Jade Puget says AFI are working new music

In a recent interview with Agressive Tendencies, AFI guitarist Jade Puget confirmed that the band has been working on new music, but cannot give definitive details regarding release dates. You can watch the interview below.

AFI’s most recent studio albums Burials was released in 2013. The band went on hiatus last summer, but the band members have since discussed their plans to return with a new album this year.



Guttermouth guitarist talks about new EP “Got It Made”, explains why they haven’t released an album in 10 years

In a recent interviewGuttermouth guitarist Geoff Armstrong talked about the band’s upcoming EP Got It Made, and explained why they haven’t released an album in more than a decade. Here’s what he had to say:

“We kind of wanted to use the EP as a test a little bit. There’s lots of other ideas that we had on the table for songs that we kind of worked with and we had a few more lyrics and just weren’t feeling them so we felt that these were six songs that we wanted to put out. Yeah, we could have thrown another five in for filler and come out with a full length, but we didn’t feel that that was really the thing to do, like, if we weren’t completely satisfied with the songs, we were over it. That being said, there’s definitely some other ideas being thrown around. I don’t want to jump the gun, but I think you can definitely see some more in the future maybe another EP and then something else down the road. You never know, especially with this band, because there’s nothing ever set in stone and we’re not contracted with a record label as far as, ‘Hey you have to put out this and that.’

I think that’s why the gap was so long with putting out records and I think more Mark than anybody else was over the writing process and over being under a contract because some of the old records did some really big numbers and then you put out something afterwards and it does half that or whatever the case may be and the fans don’t like it and everyone is like, ‘They’re starting to get old and their songs suck,’ so I think Mark was feeling some stress and pressure with the writing process or just kind of burned out maybe he didn’t even have anything to say in music for awhile. Then in Australia, he just started coming up with ideas. So who knows with this band? You never know what you’ll see. I could tell you right now, ‘Yeah, we have a full length planned,’ and then it would never come out. It changes by the month depending on what’s going on, but I think everybody is in a good mindset to do more songs for sure.”

Got it Made will be released on July 15th through Bird Attack and Rude Records. Guttermouth have not released a full-length studio album since Shave the Planet, which came out in 2006 via Volcom Entertainment.

Descendents talk about new album “Hypercaffium Spazzinate”

The members of Descendents were recently interviewed by Rolling Stone, where they talked about the lyrics, musical direction and inspiration behind their long-awaited new album Hypercaffium Spazzinate. Guitarist Karl Alvarez states:

“I think there’s quite a bit on the record that’s kind of unflinchingly looking at getting older. And it’s nice because I think a lot of rock bands aren’t very honest about that; they all want to exist in some universe where they’re perpetually between the ages of 21 and 35. We’re codgers; we’re not afraid to admit it.”

Hypercaffium Spazzinate is set for a July 29th release on Epitaph Records. It will be their first studio album since 2004′s Cool to Be You, and their first on Epitaph since 1996′s Everything Sucks.



Jim Lindberg comments on new Pennywise album

Pennywise front-man Jim Lindberg recently sat down for an interview with Communities Digital News. When asked about the state of a new Pennywise album, Lindberg offered some insight:

“I really, really have been pressing that we really gotta get into the studio and it’s kind of been doing chores and then people have to get back to their families and things like that. It just kind of keeps getting put off, but I know everyone has a batch of songs. I’ve got ideas for songs and I know Fletcher was playing some stuff the other day that sounded cool, but we just have to get in there and do it, [...] I’m ready and willing to get into the studio and that’s what everyone says, but they don’t seem to be doing it [...]. I hate to sound pathetic, but if anybody’s been in a band as long as I have been, then they’d understand that the politics of getting into the studio shouldn’t be that difficult, but sometimes they are.”

You can read the full answer and the rest of the interview here.

Pennywise released a compilation album Nineteen Eighty Eight on May 20, 2016 through Hardline Entertainment.



Dave Lombardo talks about new Suicidal Tendencies album

Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo recently spoke to Metal Wani about his involvement with Suicidal Tendencies, including playing on the band’s upcoming album, which they recently began recording. He says:

“I think it’s very typical and very traditional Suicidal Tendencies. It’s that style. It’s Mike Muir and he was a very special style in which he writes his music and his lyrics and his structures. And I love it; I love it. It takes me back to how it all started, which was that punk attitude. I’m very happy to be a part of his organization. I feel very welcomed. I feel very much appreciated, and there’s a lot of respect amongst the musicians, and camaraderie. We have a really good time together. We hang out as a band, which is important; I feel it’s very important.”

You can listen to the rest of the interview below.

Due for release this September, the new Suicidal record will be the band’s first since 2013′s 13, and their first with Lombardo on drums and guitarist Jeff Pogan, who replaced Nico Santora last month.



Interview: Mike Park of Asian Man Records talks label origins, 20 Year Anniversary Show, and more

I remember buying Big D & The Kids Table’s “Good Luck” from a local record store at age 15 and finding inside the ten year anniversary Asian Man Records mail order catalog. In this catalog there was a letter from label founder Mike Park explaining that they were not a big label. He said he ran it out of his parents’ garage, had one phone line with no call waiting, one computer, and two employees (his mom being one of them). This blew my mind and was my simple little introduction to DIY ethics. So when I got the chance to interview the man behind the label himself, it was no small deal to me.

I got to sit on a couch and drink a beer while Mr. Park walked his dog around his neighborhood on a very windy day in San Jose, California. While there were several moments in our interview that I could barely hear him due to the weather, this was still the best interview I’ve ever done and a dream come true for me. Read it below.



Interview: Hugo Mudie, founder of Pouzza Fest

DS Interview: Louise Distras on the eve of her first headline US tour

UK-based folk-punk singer/songwriter, and Dying Scene favorite, Louise Distras is headed out on her first string of headline shows in the US in the very near future…as in, she plays her first such gig today in Los Angeles. We caught up with Distras for an impromptu interview late last night and spun it around for publication this morning in preparation for tonight’s show. Check out our conversation below; never quite done one like this before, but we think it came out pretty entertaining!

Distras is still touring in support of her debut full length album, Dreams From The Factory Floor, which came out in the US via Pirates Press just about a year ago. You can check out her tour dates below as well, just underneath our Q&A!



Adam Pfahler says Jawbreaker are in talks of reuniting

In a recent interview, Jawbreaker drummer Adam Pfahler revealed that he and his bandmates have been practicing together, and are considering a reunion after 20 years apart. He states:

“We’ve totally talked about it, and everyone is excited about it, but it’s gotta be right. It’s gotta be cool. It’s gotta be just right. All the money in the world isn’t gonna make that happen. Everyone’s just gotta be right there with it.”

A video of Adam discussing the possibility of a reunion can be viewed below.

Jawbreaker broke up in 1996, shortly after the release of Dear You. Although the band has never officially reformed, the members of Jawbreaker got together a year ago working on a documentary called Don’t Back Down.
