egos might not be able to cope with the growing lack of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. One of our managers might have informed each other that one of us.is.out. Or all of us might just be ready to move on and try something else. Most, if not all of us, are already working on new noise in other bands, so you definitely won’t have to miss any of our post-show fragrances.

Of course, after a decade, we can safely say that this band has been a huge part of our lives. We’ll be eternally grateful for the places we’ve been and the people we’ve met on the way. Here’s to everyone that danced along and sang to our tunes, released our EP’s and albums, recorded our songs, put on stages, let us freeload on their booze and went on the road with us.

See you around, Faxateers. FTF out.”

Face To Fax’s final full-length album Basic Human Wrongs was released in 2013 through Funtime Records. That album, along with the rest of the band’s discography can be heard on their Bandcamp page.
