San Diego post-hardcore act, Drive Like Jehu, might be reuniting to play Fest 12 as hinted by a teaser image.
Check it out here.
The band released their last album “Yank Crime” in 1994 on Interscope Records.
UPDATE: The Fest has announced via Facebook that this rumor is false:
We are not in any way responsible for the Drive Like Jehu rumor. This is 100% not true. They are not playing Fest. Do not listen to these rumors. All band announcements will be announced on our Facebook, twitter and www.thefestfl.com.
Last night, we announced the recently reunited Replacements would be headlining Riot Fest in Denver, Toronto, and Chicago. At the same time, however, we failed to bring you the news of the initial lineups for Toronto and Denver being announced.
Toronto’s first wave of bands includes Rocket from the Crypt, The Flatliners, Dinosaur Jr., and a bunch of shitty metal bands, while Denver’s lineup, which is obviously the better of the two, features FLAG, Bad Religion, Alkaline Trio, Rancid, Public Enemy, Against Me!, and a couple of shitty metal bands.

We’ll keep you posted as more bands are added to the lineups of all 3 festivals. For the time being, head over to the Riot Fest site to pickup your tickets.Add to My Radar
The recently reunited alternative/punk rock legends The Replacements will be the headliner for all three shows at this year’s Riot Fest in Toronto (August 24-25), Chicago (September 13-15) and Denver (Septembers 21-22). These will be the band’s first shows since their break up in 1991. Who else is involved in the reunion besides Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson remains unknown.
For the semi-complete lineup for this year’s Riot Fest, go here.
Earlier this year, The Replacements released the covers EP Songs for Slim, which was made to help pay medical bills for their former guitarist Slim Dunlap. Their last full-length studio album, All Shook Down, was released in 1990, a year before their split.Add to My Radar
Yesterday Bad Religion played Rock am Ring in Germany and in true Euro style (they never seem to do this in the States) the entire set was shot in HD with multiple cameras. This isn’t your average shaky iPhone video taken from the edge of the pit. It’s quality stuff and if you’ve got 45 mins its a great listen/watch.
Bad Religion is currently touring on their album True North, which came out earlier this year via Epitaph Records.Add to My Radar

The original, pre-Milo lineup of the legendary Descendents (Bill Stevenson, Tony Lombardo and Frank Navetta) played a few songs at Stockage ’02, a rather epic show that Stevenson put together at the Starlight in his somewhat new home of Fort Collins, Colorado. Little did I realize until now that the performance was captured on video. Check it out here.

2013 marks the 35th anniversary of the ‘Nardcore’ punk movement. For those of you who are too young to remember (who am I kidding…I’m one of them!), the Nardcore movement centered around Ventura County, California, and spawned such seminal bands as RKL (Rich Kids on LSD), Dr. Know, Ill Repute, Scared Straight and more.
To mark the occasion, a bunch of Nardcore acts are coming together for “Nardstock,” a one-day event in Ventura timed to line up A) with the 44th anniversary of Woodstock and B) the release of “Clean Cut American Kids,” a documentary about Ill Repute.
