DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (Paint It Black, Lagwagon, Chilled Monkey Brains & More)

Greetings, and welcome to the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is the weekly* column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. Kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

Check out the video edition of this week’s Record Radar, presented by our friends at Punk Rock Radar:

I’ve always gotta give love to Floridian ska bands, so we’ll start this week’s Record Radar with a shoutout to Chilled Monkey Brains. Back to the Mud is their first new record in a long time – check out the lead single below and pre-order the LP and/or CD here.

Speaking of bands who haven’t released a new album in a while, Paint it Black surprised everyone this week with the announcement of a new 8-song EP called Famine. It’s due out November 3rd on Revelation Records. Check out the lead single below and get the record here.

Last week we premiered a new single from American Television, who has a new album called Scars due out September 22nd on Smartpunk Records. They’ve got some sweet color variants up for pre-order on their webstore; each is limited to 200 copies. The band will have a tour variant (ltd to 100 copies) available at their upcoming shows as well.

Some random Fat Wreck releases are getting EU exclusive color variants from Final Vinyl. Up first is Lagwagon’s latest album Railer, with a new red variant limited to 500 copies. You can get it here.

And the other record is Rise Against’s debut album The Unraveling, with a new yellow color variant also limited to 500 copies. Grab it here. Looks like both of these should start shipping on September 30th.

‘68 has a new album coming out later this month on Pure Noise Records. Yes, and… is the 3rd LP from the two piece band fronted by Josh Scogin (ex-The Chariot, Norma Jean, etc.). Check out the first single “Removed Their Hooks” below and grab the record on one of the awesome color variants available here.

The Fest is right around the corner and Sell The Heart Records & Iodine Recordings are releasing an awesome compilation LP to celebrate. The comp is limited to 200 copies and features songs by the Smoking Popes, Wolf-Face, Celebration Summer and more. Get the record here or at the Fest Flea Market.

Here’s a new pressing of an old album. Early 2000’s pop-punk band Over It’s Timing is Everything is getting its first ever vinyl release in honor of its 20th birthday. There are three variants – split yellow/red (300 copies), solid red (300 copies), and black (400 copies). Get yours here.

Nebraska pop-punk veterans The Young Hasselhoffs have a new record coming out next month on Mom’s Basement Records. Check out the latest single below and pre-order Dear Departed here. They’ve got a bunch of sweet color variants and bundles on offer.

Asian Man Records announced two new releases this week, with the first being from The Atom Age! Their new self-titled LP is due out September 29th, but pre-orders are shipping now. Check out the single “New Season” below and grab the record here.

Asian Man’s other new release is from a band called Bat Boy ft. members of Spraynard and Sundials. Check out the single “Decoder Ring” and head over to the Asian Man webstore to get your copy of Fun Machine.

Millencolin released an LP combining their first two demos last year and it quickly sold out. Now it’s back in print with two new color variants, limited to 300 copies each. Head over to the band’s webstore to get Goofy & Melack on green and/or pink vinyl.

And last but not least, a record I’ve been anticipating for nine months now – the debut album from one man melodic punk band Dead Alright! The project from Louis-Charles Berthiaume of Brand New Lungs has been drip feeding single after single all year, leading up to this announcement of a full-length album due out October 6th on Thousand Islands Records. Check out the latest single below and pre-order Dancing Through the End of Days here.

Well, that’s all, folks. Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs (or do, I’m not your father). See ya next week!
