AJJ tease new music in perhaps the strangest way possible

When AJJ (formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad) announced that their new album would be releasing sometime this year, I for one was absolutely brimming with excitement. I guess the band must have sensed the general anticipation, because ever since releasing the video for “Top of My Game”, they’ve switched to teasing their music in the most esoteric way possible. Members of the group have been posting weird Vlogs to Facebook of themselves eating cereal, opening random boxes, and even digging through their own trash, all of which have been accompanied by brief snippets of their coming songs. The videos themselves are funny, in a typically weird AJJ kind of way, and from what I’m hearing, this could be shaping up to be an awesome album. You can check them out here.

Plan-It-X offer entire catalog for $134.96

So this is something a little different. Those fine folks over at Plan-It-X have just put their entire catalog on sale for exactly $134.96. It’s definitely a hefty sum, especially since punk-rockers of the folk variety aren’t exactly known for rolling in disposable income. Than again, this collection does include albums such as The Taxpayer’s “God Forgive These Bastards”, Ramshackle Glory’s “Live The Dream”, and the Ghost Mice/AJJ split, arguably three of the greatest folk-punk albums of all time. So hey, if your wallets feeling a little hefty, and you wanna hugely expand your folk-punk collection, check out the labels Bandcamp page here.



Andrew Jackson Jihad shorten name to AJJ, stream new song “Now That I’m at the Top of My Game”

Andrew Jackson Jihad have announced that they are officially shortening their name to AJJ. Here’s an excerpt from the band’s Facebook post explaining the change:

“The two biggest reasons for this are:
1.) We are not Muslims, and as such, it is disrespectful and irresponsible for us to use the word jihad in our band’s name.
2.) We no longer wish to be a living reminder of president Andrew Jackson. Interesting historical figure as he was, he was an odious person and our fascination with him has grown stale.”

You can read the whole post here.

Meanwhile, the band have also shared a new song titled “Now That I’m at the Top of My Game.” The song will appear on the band’s upcoming studio album, and you can listen to it below. No other information has been released on the new album yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
