Philly’s Posers drop new EP – full stream

The long awaited follow up to the Posers debut EP has finally been released last night. I asked the band for a quote on their thoughts about this latest installment, and they told me they wanted it to speak for itself. On the other hand, here at DS we can’t shut up about it. The record is jarring and intricate. Noisey and clean. Malicious, sometimes primitive, and risky.

Listen to Posers Too in full after the cut.

Box Car Racer to reunite for new album?

In a recent interviewBlink-182 drummer Travis Barker talked about the possibility of reuniting with Angels & Airwaves frontman and former Blink bandmate Tom DeLonge for another Box Car Racer album. He states:

“You know, it’s been mentioned [laughs]. That’d be cool, but it’s hard because the last one caused so many problems with Blink. It was weird because at the time I was listening to Stanford Prison Experiment, Pitchfork, Quicksand, Fugazi, all these bands, and Tom [DeLonge] was like, “What the fuck is Quicksand?” He heard it and fell in love and really dived right into that whole post-hardcore genre.

We started writing and had no idea what it was going to be for. I think we were both under the impression in the beginning that it was going to be a Blink album. Then it was like, no let’s do this cool little side project, but we won’t put an album out. Then the label heard it and wanted to put it out. Then there wasn’t going to be a tour, but they were like ah, you can do this tour. It just spiraled out of control. . . But I don’t know. [Mark's] not in the band, so would it cause a lot of problems? Would it not? I have no idea. It’s something I can’t even wrap my head around just because I’m so proud of this album that we’re currently supporting. But I love Box Car. It was a cool album and cool sound.”

Box Car Racer’s only release, a self-titled album, came out in 2002 before they disbanding a year later.
