Every year of a band’s existence gives it increased opportunities to look back and reflect and celebrate its own respective high and low points. But if you are a that’s been as seminal and influential to people as SoCal punk veterans Face To Face, who’ve rounded the corner on a quarter century of making music in one form or another, you get to collaborate with fans and look back together.

Founding frontman Trever Keith has announced details of a retrospective coffee table book called “Face To Face – 25 Years of SoCal Punk, The Visual History.” It was compiled by longtime fan (And graphic designer) Aaron Tanner, and it’s chock full of pictures, setlists, stories, and memories from such scene vets as Chris Carraba, Tim McIlrath, Roger Lima and more. The book is slated for release in December, but pre-orders of the limited edition book are available here. As is the standard nowadays, there are a variety of pre-order option packages available, but they all come with a previously unreleased track called “Self-determined.” Check it out!

Face to Face released their latest album, Protection, last May on Fat Wreck Chords. It’s the band’s ninth studio album.

Man, I wish my music school was this cool when I was a kid. On second thought…I wish I had a music school when I was a kid…

As you may or may not know, Danny Thompson, drummer from veteran SoCal punk band Face To Face, co-founded a music school in Southern California (Costa Mesa, to be exact) a number of years ago. It’s called The Music Factory, and it provides a full gamut of music lessons to students interested in all things performance related. More info here.

Anyway, The Music Factor has announced plans for what their calling “A Tribute to SoCal Punk Bands.” It’s effectively a music recital where bands comprised of Music Factory students will tackle songs by Strung Out, The Offspring, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Pennywise, X and Blink 182. Oh, and Face To Face, of course (no pressure to whomever is on that team). Click here for more information.

Southern California melodic punk act Chaser have been a touring band for 11 years and show no signs of slowing down. After playing with some big names in punk rock, numerous tours and a line-up change, the guys still manage to put out some solid straight up punk rock releases (imagine the love child of Pennywise and Strung Out.) I recently sat down with lead singer Mike LeDonne at the Slidebar in Fullerton where we discussed touring, the departure of guitarist Cameron Denning, the SoCal music scene and hot sauce. Delicious hot sauce. Check out the full interview here.
