Pre-orders announced for Ramallah/Sinners & Saints split 12-inch

Pretty awesome news from the Brothers Lind of the Boston punk community!

For the first time in more than a decade, Blood For Blood/Ramallah/Sinners & Saints founder and songwriter Rob Lind has got new material coming out. His hardcore/metal outfit, Ramallah, will be releasing a split-12″ album with Sinners & Saints, the gutter rock project that he shares time in with his brother Mark (also of Ducky Boys/Warning Shots fame).

The split will be available for pre-order through here at State Line Records starting next Wednesday, April 1st (so let’s hope this isn’t just a big, elaborate hoax). It’ll be available in ten different vinyl colors, and features three new songs from each band. Check out a teaser video below!

We’ve got a couple stories from Boston-area punks The Warning Shots gift-wrapped into one tidy little package for you this Hump Day evening.

First and foremost, the band are streaming two new tracks from their upcoming EP, “Volume 2.” They’re called “Make Your Move” and “Your Lost Faith,” and you can check them out here. Not presently streaming but also featured on the EP is The Warning Shots’ cover of Rancid’s Brad Logan! If you’re so inclined, you can pre-order the digital EP at the same link. “Volume 2″ is due out March 3rd via Warning Shots frontman Mark Lind (Ducky Boys, Sinners & Saints) and his State Line Records label.

Meanwhile, plans are coming together for an upcoming split 7-inch with fellow Boston punks (and Dying Scene Records‘s own) Stray Bullets. According to posts on their respective Facebook pages, both bands have the songs for their forthcoming release written and are slated to hit the studio to record them in the very near future. Stay tuned!

Bryan McPherson and Louise Distras announce German/Austrian tour dates

Good news, Europeans…or at least Germans and Austrians at this point. Bryan McPherson and Louise Distras are teaming up for a few weeks worth of tour dates through your neck of the proverbial woods.

Their tag-team kicks off May 2nd in Ausburg, Germany, and is presently scheduled to wrap up May 19th in Cottbus. More dates are due to be announced soon, so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out the rundown below.

McPherson is due to release a new full-length, “Wedgewood,” in the near future, thanks in part to a successful Kickstarter campaign. Oh, and he’s the “Banned By Disney” guy. Distras, meanwhile, released a limited run EP called  ”Bullets” earlier this week. If there are any left, you can get one here.

Video: The Warning Shots play Green Day’s “Dookie”

Boston punk group The Warning Shots played a show last Saturday, October 25th, in which they covered the classic Green Day album Dookie, and someone in the audience was gracious enough to capture most of the performance so those of us who couldn’t attend could check it out.  Watch the video playlist below.

Bryan McPherson banned from opening for Dropkick Murphys at House Of Blues Anaheim

Bostonian-turned-Californian folk-punk singer-songwriter Bryan McPherson has once again been tabbed (along with Blood Or Whiskey) as an opener for Dropkick Murphys on their upcoming eleven-date tour that runs from California to Oklahoma. Thanks to the long arm of the law that is The Walt Disney Company, McPherson will only be playing ten of the eleven dates. McPherson took to Facebook to explain:

BANNED by Disney!!! Well holy fucking shit people, I just got Banned from playing the Anaheim show (editor’s note: show date is November 5th) by Disney since the venue is in their complex. The reason? My “Anti-political police views and drug insinuation”. Well I’m honored they actually listened to the words. I’m floored. What an honor!!!

We’ve reached out to Disney, LiveNation and the House of Blues in Anaheim for comment (seriously…we have!). As of this writing, it’s been all radio silence, but we’ll keep you posted. Head below for the full tour rundown.

Interview: “Punk Rock 101″ with Jason Messina of the Ducky Boys

“So are we gonna do this fucking interview or what?!” is not the way I’d normally ask a musician to sit for an interview, but The Ducky Boys‘ Jay Messina isn’t the average interviewee; I am lucky enough to also be able to call him a friend. And so we sat down, had a few bloody marys, and started talking about his 18+ years in the Boston music scene. Here’s what happened.
