DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (Screeching Weasel, Pennywise & more)

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome to the latest installment of the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is a weekly column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. So 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!

In case you missed our story about it earlier this week, my favorite Screeching Weasel record Anthem For A New Tomorrow is getting a 30th Anniversary reissue. Italy’s Striped Music is pressing the record on pink vinyl (limited to 500 copies). All copies come with a poster and CD; pre-order here. If you just want the compact disc ? for some reason (I mean, it does have bonus tracks!), you can buy it here.

Another one to file under “new pressing of an old record” is this new “Apple/Lemon” color variant (1,000 copies btw) of Pennywise‘s About Time. This LP came back in print a few years ago and Epitaph‘s been milking the fuck out of these variants ever since. But that’s cool, it’s a great album! Get your copy here.

How about some new music? We like new music, right guys? The Bar Stool Preachers have a new album called Above the Static due out March 31st on Pure Noise Records. Check out their music video for the latest single below and pre-order the LP here (they’ve got a bunch of cool color variants for those of you who are into that kinda thing (I’m into that kinda thing)).

Back to new plastic with old music etched into it… The Bronx‘s IV is back in print for the first time since its initial release in 2013. The variant in the picture appearing on your computer monitor (or the screen of your cellular device) is limited to 500 copies and can be obtained for fungible currency here. Go get ’em, tiger!

Oh shit! More new music! Ramones-worshiping Australian pop-punks the Rimmingtons are releasing their debut album Rocket to Rimtown February 6th on Hey Pizza! Records. Check out a few tracks below and pre-order the LP here (US ?) or here (AUS ?).

Rounding out the column this week is Something To Do Records with a new compilation featuring 15 awesome pop-punk bands, including the Budweisers, Goin’ Places, the Travoltas and many more (12 more to be exact ?). You can pre-order this killer LP here.

And 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. See ya next week!
