According to a recent post on their Facebook page, The Flatliners have been forced to drop off their east coast tour with Single Mothers and Solids, as they have been denied entrance to the United States. You can read the band’s statement on the ordeal below.

The Flatliners’ latest full-length album Dead Language was released in September of 2013 through Fat Wreck Chords. Frontman Chris Cresswell has since released a solo record through Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape’s One Week Records.

Swingin’ Utters stream new song “I’m Not Coming Home”

Posted by Screeching Bottlerocket on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 1:42 PM (PST)

San Francisco punk veterans Swingin’ Utters are streaming a new song titled “I’m Not Coming Home,” and you can give it a listen below. Guitarist Darius Koski had this to say about the track:

“The inspiration for this song comes from the Ramones, who I ripped off, entirely and probably pretty obviously. I basically wrote ‘Carbona not glue’, realized what I did, and just figured I might as well write a Ramones style song, just not completely rip them off like I did originally. I think it fits on the record just like everything we do somehow fits on each of our records, and that it’s of a different style than some of the other songs… Kind of, oh, I don’t know, like the Ramones?”

Swingin’ Utters’ new album Fistful of Hollow is set to be released on November 11th through Fat Wreck Chords. The band will also be embarking on a North American tour with Lagwagon and This Legend (ft. former Yellowcard members Longineu Parsons and Ben Harper) early next month.

Dead To Me reunite with Jack Dalrymple (Swingin Utters), plan new full-length

Posted by jaystone on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 4:22 PM (PST)

Well here’s something I didn’t expect to write today…

According to a series of posts on their official Twitter feed, San Francisco’s Dead To Me have apparently reunited with original member Jack Dalrymple (also of Swingin Utters and One Man Army fame). They’ll move forward as a five-piece, with Dalrymple sharing vocal and guitar-playing duties, and will record a brand new album, evidently named American Son of Cholo early next year. As you may recall, Dalrymple left Dead To Me after 2008′s “Little Brother” EP. Stay tuned for info, kids!

Dead To Me’s album “Moscow Penny Ante” was released in October 2011 via Fat Wreck Chords. The Utters, of course, have a new album entitled “Fistful Of Hollow” due out November 11th on Fat Wreck.

Once upon a time not long ago, the future seemed very much unclear for Lagwagon. The seminal California punk band played occasional tours and festival shows, but the members each had what seemed to be increasingly-mounting outside obligations (perhaps most notably frontman Joey Cape also had his own increasingly busy solo career, he and drummer Dave Raun staying active in Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, former bassist Jesse Buglione leaving the band and being replaced by Joe Raposo, and Chris Rest joining No Use For A Name). Though they never officially went away, there were no plans to record any new material after the band’s 2005 ode to late-drummer Derrick Plourde, Resolve.

But a funny thing happened on what seemed to be the road to Hiatus-ville (or at least ‘Extended Break-town’). The band embarked on a lengthy tour in support of their 2011 Putting Music In Its Place boxed set. Somewhere on that run, the creative juices got flowing again. According to Cape, “something happened during that period of time where I felt like we kinda got re-fired up. A lot of synergy and chemistry came back into the band through that process.” Over the ensuing several years, Cape would begin writing new music specifically for Lagwagon. In spite of nearing the quarter-century mark fronting the band (and his own half-century mark on this planet), the music that Cape found himself writing was arguably the most aggressive, heavy music of his career. “It seems to me like it’s heavier than anything we’ve ever done!” He continues: “I think it’s a matter of where the band is now. We always try to make records that are appropriate to the collective personality the band has at the time. We all grew up on different kinds of music, metal and punk and rock and really heavy stuff. I think that most of the guys in my band prefer the really heavy stuff.”

But it wasn’t just angry music Cape was composing; the lyrics he found himself writing were also amongst the angriest of his career. “But the basic, central theme of the record is just my view of the world that I live in now, that I’m raising my daughter in. This is just a series of rants that (you’d hear) if you were my pal and hung out at the pub with me on a Wednesday night.” Fatherhood may have softened Cape in some ways, but it’s also made him more frustrated in the world around him. “I think it’s a bit cheesy to say that ‘we’ve got to hold on to hope,’ you know, because I honestly don’t have a lot of hope. That said, I’m dealing with what I’m dealing with, so how do I make the best of it.”

The result of Cape’s frustration and, perhaps, lack of hope is Hang. Due out October 28th on their longtime label home of Fat Wreck Chords, Hang is a dozen of the heaviest, most earnest songs that Lagwagon have recorded to wax. While much of the material is no doubt focused on society’s woes, there’s also an ode to the band’s longtime friend and touring partner Tony Sly, whose 2012 death rang loudly throughout all corners of the scene. While you might expect “One More Song” to be a mournful, acoustic number, in reality, it’s anything but. “I had no intention of writing a song for Tony like this because I just didn’t feel in this case that words or melodies or anything would really suffice. I didn’t feel like anything would be deep enough or good enough to represent anything that I wanted to say or feel. And I didn’t for a long time, but that song just kinda came out of the blue one day. I just couldn’t deny it, I had to do it.”

Head below to read our full, in-depth conversation with Cape. It’s a long one, we’ll admit, but it finds the always good-natured Caper in an honest, thoughtful and increasingly candid mood. Be sure to check out Lagwagon on the road with Swingin’ Utters and This Legend later this fall; full tour details here. Who knows…maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch Hang start to finish!

While at Riot Fest in Denver last month, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes‘ frontman Spike Slawson recently caught up with the folks at New Noise Magazine (or maybe vice versa) for an expectedly entertaining video interview. As expected, they talk about the Gimmes’ latest album, “Are We Not Men? We Are DIVA!” as well as Slawson’s own Uke-Hunt project (which put out one of the more underrated albums of the year in my opinion). Check out the interview below.

“Are We Not Men? We Are DIVA!” was released on May 13th, while the Uke-Hunt full length was released June 10th. Both appear on Fat Wreck Chords.
