Here's a new punk act for you to add to your radar. Splitfist hails from Milton, Ontario and the fivesome play a an aggressive brand of punk rock that calls to mind the vocals of The Flatliners' Chris Cresswell against a slightly more pop-punky backdrop. The group's debut 2 song EP "Knuckle Dragger" is catchy as hell and if its any indication of what's to come from these guys in the future I think we're going to be hearing a lot more of these guys. But don't take my word for it, stream their new EP here where you can also download it for free.

According to Examiner.com, the new album from Glenn Danzig’s eponymous band Danzig is due for release in the fall of next year, and his long-awaited full-length covers effort is due in March. He has also been working on an EP of Elvis Presley covers. Asked if there is any other musical ground that he is interested in covering, Glenn replied, with a laugh:
“No, probably ‘Danzig Sings Elvis’ will be about it. I’m pretty lucky in that a long time ago I started my own label. So I can just put out stuff when I want as long as I have a good distributor and no one can kick me off my own label. So I make sure that it sounds like what people expect Danzig to sound like and hopefully they’ll like the product when it comes out. That’s really all that I do.”
Danzig (the band) last released Death Red Sabaoth in 2010 through Evilive Records.Add to My Radar

Other than playing shows here and there, San Jose’s Shinobu has been relatively quiet since the release of 2009′s Strange Spring Air (most likely in no small part due to guitarist Mike Huguenor’s involvement with his other bands such as Hard Girls, Classics of Love, and, most recently, The Bruce Lee Band), but now the band is gearing up to release a new full length album. Titled 10 Thermidor, the 11 track album will be co-released by Really Records and Lauren Records.
To give you a taste of what’s to come, the band has released the album’s first single “Culture, Inc.”, which you can check out here.
Rather than going the tradition route of release, both labels are doing a fundraising pre-order for 10 Thermidor: aother new song will be released at $1000, a third song will be released once they raise $2000, and at $3000 the entire album will be available to download for free via Quote Unquote Records.

For those of you still needing solace after the sudden departure of bassist/vocalist Brian White and drummer/vocalist Corey LaQuay from the lineup of A Skylit Drive, we bring you now at least a little closure.
The remaining sixty percent of the California screamo band’s lineup issued a lengthy statement today. An excerpt:
We’d like to apologize for the manner in which yesterday’s abrupt & unplanned announcement of Cory and Brian’s departure from A Skylit Drive was. We had known for quite some time that both members were becoming increasingly less happy in the band. Both for their own reasons. We knew their time in ASD was coming to an end. Some of the separation was even mutual, but for you, the fans, ASD as a whole should have been able to create an announcement together regarding the separation…
As for the future of ASD, We will continue on. ASD is about more than one or two people. It’s about the music & the fans. Where the music comes from is safely intact. That we can promise you. As for our fans, there are none better, and we know you’ll be right there by our sides till the end. Knowing that, we have all we need to carry on.
You can read the full statement here.
Also, the band have already announced the first step in their plan toward “carrying on.” As part of the above-listed statement, the band announced plans for a new full-length. It’s called “RISE: ASCENSION,” and it’s a stripped-down, acoustic reworking of their September 2013 release, “RISE.” It’s due out in January 2015, and will be followed by a new full-length over the summer.
