Album Review: The Copyrights – “No Knocks” EP

Posted by mitchattitude on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at 4:58 PM (PST)

When it was announced earlier on in the year that The Copyrights were to be releasing music on Fat Wreck Chords it seemed like the perfect match. The release signalling a reciprocal tick in the box for both parties: The Copyrights releasing some new material on one of punk’s most revered labels and Fat Wreck releasing music from one of the genre’s brightest and most promising bands.

The Copyrights have been writing and recording their brand of consistently good punk rock for over a decade now and this release on Fat Wreck seems like a natural step on the band’s current upward trajectory. Of course this dalliance on Fat Wreck does not mean The Copyrights have moved labels and will release album number six ‘Report‘ via long time home label Red Scare Industries in August.

There are three new songs on offer here, two of which will find their way onto the new album, leaving one exclusive to this release. The first and title track ‘No Knocks‘ is absolutely as immediate and catchy a song as you’re likely to hear this year. Sung from the perspective of a charmed existence the track gets its hooks in early and holds onto you for its short duration. Second track ‘Keep The Change‘ gets out the blocks with pace and climaxes with some great band vocals. Third track ‘Don’t Want In‘ won’t feature on the new album and that in itself is an indication of the strength in material the band are writing at the moment. It’s a substantial track that builds with an almost post-hardcore style only to refer back to its insatiable chorus.

To put it simply the three new songs on offer here are the epitome of what good pop-punk should be. The Copyrights let their music do the talking with no gimmicks just short blasts of honest, memorable and succinct punk rock. Album number six is looking very promising indeed.

New Music: Victory Boy – “Groundhog Day”

Posted by jaystone on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at 4:03 PM (PST)

Hailing from the mean streets of West Grove, PA (actually, we don’t know that the West Grove streets are very mean…we’re sure they’re lovely this time of year), Victory Boy are a three-piece self-described “thrash pop band.” Their as-yet-unnamed debut EP is slated for release later this summer, but they’re streaming the brand new track “Groundhog Day” in anticipation. It was mastered by the one-and-only Stephen Egerton, so we’re sure you’ll listen to it over and over again. Check it out below.

Victory Boy’s new EP will be released by Koolhaus Records. Stay tuned for more information.

After 13 years as a band, The Prozacs have decided to call it a day, putting out one final release for pop-punk fans to enjoy – a compilation of songs from splits and comps the band appeared on entitled Is This How It Ends?, which you can stream below and purchase on Bandcamp.

Here’s what frontman J Prozac had to say about the band’s decision to throw in the towel:

Hey, Hey punk rockers! So here is the OFFICIAL news. As of July 2014, The Prozacs will be hanging it up. After 13 years of ups & downs, tours & records, friends and enemies, more members than you can shake a stick at…and my consistent musical devotion being poured into The Prozacs…it feels like the right spot to drop a bookmark. The past few years have been incredibly trying in keeping things going…and although I have personally been moving right along, The Prozacs as a whole have had numerous road blocks and challenges causing my musical attention to take several new and different directions. I have finally built the courage to let go of many things I have been holding onto, trying to make work, in order to to put my heart and passion into the new projects, new music, honestly….without pulling back and forth with The Prozacs. It has been very difficult, emotional, stressful…and full of decisions I have not wanted to make, but necessary…in order to do what\’s best for myself, my family and those close to me…in order to continue doing what I love. I have had tremendous support from a wide range of friends, family, band members, fans and labels over the years. I can never thank you all enough! This is not an ending…but a continuation to new adventures! I personally want to thank Matty Prozac, Jimmy Craig, Adam Taylor, Sean Watson and Colin Vicalvi for their multiple years and deep rooted impressions an this band and these songs, as well as every other member that brought in their piece for however long it may have been. I wish Matty Prozac and Paul Basile of the current line up the best of wishes with whatever life brings. There are a couple releases and a music video in the works that will tie up some loose ends, and end cap the bands recorded history! I am very excited, moving forward with The Stiletto’s, The Sonic Diffusers and J Prozac! I’ll be releasing info on each as they grow into their own! 3 chords to the future! Rock -J Prozac

The Prozacs formed in 2001, and have released numerous full-lengths, EPs, and compilation albums since. A portion of the band’s discography is available for streaming on their Bandcamp page.
